Installation Instructions

Before you begin

Copy the IMS Server installation folder to a backup directory.


Installing the fix pack automatically

You can install the fix pack automatically if the IMS Server is already installed and deployed in the WebSphere Application Server. This procedure is applicable for WebSphere Application Server Version 7.0 only.



Ensure that you have a copy of 8.2.1-ISS-SAMESSO-IMS-FP0007.zip file. Ensure that the following servers are installed and running:
  • WebSphere Application Server Version 7.0
  • IBM HTTP Server

Note: Do not remap the ISAMESSOIMSConfig module, or you will not access the IMS Configuration Wizard or IMS Configuration Utility.

Procedure

1. Download the 8.2.1-ISS-SAMESSO-IMS-FP0007.zip file from Fix Central.

2. Extract the contents of the 8.2.1-ISS-SAMESSO-IMS-FP0007.zip file onto your local computer.

3. Extract the etc-ISS-SAMESSO-8.2.1.zip file into your selected directory.

4. Copy the extracted etc folder into the root of the <IMS Server installation directory>. For example: C:\Program Files\IBM\ISAM ESSO\IMS Server\etc

5. From the <IMS Server installation directory>\etc\ folder, open the tamesso.ims.appserver.properties file with a text editor and edit the values of the following variables:


was.hostname=was_hostname
was.connector.port=was_connector_port
was.security.enabled=true
was.admin.user.id=was_admin_id
was.admin.user.pwd=was_admin_pw
was.truststore.file=truststore_file
was.truststore.pwd=truststore_pwd
was.keystore.file=
was.keystore.pwd=

a. Replace was_hostname with the name of your computer.

b. Replace was_connector_port with the SOAP connector port. For example: 8880.


You can retrieve the SOAP connector port value from: C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\<profile_name>\logs\AboutThisProfile.txt

Note: If you use WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, <profile_name> is the deployment manager profile name.

c. Complete one of the following tasks:

  • If WebSphere Application Server security is enabled, replace was_admin_id and was_admin_pw with your WebSphere Application Server user name and password.
  • If WebSphere Application Server security is not enabled, set the value of was.security.enabled to false.

d. Set the truststore_file and truststore_pwd.


Note: Use any of these valid formats when you specify the path for the truststore file:
  • C:/.../...
  • C:\\...\\...

truststore_file
Replace truststore_file with the path where the truststore file is located.
Follow the format in the tamesso.ims.appserver.properties file.
  • For WebSphere Application Server stand-alone:
C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\<profile_name>\config\cells\<cell_name>\nodes\<node_name>\trust.p12

C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\Profiles\Dmgr01\config\cells\ibm-svr1Cell01\trust.p12

truststore_pwd


Replace truststore_pwd with your WebSphere Application Server trust store password. The default password for WebSphere Application Server trust store is WebAS.

e. If two-way SSL is enabled, set the was.keystore.file and was.keystore.pwd.


Note: Use any of these valid formats when you specify the path for the keystore file:
  • C:/.../...
  • C:\\...\\...

was.keystore.file
Specify the path where the keystore file is located.

Follow the format indicated in the tamesso.ims.appserver.properties file.
