Resolving The Problem

1.

Download the IBM WebSphere Liberty iFix, 18.0.0.3-WS-WLP-i5OSPPC-IFPH03040.zip, from IBM Support Fix Central.

18.0.0.3-WS-WLP-i5OSPPC-IFPH03040.zip

2.

Download the 18.0.0.3 WebSphere Liberty Fix Pack from IBM Fix Central and restore the repository to your IBM i IFS.

18.0.0.3 - Liberty Web Enablement for IBM i

You can use the following document for detailed information on how to download and restore the 18.0.0.3 WebSphere Liberty Fix Pack for the IBM i OS.  https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1021349

3. Sign into a 5250 client session using an IBM i user profile with *SECADM and *ALLOBJ explicit special authorities.
4. Display the current value of QALWOBJRST and then change it to *ALL if needed.

  • Execute the following CL command to display the current value of QALWOBJRST:
    DSPSYSVAL SYSVAL(QALWOBJRST)
    If the current value is NOT *ALL, record the current value (so that you remember what to change it back to) and then change the value to *ALL using the following CL command:
    CHGSYSVAL SYSVAL(QALWOBJRST) VALUE(*ALL)
5. Execute the STRHOSTSVR *ALL CL command to ensure all of the IBM i Host Servers are started.
6.

Execute the following commands to install the 18.0.0.3 WebSphere Liberty Fix Pack and additional iFix together at the same time to resolve the known 18.0.0.3 fix pack installation failure using the IBM Installation Manager.

SBMJOB CMD(QSH CMD('umask 022;/QIBM/ProdData/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl install com.ibm.websphere.liberty.WEBENAB 18.0.0.3-WS-WLP-i5OSPPC-IFPH03040 -repositories /WASFixpack,<iFixDirectory>/18.0.0.3-WS-WLP-i5OSPPC-IFPH03040.zip -installationDirectory  <installationDirectory> -acceptLicense -showProgress')) JOB(WASINSTALL) JOBD(*USRPRF) JOBQ(QSYSNOMAX) ALWMLTTHD(*YES)


Where:
<installationDirectory>: The Websphere Liberty Server installation directory, eg: /QIBM/ProdData/WebSphere/Liberty/Express or /QIBM/ProdData/WebSphere/Liberty/V85/Express

<iFixDirectory>: Is the directory where you downloaded the iFix zip file, eg: /tmp/18.0.0.3-WS-WLP-i5OSPPC-IFPH03040.zip

6.

Review the QPRINT spool file produced in the WASINSTALL job you submitted to verify the install process was successful.

WRKJOB WASINSTALL

Option 1 to select a job.

Option 4 to work with spool files.

Option 5 on the QPRINT spool file to display its contents.

The QPRINT file should indicate a successful installation.

If you experience errors on the command, verify your command syntax as well as your repository IFS paths specified on the -repositories option are correct.  /WASFixpack contains the expanded zip file data for the 18.0.0.3 fix pack, and the 2nd IFS path is the absolute path to the iFix zip file, 18.0.0.3-WS-WLP-i5OSPPC-IFPH03040.zip.

If you continue to experience issues accessing the IBM Web Administration for i console, please open a Service Request (PMR) with IBM here or call 1-800-IBM-SERV.
