This topic describes the default directory paths for IBM
IBM Installation Manager
Each instance of Installation Manager must have its own installation directory and agent data directory.
The directories where IBM
Installation Manager is installed are determined by the type of user account that you used to install the product.
Any changes that you make to an installation of IBM
Installation Manager that you installed with a root user or non-administrator account do not affect an installation of IBM
Installation Manager that you installed with a non-root user or non-administrator account. The reverse is also true.
The following table indicates the location of the relevant directories.
