B: You can navigate to the <extracted_path_JazzFP3> / responsefiles/platform_name directory, make a backup of the update response file, for example, update_jazzsm_fullprofile_response.xml and edit this file to use it for the upgrade.

Open the response file, edit it for the following parameters, and save the file.

Edit the path to the software package repository:

<repository location='/tmp/jsmfp112/JazzSMFPRepository/disk1' temporary="true"/>

Edit the home location for the existing Jazz for Service Management installation:


Edit the temp space path location to extract the files from repository location:



For the administrator password you have to specify the encrypted password that will be generated by running:

  ./imutilsc encryptString password_to_encrypt    from Installation_Manager_Home/eclipse/tools directory.            For the Software packages to apply section only keep the offering elements for the installed integration services components on the machine and delete those   offering elements if the integration services are not installed on the machine.   

Also for DASH add the version parameter within the specification list: version='3.1.3100.20190329-0559'

For example, for DASH only, without Reporting or other features:


Save the response file and run the following command from Installation_Manager_Home/eclipse/tools

./imcl input path_response_file -log path_log_file -acceptLicense



./imcl input /Miha/responsefiles/unix/update_jazzsm_fullprofile_response.xml -log /Miha/dash.log -acceptLicense

[root@fruits1 tools]# ./imcl input /Miha/responsefiles/unix/update_jazzsm_fullprofile_response.xml -log /Miha/dash1.log -acceptLicense
Updated to in the /opt/IBM/JazzSM directory.
