APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When installing IBM Sterling B2B Integrator using the
    IBM Installation Manager (IIM), which is mandatory since
    version 5.2.6.x, the software is not installed to the
    specified "<installLocation>" but to
    "<installLocation>\install" instead.
    

Local fix

  • Upgrading to 5.2.6 keep the existing install location.
    Thus installing an old version of ISBI that does not require
    IIM and then upgrade to latest release might be a work around
    to do a fresh install to a specified install location.
    

Problem summary

  • When doing a fresh install of IBM Sterling B2B Integrator, the
    installation actually happens inside <install> directory inside
    the given install location in IM GUI  or response file.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was incorrectlly adding the install to the folder
    structure provided during install process
    

Temporary fix
