Content

Follow these steps after you download the required version of IBM Java Runtime for your operating system from Fix Central:


1. On the master server, log in as the Content Analytics administrator.
2. Change to the ES_INSTALL_ROOT/bin directory and enter the command "esadmin stop" to stop the system.
3. Enter the command "stopccl" (stopccl.sh on UNIX platforms) to stop the Common Communication Layer.
4. Change to the ES_INSTALL_ROOT/ibm_help directory and enter the command "IC_end.bat" (./IC_end.sh on UNIX platforms) to stop the information center.
5. Rename the following directories (e.g. _jvm.orig).
    On AIX and Linux (including Linux on System z):
      $ES_INSTALL_ROOT/_jvm
      $ES_INSTALL_ROOT/_jvm64
    On Windows:
      %ES_INSTALL_ROOT%\_jvm
      %ES_INSTALL_ROOT%\_jvm64
6. Create empty directories, _jvm and _jvm64, at the same locations.
7. Copy the files that you extracted from the 32-bit (or 31-bit, if you use Linux on System z) and 64-bit JRE packages to the _jvm and _jvm64 directories, respectively.
8. On UNIX systems, enter the command "ls -la" to see whether the read/write/execute privileges and ownership settings for the new _jvm and _jvm64 files match the settings for the original directories. If they do not match, run the chown command to change the settings. In these examples, "esadmin" is the Content Analytics administrator ID and "staff" is the primary group assigned to the Content Analytics administrator ID:
      chown -R esadmin:staff ES_INSTALL_DIR/_jvm
      chown -R esadmin:staff ES_INSTALL_DIR/_jvm64
9. For a multiple server installation, run steps 3 - 8 on all servers.
10. On all servers, log in as the Content Analytics administrator, change to the ES_INSTALL_ROOT/bin directory, and enter the command "startccl" (startccl.sh on UNIX platforms) to start the Common Communication Layer.
11. On the master server, enter the command "esadmin system startall" to start the IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search system.


Agent for Windows File Systems


If you installed the Agent for Windows File Systems, follow these steps to update IBM Java Runtime on the agent server:

1. On the agent server, change to the ES_AGENT_INSTALL_ROOT\bin directory and enter the command "esagent stop" to stop the agent server.
2. Rename the following directory (e.g. _jvm.orig):
      %ES_AGENT_INSTALL_ROOT%\_jvm
3. Create an empty directory, _jvm, at the same location.
4. Copy the files that you extracted from the 32-bit JRE package (or 31-bit, if you use Linux on System z) to the _jvm directory.
5. Enter the command "esagent start" to start the agent server.
