IBM® Installation Manager is the technology for installing and maintaining IBM WebSphere® Application Server V8 and later. Typically, Installation Manager is installed on every production system with the products whose lifecycle it is used to govern. This article reviews the basic components of Installation Manager, and documents a procedure for installing master images of WebSphere Application Server that can be deployed to a production environment and then later serviced in place. This can facilitate mass deployments, in both virtualized and non-virtualized environments. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
