About this task
An interim fix is a noncumulative fix that resolves a single issue. This topic describes the steps to install an interim fix only; it does not include information about how to prepare the production environment before installing the fix.
By using the update wizard, you can interact with each step in the procedure.
You can install multiple fixes in this procedure.
To install an interim fix in interactive mode, complete the following steps:

- Configure the command line:
- Open a command prompt and navigate to the WebSphere/AppServer/bin directory.
- Run the following script:

- Windows™: setupCmdLine.bat
On the Welcome page, click Next to continue.
Enter the location of the fixes in the Fix location field, or click Browse to navigate to the location of the fixes and then click Next. The update wizard scans the location for fixes.
Select the check boxes of the fixes that you want to install and then click Next.
Confirm whether you backed up any customizations that you made to the IBM Connections interface. This input does not validate any such backup; it is just a reminder to consider backing up any customizations because updates to your deployment might overwrite your customizations.
Enter the WebSphere® Application Server Deployment Manager administrator ID and password for each application and then click Next.
Review the information that you entered. To edit your input, click Back. To start the update, click Next. The installation process can take up to 10 minutes to complete.
Review the result of the update. Click Finish to exit the wizard.
Remove temporary WebSphere Application Server directories such as the app_server_root/profiles/AppSrv01/temp directory.
Perform a full synchronization to push the update to all nodes.
