Re: Maximo 7.5 and Websphere 82012-05-25T10:25:40ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Good morning,
WebSphere 8 is indeed supported with Maximo 18.104.22.168 so that is good that you are asking about these specific versions.
If you reference this URL:
You can drill down to your target operating system and then download the appropriate files.
You will need to download the following three components for a successful installation:
1. The "IBM Installation Manager" of the current version for your specific platform. This is the actual installation program that you will run to perform the setup of WebSphere 8. For example, if your platform is AIX your part number would be CZM8SML.zip and the description for this file is "IBM Installation Manager for AIX PowerPC (required to Install WebSphere Application Server V8.0), Multilingual"
2. The 4 zip files that make up the "core" of WebSphere 8. These 4 files have a description of "IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.0 (1 of 4) for Multiplatforms, Multilingual" and are actually cross platform so you will only need to download this set of 4 files once even if you are going to install WebSphere onto multiple platforms. The 4 part numbers for these are: CZM9HML, CZM9IML, CZM9JML, and CZVG3ML
3. The 4 zip files that make up the "supplements" of WebSphere 8. These 4 files have a description of "IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.0 Supplements (1 of 4) for Multiplatforms, Multilingual" and are also cross platform like the "core" files that I mentioned above. The 4 part numbers you will need are: CZM91ML, CZM94ML, CZM95ML, CZXR9ML.
To perform the actual installation simply extract the Installation Manager into it's own directory structure and then extract the other 8 zip files into a common directory structure. The Installation Manager will let you create a "Repository" which is the directory structure that you created from the extraction of the 8 cross platform zip files. Simply point the Installation Manager to this directory and let it install.
A nice feature of the Installation Manager is that it will check for updates so FixPacks can automatically be downloaded and applied via the Installation Manager instead of needing to download and install the WebSphere UpdateInstaller and it's .pak files manually.
Once installed the administration and deployment process is identical to WAS 7 from a Maximo perspective.
Hope this helps,

Can you confirm that WebSphere 8 can be used with Maximo 7.5 without any additional licensing costs? Our IBM rep yesterday said that some IBM products that bundle WebSphere have specific versions that are covered by the license.

You must have your own license in order to run it on Websphere 8. Whatever your version of Maximo ships with is what you're entitled to use, but for the organizations that already have Websphere 8 they test it for compatibility so that you don't need two different Websphere installs. Same is true for DB2 (even though later versions may work, you're only entitled to what it ships with).
