Updating from a previous releaseAdded by IBM on May 8, 2014 | Version 1 (Original)
|If you are installing from a previous release where you installed the Portal application archive (PAA) with the Portal Solutions Installer, update the installation to get the newest features. This installation method was available starting with the IBM® Connections Portlets for WebSphere® Portal version 126.96.36.199 Refresh. If you installed a previous version of the IBM Connections portlets using the manual installation, you cannot update the installation. You must uninstall the portlets and then reinstall using the complete installation steps.
- If you installed the Communities VMM Adapter to integrate Community membership, execute:
ConfigEngine remove-SNPortletsVMM -DWasPassword=[was-admin-password] -DPortalAdminPwd=[portal-admin-password]
- Run the following commend:
ConfigEngine uninstall-paa -DappName=SNPortlets -DforceUninstall=true -DWasPassword= [was-admin-pwd] -DPaaRootPath= [paa-install-root] -DPortalAdminPwd= [portal-admin-pwd]
- Do one of the following:
Restart WebSphere Portal.
Follow the instructions in Installing the IBM Connections Portlets for WebSphere Portal to install the new version of the IBM Connections Portlets.
If you have the Search Integration configure, follow the instructions in the prerequisites section of Deploying search integration to update the search prerequisites.
If you installed the Communities VMM Adapter to integrate Community membership, execute the command in step 1 of Configuring the IBM Connections repository for VMM to reconfigure the Communities VMM Adapter.
- If you are uninstalling on WebSphere Portal 188.8.131.52, manually delete the Connections Portlets assembly directory, SNPortlets, from the [paa-install-root] folder.
- If you are uninstalling on WebSphere Portal 8, execute the following command to delete the Connections Portlets assembly files from the [paa-install-root] folder:
ConfigEngine delete-paa -DassemblyList=SNPortlets -DWasPassword= [was-admin-pwd] -DPortalAdminPwd= [portal-admin-pwd]
Check to make sure the SNPortlets
directory has been deleted from the [paa-install-root]
folder. If you get a message that files are being used by another application or are unable to delete the SNPortlets
directory, stop WebSphere Portal and manually delete the SNPortlets
