Converting from a single-user installation of IBM Integration Bus to a shared installation of IBM Integration Bus
If you deployed a single-user installation of IBM® Integration Bus, you can convert the deployment to a shared installation so that the deployment can be used by multiple users.
About this task
When you install IBM Integration Bus a work path directory is created where components store internal data, such as installation logs, component details, and trace output. You can change the location of the work path directory if you want; see Changing the location of the work path.
On all platforms except Windows, IBM Integration Bus can be deployed with a private work path directory, which means that the deployment can be used only by the user ID that installed IBM Integration Bus. To convert a single-user installation of IBM Integration Bus to a shared installation, configure the deployment to use a shared work path directory by completing the following steps:
- Log in as root or as a user that has write access to the /var directory.
Open a command window and navigate to the installation directory.
For example, install_dir/iib-10.1.0.2 where install_dir is the directory where you unpacked the installation image.
Type ./iib make registry global
/var/mqsi is created as the new IBM Integration Bus work path directory.
- To give a user access to the shared installation of IBM Integration Bus, add the user to the mqbrkrs group by using the security facilities that are provided by your operating system.
