This two-part tutorial series describes how to install and cluster WebSphere Process Server V7.0 (hereafter called Process Server). Part 1 deals with the installation and set up of Process Server with the latest fix pack. Part 2 deals with clustering and creating a Golden Topology deployment environment pattern. Throughout the tutorial, the tasks will be performed in a non-GUI or silent mode. The tutorial is developed based on field experiences working with installation and clustering problems. It is intended as a reference for users adopting Process Server V7.0.
WebSphere Process Server V7.0 installer is based on IBM® Installation Manager (IM) software. IM replaces InstallShield for Mutli Platforms (ISMP) based installer used in earlier versions. IM provides an efficient mechanism to maintain software packages providing a one-stop shop for install, update, modify, and uninstall operations. IM also replaces the Update Installer for WebSphere (UPDI) software for applying interim fixes or fix packs to Process Server V7.0. You can read more about IM in the Information Center.
The tutorial provides step-by-step instructions to use the IM to install Process Server V7.0. The topics of silent installation of IM, silent installation of Process Server V7.0, and silent mode upgrade to Fix Pack 3 (V220.127.116.11) are covered. The tutorial ends with installation verification tasks.
