This tutorial walks through a single-node installation of IBM Connections on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 64-bit system . The first eight lessons are required to configure a working environment.
Lesson 1: Preparing your system
Lesson 2: Installing WebSphere Application Server (WAS)
Lesson 3: Installing IBM HTTP Server and Plugin
Lesson 4: Installing WAS Fix Packs
Lesson 5: Installing DB2
Lesson 6: Installing Tivoli Directory Integrator
Lesson 7: Installing a Domino LDAP Directory
Lesson 8: Installing IBM Connections 4.0
Lesson 9: Installing Cognos (optional - requires another VM with 4G RAM and 100G disk space)
Connections 4.0 requires some type of database. In this tutorial, we will use DB2.
In this lesson, you will install and configure DB2 for use with Connections 4.0.
At the end of this lesson, you will be able to install and configure DB2 for use with Connections 4.0. At the end of this tutorial, you will be ready to install and configure a single-node IBM Connections 4.0 environment running on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 64-bit system.
After completing this lesson, you will be able to do the following:
- Identify the Tivoli Directory Integrator (TDI) Installation and Fix Pack Files
- Install TDI
- Install TDI Fix Pack 5
At the end of this lesson, you will be able to install and configure TDI and fix pack.
A RHEL 6.3 64-bit machine with a minimum of 8G memory and 100G of disk space is required.
Task 1: Install TDI
In this task, we will locate and install the Tivoli Directory Integrator.
Login as user root.
Locate the TDI files below that were downloaded and extracted in Lesson 1, Task 8, Steps 1 & 2
. They should be in the directory /opt/install/TDI
Part Number: CZ9MNML
Description: IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator Identity Edition v7.1 for Linux 64-bit IA x86
Description: IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator 7.1 Fix Pack 5
Note: If you do not have these files and need to download them, go to XL Software Downloads
or IBM Passport Advantage On-line Web site
or Fix Central
Install the XXXXXXXXXX server. Switch to /opt/install/DB2/ese and run db2setup to start the DB2 installation wizard.
[root@connections4 ]# cd /opt/install/DB2/ese
[root@connections4 ese ]# ./db2setup
|Result: You have successfully installed TDI XXXXXXXXXXXX and verified that it is operational.|
Task 2: Install TDI Fix Pack 5
In this task, we will install the required DB2 fix pack 5 to bring the server to DB2 v18.104.22.168.
Log in as user root.
Located the fix pack file vXXXX.tar.gz
previously downloaded in Lesson 1, Task 7, Step 4
. It should be in the directory /opt/install/DB2
. Make a new DB2Fix directory and extract the files.
[root@database4]# mkdir /opt/install/DB2Fix
[root@database4]# cd /opt/install/DB2Fix
[root@database4 DB2Fix]# tar xvfz ../DB2/v9.7fp5_linuxx64_universal_fixpack.tar.gz
Result: You have successfully installed DB2 fix pack 5 to bring the server to DB2 v22.214.171.124.
Task 3: Apply the DB2 License to Your Server
In this task, we will ...
