Installing IBM Maximo Anywhere 7.5.1.1 for IBM Maximo Asset Management 7.6

Question & Answer


Question

As a new IBM Maximo Anywhere user, how do I install version 7.5.1.1 for IBM Maximo Asset Management 7.6?

Answer

Before you begin, ensure that IBM Maximo Asset Management 7.6 is installed and configured.

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

A set of required components must be installed to extend the enterprise system for IBM Maximo Anywhere. The IBM Maximo Anywhere package includes OSLC object structures and licenses that enable a set of applications in IBM Maximo Asset Management.

The IBM Maximo Anywhere 7.5.1 launchpad program cannot be used to install the required components.

To install the required components on the computer where IBM Maximo Asset Management 7.6 is installed, you must complete the manual steps that are described in this document.

Ensure that your environment includes an application server that IBM Worklight supports.

Refer to the system requirements for IBM Maximo Anywhere 7.5.1 and IBM Worklight at:
