Updating the Dynamic Workload Console

Complete this procedure to update the Dynamic Workload Console from General Availability version 9.5 to the latest fix pack level.

When updating the IBM Workload Scheduler environment, it is a good practice to update the Dynamic Workload Console first. If you update the console to the latest fix pack level, you can then use it to verify that your environment is working after updating the remaining components.

If you are using the default database Derby, you can skip this step. If you are using a database other than Derby, create and populate the database tables for the Dynamic Workload Console by following the procedure below.

  1. Log in to the workstation where you plan to install the Dynamic Workload Console.
  2. Download the installation images from IBM Fix Central.
  3. Browse to the folder image_location.
  4. To update the database version, run the following command:
    On Windows operating systems
    cscript configureDb.vbs --rdbmstype db_type --dbhostname db_hostname --dbport db_port --dbname db_name --dbuser db_user --dbpassword db_password --dbadminuser db_administrator --dbadminuserpw db_administrator_password
    On UNIX operating systems
    ./configureDb.sh --rdbmstype db_type --dbhostname db_hostname --dbport db_port --dbname db_name --dbuser db_user --dbpassword db_password --dbadminuser db_administrator --dbadminuserpw db_administrator_password
    On z/OS operating systems
    ./configureDb.sh --rdbmstype db_type --dbhostname DB_hostname
    --dbport db_port --dbname db_name --dbuser db_user
    --dbadminuser DB_admin_user --dbadminuserpw DB_admin_pwd
    --zlocationname zOS_location_containing_db --zbufferpoolname buffer_pool_in_zOS_location

For more information about all parameters and supported values of the configureDb command, see Database configuration - configureDB script.

  1. Start the installation launching the following command:
    On Windows operating systems
    cscript dwcinst.vbs --acceptlicense yes --inst_dir INST_DIR
    On UNIX operating systems
    ./dwcinst.sh --acceptlicense yes --inst_dir INST_DIR
    On z/OS operating systems
    ./dwcinst.sh --acceptlicense yes --inst_dir INST_DIR

    where INST_DIR is the path to the Dynamic Workload Console installation directory. For example, if the console is installed in /opt/wa/DWC, then the value of INST_DIR is /opt/wa. For information about the installation directory, see Finding out what has been installed in which IBM Workload Automation instances.

    Note: The acceptlicense and inst_dir parameters are required. All other parameters are ignored by dwcinst command, except for the following two optional parameters: lang and skipcheckprereq.
