Pinned topic WebSphere Portal Enable vs Extend

‏2012-04-26T14:43:30Z |
Hello everyone,

As you may have already known there are three types of WebSphere Portal licenses: Express, Enable and Extend. Once you have installed it you may find it difficult to determine what type of installation you deal with.

I have found this topic talking about that issue: http://www.mjonik.pl/blog/2011/06/websphere-portal-enable-vs-exten/

That way works properly for V7 but not for previous versions.

Do you know some way to identify the installation we deal with?

I know that it can be guessed looking at the software installed with the websphere portal product. I would like to find another way using for example vpd.properties file (I do not know exactly what each field means).

Thank you very much in advanced.

    Hi David,

    Not sure if there is any way to find the product type after it is installed. However, you can check the wp_profile/PortalServer/wps.prooperties file. Check the property "WPFamilyName"

    • If it is server then it is Portal Server
    • If it is content then it is Extend or Enable
    • If it is express then it is Express
