Using IBM Installation Manager to install Sterling File Gateway

Sterling File Gateway is installed, if IBM Sterling File Gateway option is selected on the Installation Manager, when installing Sterling B2B Integrator.

If your current Sterling B2B Integrator installation includes Sterling File Gateway, then it is updated to V6.0, when you update to Sterling B2B Integrator V6.0.
Important: If you had not used Installation Manager to install your existing Sterling B2B Integrator, then you must select the Install option to update to Sterling File Gateway V6.0. If you had used the Installation Manager, then use the Update option to update to Sterling File Gateway V6.0. In both the cases, you must point to the existing installation directory.
Any additional post installation tasks are not required. However, if Sterling File Gateway was not installed with the existing Sterling B2B Integrator 5.2.x version, you must consider the following scenarios when upgrading to Sterling B2B Integrator V6.0:
  • The existing Sterling B2B Integrator V5.2.x version was installed without using the Installation Manager. In this case, you must select the Install option to update to Sterling B2B Integrator V6.0. If you are updating to a new installation directory, on the feature selection page, you can select IBM Sterling File Gateway to install Sterling File Gateway. However, if you are updating to the existing installation directory, you cannot select or install Sterling File Gateway.
  • The existing Sterling B2B Integrator V5.2.x was installed using the Installation Manager. In this case, you must select the Update option to update to Sterling B2B Integrator V6.0. Here, you do not have the option to select and install IBM Sterling File Gateway. However, when upgrading Sterling B2B Integrator (media upgrade), if you are installing Sterling B2B Integrator to a fresh directory, and pointing to the previous database, then you can install Sterling File Gateway V6.0.

It is strongly suggested to install Sterling File Gateway V6.0 when installing Sterling B2B Integrator V6.0. If for any reason Sterling File Gateway is not installed with Sterling B2B Integrator, you cannot install Sterling File Gateway later using the Installation Manager. You must use the InstallService to install Sterling File Gateway. For more information, see Using InstallService to install Sterling File Gateway.
