Error description

  • The process detection bundle should not check WebSphere
    Application Server running processes when -skipInstall is
    used.

  • To bypass the running process detection, please follow the
    steps below:
    - Backup <IM Root>/eclipse/configuration/config.ini
    - Open <IM Root>/eclipse/configuration/config.ini in an editor

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Installation Manager                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Users can create a response file by     *
    *                      recording their actions in              *
    *                      Installation Manager. However,          *
    *                      Installation Manager shows error        *
    *                      message:                                *
    *                      "Running processes have been detected   *
    *                      that may interfere with the current     *
    *                      operation. Stop all WebSphere and       *
    *                      related processes before continue."     *
    *                      if the installed WebSphere              *
    *                      Application Server is running.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    WebSphere Application Server offering has a bundle to detect
    whether or not WebSphere Application Server is running. It
    will block the Installation if running processes are detected.
    However, when Installation Manager creates a response file
    (that is, using -skipInstall), it actually does not install
    content of WebSphere Application Server. Therefore, it is not
    necessary to check whether or not WebSphere Application
    Server is running.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix is to skip the detect running process bundle if
    -skipInstall is used.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.14, 8.5.5.12 and 9.0.0.4.  Please refer to the
