Multiple Maximo 7.1 Environments on One Administrative Machine

Question & Answer


Multiple Maximo environments can be installed on one administrative machine with the latest Maximo 7.1 installer that was refreshed in February 2010.


To install multiple Maximo 7.1 environments on 1 administrative machine you have to use the current installer package (released February 2010).

Installations for each environment will be done by local users, not administrators. If an administrator installed IBM middleware components (WebSphere, DB2, TDS) and/or a Maximo environment on the machine then only 1 Maximo environment can be installed. When an administrator installs a component a global deployment engine (DE) is created. Installations done by a local user will create a local DE for that user. Different users will install each environment on the machine.

Refer to the Maximo 7.1 installation guide for more information. Also see document 1421640 (see link below) for updated information on the process.
