Re: Tutorial - Installing IBM Connections 4.0 on a Linux RHEL 6.3 64-bit system: LESSON 1 - Preparing Your System

In Task 4, you need to ensure that you're using a Firefox version < 15.0.1

For Firefox 15.0.1 and above, the installation will fail, because of the following http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/936845

Running:

./launchpad.sh

+ firefox -P Profile_10075 -profile /tmp/IBM_LaunchPad_10075/Profile_10075 file:///mnt/hgfs/installs/WAS/launchpad/Mozilla.html

Line 68 of Mozilla.html calls:

netscape.security.PrivilegeManager.enablePrivilege("UniversalXPConnect");

...then fails and shows a browser not supported page in the browser. The only workaround I can see atm is to downgrade Firefox to <15.0.1

Just FYI:

In Step 4, the line:

"The fbrowser.sh file is located at ./IBM/WebSphere/AppServer2/firststeps/fbrowser.sh"

-- this file is not present until *AFTER* installation.

I have no /opt/install/WAS/IBM directory, so cannot edit this file. I downloaded C1G35ML.tar.gz from IBM PartnerWorld Software Access Catalog.

What's wrong do you think?

The error reported earlier went away after applying the websphere fixes correctly, it is laborious though to apply each fix ( install.sh errors out when installing Connections saying CLFRP0016E: The Websphere Application Server is not supported)

We have a new error that Application Security is not configured in the deployment manager, so Connections install will not proceed - working on fixing that.

Is Ubuntu Linux 64 bit supported? Perhaps a different tutorial?

Re: Tutorial - Installing IBM Connections 4.0 on a Linux RHEL 6.3 64-bit system: LESSON 1 - Preparing your system

We cannot make launchpad.sh work though we edited the browser.sh file for Firefox 10

install.sh errors out when installing Connections saying CLFRP0016E: The Websphere Application Server is not supported. Though we download the part numbers as per the latest IBM Connections download page and also downloaded the fixes as in this tutorial.

Re: Tutorial - Installing IBM Connections 4.0 on a Linux RHEL 6.3 64-bit system: LESSON 1 - Preparing your system

I installed a pure RHEL 6.3 and followed your instructions. I followed Lesson 1-2-3.

1. Everything is all right

2. Too many folders. I could not follow them. I just created WASinst, PAKinst, DB2inst and C4inst. When I unpacked WAS packages HTTP install was unpacked under WASinst. It was OK and simple for me. All fixes and updates were under PAKinst.

Task 8: Prepare to install Tivoli Directory Integrator - Step 2

At Step 2 you say:

Download the following TDI 7.1 package from Fix Central

7.1.0-TIV-TDI-FP0005.zip IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator 7.1 Fix Pack 5

BUT

At Step 4 you say:

Locate the file 7.1.0-TIV-TDI-FP0006.zip* in the results and select it. Click Continue.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First you ask to download Fix Pack 5 and then you point to Fix Pack 6 (minor issue but a bit confusing). I recommend to say "Locate the file 7.1.0-TIV-TDI-FP0005.zip* OR NEWER in the results and select it. Click Continue."

Thomas, got your mail and fixed the wording for Task 10 and replaced the graphics. Really appreciate your helpful comments!

Hi Thomas - great feedback! I made several changes. One question is about the comment about Task 10 step #4 needing the wizard unpacked. Can you please provide elaborate?

Thanks for taking the time.

Re: Tutorial - Installing IBM Connections 4.0 on a Linux RHEL 6.3 64-bit system: LESSON 1 - Preparing your system

Hey Vinny,

very nice !

Some comment from reading through if I may ?

Task 3, Step 1 :

It says :"Create directory paths ..." - maybe it would avoid misunderstanding to cut out the 'Create' as the paths will be creating during the installation ?

I have problems to make sense of "required" and "a database is required" below the table . Maybe could be just removed as well ?

Task 6:

The details are following the install instructions, ie. 7.0.0.21 + additional fixes . This is absolutely correct . In the meantime 7.0.0.25 is out that includes all fixes ( as we are in general recommend to use latest fixpack anyway ) . So just wondering if it wasn't easier to just take the latest FP as we are anyway usually recommending to update to the latest ? Here is a great starting point to check for recommended WAS fixes : http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980

Task 7, Step2:

I suppose that should rather read "DB2 FixPack" and the package name is off ? Connections 4 requires FP5 or later . I think for our purposes the server version of the FP is sufficient ? I understand you can use that even for the Database client ( at least seemed to have worked for me ) . I like that page as starting point looking for DB2 patches : http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27023555 .

Task 10:

Step1 : The files to be downloaded are both :

IBM_Connection40_Wzd_LNXAIX_CIA3HML.tar

IBM_Connections40_LinAIX_CIA3EML.tar

Step3: The filenames got a bit mixed .

Step4: The directory 'opt'install/TDI' is wrong and the Wizard file still needs to be unpacked

Looking forward to your next lesson .

thx!
