10. If you want to upgrade additional installations, repeat the steps, or return to step 4 for installations using the same Installation Manager.

11. For each installation that you have upgraded, make sure that you run the server start pfsserver --clean command when restarting your server for the first time.

Upgrading an installation silently using the command line (imcl)

Installation Manager offers a command-line interface to update your product installation silently. These steps upgrade one installation of Process Federation Server.

1. Gather the following information about your environment and the cumulative fix you want to apply.

IM_INSTALL_LOCATION
The location where Installation Manager is installed. See table 7 in Installation directories for the product and profile for more information about Installation Manager default installation directories.

INSTALL_DIR
The full path to the installation directory of the product you are upgrading.

REPOSITORY
The full directory path to the unpacked cumulative fix repository associated with the cumulative fix package that you are applying.

LOG_FILE
A full path and name for a log file to capture the logging output of the command.

FIX_PACKAGE
com.ibm.bpm.pfs.v85



2. Using the information gathered in the previous step, run the imcl command from the tools directory under the Installation Manager installation location. For more information, see Installing packages by using imcl commands.


IM_INSTALL_LOCATION/eclipse/tools/imcl install FIX_PACKAGE -acceptLicense -installationDirectory INSTALL_DIR -repositories REPOSITORY -log LOG_FILE


By including the -acceptLicense parameter, you agree to the terms and licenses of this product.


The following command is an example of upgrading Process Federation Server on Windows:
C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Installation Manager\eclipse\tools\imcl install com.ibm.bpm.pfs.v85 -acceptLicense -installationDirectory C:\IBM\PFS\v8.5 -repositories C:\PFS857CF201609_repository -log silent_update.txt




3. When the silent installation completes, check the log files to ensure that the installation completed successfully. A success message that is similar to the following text displays on the command line for each package that was installed:
Updated to com.ibm.bpm.pfs.v85_
8.5.7000.20160928_1119 in the C:\IBM\BPM\v8.5 directory

4. Repeat the process for each installation in the environment.

5. For each installation that you have upgraded, make sure that you run the server start pfsserver --clean command when restarting your server for the first time.


Rolling back the cumulative fix




You can roll back the cumulative fix by using one of the following options: 
Rolling back the cumulative fix installation interactively 
Rolling back the cumulative fix installation silently using the command line (imcl) 

Note
: The following procedure rolls back only the Process Federation Server installation.



Rolling back the cumulative fix installation interactively

1. Close all programs that were installed by using Installation Manager.

2. Start Installation Manager. For information about where Installation Manager is installed, see Installation directories for the product and profile,

3. From the Start page of the Installation Manager, click Roll back to start the Roll back packages wizard.

4. On the Roll Back Packages page, from the Package Group Name list, select the package group that contains the packages that you want to roll back and click Next.

5. Select the version of the package that you want to roll back to and click Next

6. Read the summary information and click Roll Back to roll back the package. 

When the rollback process completes, a message that confirms the success of the process is displayed near the top of the page. 



7. Optional: Click View log file to open the log file for the current session in a new window. 

8. Click Finish to close the wizard. 

9. Close Installation Manager. 

10. Repeat the process for each installation in the environment.

11. For each installation that you have rolled back, make sure that you run the server start pfsserver --clean command when restarting your server for the first time.


Rolling back the cumulative fix installation silently using the command line (imcl)

Installation Manager offers a command-line interface to silently roll back your product installation to the previous version.

1. Gather the following information about your environment and the target version you want to roll back to.

IM_INSTALL_LOCATION
The location where Installation Manager is installed. See table 7 in Installation directories for the product and profile for more information about Installation Manager default installation directories.

INSTALL_DIR
The full path to the installation directory of the product that you upgraded.

LOG_FILE
A full path and name for a log file to capture the logging output of the command.
PACKAGE_VERSION_IDS
The package and version IDs for the target version you want to roll back to. You will need the package ID followed by an underscore and the specific version ID. If you are rolling back multiple packages in the installation, separate each package and version ID with a space. If you supply only the package ID, the package is rolled back to the most recent previous version.

REPOSITORIES
Optionally, you might need to supply the fix repositories for the target of the rollback if you did not use the option to save files for rollback and do not have access to the live repository. Download and unpack the fix repositories for the target version. Gather the full directory path to your unpacked repositories associated with each fix package that you are applying. If you are rolling back multiple products, separate the repository directory paths with commas.



2. Using the information gathered in the previous step, run the imcl command to rollback to the previous target version of a product in the installation.


IM_INSTALL_LOCATION
/eclipse/tools/imcl rollback PACKAGE_VERSION_IDS -installationDirectory INSTALL_DIR -log LOG_FILE


If you need to include local repositories for the target version, add the -repositories REPOSITORIES option.



3. When the rollback completes, check the log files to ensure that the rollback completed successfully. A success message displays on the command line:

Rolled back to com.ibm.bpm.pfs.v8.5.7000.20160301_1551 in the C:\IBM\BPM\v8.5 directory. 

4. Repeat the process for each installation in the environment.

5. For each installation that you have rolled back, make sure that you run the server start pfsserver --clean command when restarting your server for the first time.
