SBMJOB CMD(QSH CMD('umask 022;/QIBM/ProdData/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl install -repositories /WASFixpack,<iFixDirectory>/ -installationDirectory  <installationDirectory> -acceptLicense -showProgress')) JOB(WASINSTALL) JOBD(*USRPRF) JOBQ(QSYSNOMAX) ALWMLTTHD(*YES)

<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/


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


Option 1 to select a job.

Option 4 to work with spool files.
