If the fix pack that you installed is not working, you can uninstall it in silent mode.
Before you begin
Create a response file for the rollback task by running a simulated rollback. For more information, see the Creating a response file
Instead of generating a new response file, you can edit the default response file that is provided with the product. If you use the default response file, you need to add a encrypted password to the file:
Add the encrypted password to the relevant line in the LC_rollback.rsp response file. You usually need to enter passwords for both the WebSphere® Application Server administrator and the database user. For example:
- Open a command prompt and change to the <Lotus_Connections_setup>/Lotus_Connections_install/IM/<OS> directory, where <OS> is your operating system.
- Run the following command:
<data key='user.activities.adminuser.password' value='<encrypted_password>'/>
Repeat these steps for each unique password.
<data key='user.activities.dbUserPassword value='<encrypted_password>'/>
where <encrypted_password> is the value generated by the command.
You might also need to change the default WebSphere Application Server administrator name from wasadmin, if different from your administrator name.
About this task
A silent rollback uses a response file to automate the removal of a fix pack.
To change the paths to the response file and log file, edit the lc_install.ini
To perform a silent rollback, complete the following steps:
- Stop all clusters in your deployment.
- Open a command prompt and change to the IBM® Installation Manager directory. The default location is:
Run the following command:
- AIX or Linux: /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse
- Windows: C:\Program Files\IBM\Installation Manager\eclipse
- AIX or Linux: ./IBMIM --launcher.ini silent-install.ini -input lotus_connections_root/silentResponseFile/<rollback_file>.rsp -log ./rollback.log
- Windows: .\IBMIMc.exe --launcher.ini silent-install.ini -input lotus_connections_root\silentResponseFile\<rollback_file>.rsp -log .\rollback.log
where <rollback_file> is the name of your response file. The default rollback response file is lc_rollback.rsp.
Check the rollback.log
file for errors and repeat this task if necessary.
