    I just downloaded version 9.0 last night and have now downloaded the 9.0.0.1 fixpack.  Is there a way to roll the fixpack into the installation image?  We want to make it easier for our developers to install it.  None of them have installed 9.0 yet.

    Steve,

    The 9.0 release and the 9.0.0.1 fixpack can be installed at the same time by specifying both in the Installation Manager Repository preferences.  Do your developers already have Installation Manager installed?  Do your developers have Internet access?  If they do, they can click the 'Check for other versions' button on the 1st panel of Installation Manager when installing RDi 9.0 to have it search and find the 9.0.0.1 fixpack.

    Another option depending on how many developers you have is to use response files so that you can do the silent installs from command-line.  The response file could install Installation Manager, RDi 9.0, and RDi 9.0.0.1. 

    Also, you could use the IBM Packaging Utility to create your own internal repository of RDi 9.0+9.0.0.1.
