    If you already installed IBM Installation Manager, then all you need to do is add the location to one or more of the WebSphere Application Server trial edition repositories.

    WAS v8.5 Trials & ILAN repository locations
    WebSphere Application Server - Express v8.5
    http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASExpressTrial

    WebSphere Application Server
    http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASBASETrial

    WebSphere Application Server for Developers
    http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASDeveloperILAN

    WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment Edition
    http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASNDTrial

    WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment DMZ Proxy
    http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85NDDMZTrial

    WebSphere Application Server Edge Load Balancer
    http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85EDGEULBTRIAL

    IBM HTTP Server
    http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85IHSILAN

    WebSphere Application Server Supplements
    (includes IHS, Web Server Plug-ins, WebSphere Customization Toolkit which has the Web Server Plug-in Config Tool, and more)
    http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASSupplements

    WebSphere Web 2.0 and Mobile Toolkit
    http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V11W2MTKILAN

    Note that the WebSphere Application Server repositories already include links into the repository for the WebSphere Supplements. So, for example, after adding the respository for WebSphere Application Server, when you go through the Install Wizard you will also have options displayed to choose to install IBM HTTP Server, the web server plug-ins and the WebSphere Customization Toolkit).
    The installation and creation process is basically the same as it was for version 8.0.
    See this previous forum post for my description:

    I also provided more detailed installation instructions in anothe forum post:

      Thanks a lot Scott for this quick & detail reply.

      Hi Scott,

      We have been trying to locate the WAS 8.5.0.x installation repository but is only able to see the 8.5.5.0.  Is there any way to get around this issue?

        The default behavior for IBM Installation Manager is to try to install the latest version of the product package that is available. However, you can choose to install the product at any version level that is available.  For the trial editions WebSphere Application Server version 8.5.x you can use the same repository location in your preferences to install version 8.5.5.0 (currently the latest version level), but can also easily install versions 8.5.0.0, 8.5.0.1, or 8.5.0.2.  To view and select earlier versions of an installation package, go to the panel where you "Select packages to install:" and then check the checkbox to "Show all versions." The list of available packages will refresh and you will see individual checkboxes for each version level.

          Thanks Scott,

          Looks like I missed the last step of "Show all versions" after the "Check for Other Versions..."

      Hi,

      i cannot download from the repository http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASBASETrial when i put it in the IBM Installation Manager.

      The following repositories are not connected:

      -https://www-912.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASBASETrial


        Repository of type CompositeRepository can not be created at location https://www-912.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V85WASBASETrial.
