On a server that already had an existing WebSphere
® Application Server installation, apply some additional software updates after updating the server with Interim Feature Release 1.
Before you begin
To perform these steps, you must have already installed the WebSphere
Application Server Update Installer.
About this task
The iFixes required by Sametime
® are installed in a sub-directory ComponentNameHotFix/native
of each of the component updates (for example, STConsoleHotfix/native
). Each of the component updates contains an identical set of iFixes that can be used for every server. Follow these steps to install the WebSphere
Application Server software updates.
If you upgraded to WebSphere
Application Server 126.96.36.199 on any Sametime
servers, additional fixes are needed, as described in this tech note.
- Ensure that you stop all running processes as described in Command reference for starting and stopping servers.
- If you have not already launched the WebSphere Application Server Update Installer, log in with the same user account used to install the Sametime software, then navigate to the directory where you installed the Update Installer and run the update program.
AIX®, Linux™, and Solaris
- The Welcome screen is displayed. Click Next.
- Specify the location of the product that you want updated.
- Accept the default to Install maintenance. Click Next.
- At the prompt, enter the directory name containing the Sametime update packages (for example, ComponentNameHotFix/native). Click Next.

- After you install the update package, check the installation log to verify that the install is successful. The log can be found at was_install_root/logs/update/maintenance_package.install.
To verify which WebSphere
Application Server updates have been installed, run the versionInfo command from the was_install_root
AIX, Linux, and Solaris
./versionInfo.sh -maintenancePackages > version.txt
versionInfo -maintenancePackages > version.txt
The command creates a text file that lists all the WebSphere
Application Server updates that have been installed on the system.
