Pinned topic Error installing installation manager (help needed)

‏2014-03-09T15:44:10Z |

Getting an error (see message below) while trying to install  installation manager (for developers), i have not made any changes  to the software i downloaded from ibm site (why does this not work)? I want to eventually install WAS8.5.

After errors are displayed, once i click on the ok button the installer application closes.

install.config has the foll=>

<server>

   <repository location='.'/>
   <repository location='http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASDeveloperILANL'/>
</server>
 

Error Message

    things started working... without any changes on my side... maybe there was some maintainence going on the repository server... wish we could get a better warning.. sure wasted a lot of time with this.

    Now Installation manager is installed and i added the foll repository http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V8.5WASDeveloperILAN

     i tested the connection and it shows connected.

    However the install button is greyed and i cannot proceed..... so i can't select WAS8.5 and install it.... (any suggestions)

    Went back and installed WAS along with IM (both packages at the same time).. Finally done.. installing software should be easier than this :)

    Between the time it wasnt working to when it strted working i made no changes..... so proxy shouldn't be an issue. I think something was going on server side yesterday. Its working now though.

    This still seems to be a problem with me. Don't really understand what the install is expecting. I was expecting the downloaded zip to contain everything required to install.

    I am running the install.exe in the unpacked zip. I expected this to just run and download and install whatever packages it required?

    My install.xml contained the following for repositories:

     

    <server>
      <repository location='.'/>
      <repository location='http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASBASETrialL'/>
    </server>
     

    And I get the error as described by the OP. I've tried this several times, both 32bit and 64 bit. I've also tried using the main Installation Manager, but there are no packages found. It is not at all intuitive how to use these installation managers. It should guide you through all the steps, but it seems so convoluted just to install some trial software!

      You should try to download the latest Installation Manager (v1.8.1) and install it. The version that is currently available through the WebSphere Trials download pages is an earlier version.

      To get the latest Installation Manager go to the installation Manager download page:  http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27025142

      Download the latest version and run the installer. If you already installed Installation Manager, you do not have to uninstall it. The new Install Manager installer will detect the existing copy and update it. That way you will not loose any repository locations or other preference settings that you have established.

      If need be, you might have to manually add the location to the trial repository to the repository preferences.

      Due to POODLE exploit, IBM has shut off SSL v3 authentication for the IBM-hosted trials repositories. Earlier versions of Installation Manager use SSL v3, so they will fail to connect. The latest version of Installation Manager does not use SSL v3 for authentication, so it should be able to connect successfully.

        I have same problem than 47SR_Daniel_Tillin. 

        1. I installed IBM Installation Manager 64 bits version 1.8.1 (last version).

        2. I downloaded IBM Web Application Server Developers Version 8: https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/reg/download.do?source=swerpws-wasdevim85&S_PKG=500023135&S_TACT=109J84JW&S_CMP=web_opp_ibm_ws_appinfra_wasdev&lang=es_ES&cp=UTF-8&dlmethod=http

        For windows 64 bits.

        Installation Manager for Windows 64-bit with WebSphere Application Server for Developers including Liberty, v8.5.5
        DEVELOPERSILAN.agent.installer.win32.win32.x86_64.zip  (160M)

        3. I executed install.exe inside the folder, expecting that everithing goes fine. But y obtain the error:

        No se puede encontrar el paquete com.ibm.websphere.DEVELOPERSILAN.v85 especificado en el archivo D:\Profiles\jCastaneda\Downloads\DEVELOPERSILAN.agent.installer.win32.win32.x86_64\install.xml.

        4. Install.xml points to this repository:

        http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASDeveloperILAN

        And page shows this message:

        Error 404: SRVE0190E: File not found: /V85WASDeveloperILAN

        Is it a temporal problem of servers? Is it a problem with my proxy? I don`t think so, since I am arriving to that page...

        Regards.

          There have been some temporary issues with the repository servers recently.  I was able to reproduce the error message early this morning. But then, less than 30 minutes later, when I tried to show the issue to a co-worker; I could not reproduce it again. Please try again and let me know if the error continues to happen.
