Before you begin
You can create a response file using IBM
® Installation Manager or by editing the file that is provided with the product. For more information about editing the file, see the Default response file
About this task
When you edit the default response file to suit your own environment, you must create encrypted passwords and add them to the file. Create encrypted passwords for both WebSphere
® Application Sever and your databases.
To create encrypted passwords for a response file, complete the following steps:
Add the encrypted password to the relevant line in the 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 IBM_Connections_setup/IBM_Connections_Install/IM/OS/tools 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.
