Installing IBM Maximo Enterprise Adapter for SAP 7.5.0.1 for IBM Maximo Asset Management v7.6

Question & Answer


Question

How do I install IBM Maximo Enterprise Adapter for SAP 7.5.0.1 for IBM Maximo Asset Management v7.6?

Answer

Maximo Asset Management 7.6 introduces new tools for deploying solutions in
your environment. Use this procedure to install IBM Maximo Enterprise Adapter
for SAP 7.5.0.1 into your existing Maximo Asset Management 7.6 environment.

If you plan to install IBM Maximo Enterprise Adapter for SAP 7.5.0.1 on Linux, you must also apply interim fix 001.

1. Log on to the Maximo Asset Management 7.6 administrative workstation.
Download and uncompress the IBM Maximo Enterprise Adapter for SAP 7.5
package.

2. Create a backup image of your Maximo Asset Management 7.6 administrative
workstation. When you install version 7.5 industry solutions in Maximo Asset
Management 7.6, you do not have an automated uninstallation method that
returns the system to its previous state.

3. Start the process solution installation program by changing to the
install_home\bin directory of your Maximo Asset Management 7.6 installation
and use the solutionInstaller command.

Windows
solutioninstaller.bat -pkgpath path_to_industry_solution_package -nl lang
-license accept

Linux
./solutioninstaller.sh -pkgpath path_to_industry_solution_package -nl lang
-license accept

The -pkgpath option specifies the path to the industry solution package.
Replace path_to_industry_solution_package with the path to the industry solution
package file you are installing. The -license option is used to accept license
terms. The -nl option is used to select a language for the installation. For
example,

Windows
solutioninstaller.bat -pkgpath
C:\TEMP\MEA_SAP_Appl_V750\SAP75.zip
-nl en -license accept

Linux
./solutioninstaller.sh -pkgpath
/tmp/MEA_SAP_Appl_V750/SAP75.zip
-nl en -license accept

4. After the IBM Maximo Enterprise Adapter for SAP 7.5 files have been
successfully copied to the system, download the IBM Maximo Enterprise
Adapter for SAP 7.5.01 fix pack and install it using the same process you used
to install IBM Maximo Enterprise Adapter for SAP 7.5 files. Optionally, if you are
installing on a Linux administrative workstation, you must apply interim fix 001.

5. After the fix pack has been applied, from the applications\maximo\meaweb\
webmodule\WEB-INF directory, open the web.xml file and add the following entry
to the content of <web-app>:

<!-- Service Identifier class for SAP Adapter -->
<env-entry>
<description>Service Identifier class for SAP Adapter</description>
<env-entry-name>SRVICEIDENTIFIERCLASS</env-entry-name>
<env-entry-type>java.lang.String</env-entry-type>
<env-entry-value>psdi.iface.servlet.SAPServiceIdentifier</env-entry-value>
</env-entry>

6. Save the file.

7. Open the Maximo Asset Management 7.6 launchpad and start the Maximo
Asset Management 7.6 configuration tool.

8. Select the Update Database and Build and Deploy Application EAR Files
operation. When this operation is complete, the database is updated and
application EAR files are rebuilt and optionally redeployed on the application
server.
