Re: Installing and Configuring WebSphere Portal v8 as a non-root user

Hi Hunter,

A qq reg the Porta 8 installation as non root user.

We are trying to do a full install of Portal 8 using a non root user on a server that is already running Portal 8 (installed as root) in a different location. So can we install the Installation Manager again on that server in a different location ? When we are trying to do that it shows the following error.

-bash-4.1$ ./installc -acceptLicense

CRIMC1018E ERROR: Administrator privileges are required.

You started the Installation Manager in administrator mode, but you do not have the required administrator privileges. On Microsoft Windows XP Professional, you must be a member of an administrator group. On Windows Vista, Windows 2008, and Windows 7, you must use the Run as administrator option. On Linux, UNIX, IBM i, and z/OS, you must have root privileges.

To use the Run as administrator option on Windows:

1. Right-click the executable icon.

2. Select Run as administrator.

3. Enter an administrator password when prompted for either an administrator password or a confirmation.

4. Click Continue.
