Installation instructions



Cumulative fix prerequisites


To use this cumulative fix, you must have Version 8.5.6.0 CF01, Version 8.5.6.0, Version 8.5.5, or Version 8.5.0.x of IBM Business Process Manager Express, IBM Business Process Manager Standard, IBM Business Process Manager Advanced, or IBM Business Process Manager Advanced - Process Server product installed.

Important:


Hardware and software prerequisites for IBM Business Process Manager Express, IBM Business Process Manager Standard, IBM Business Process Manager Advanced, and IBM Business Process Manager Advanced - Process Server are available on the web on their respective Hardware and Software Support pages.


Installing the cumulative fix
To install the cumulative fix, follow these instructions to download the fix pack repositories, choose your installation path, and review the post-installation tasks.


  1. Download the fix pack repositories to a local directory. For more information, see Downloading repositories to the local system. If you are installing the fix pack interactively by using IBM Installation Manager to connect to the live repository, this step is not required.

  2. Choose one of the installation paths based on your environment.
    1. If you have profiles, follow the instructions based on your current version:
      • If you are upgrading from IBM Business Process Manager V8.5.6.0 CF01 or V8.5.6.0, complete the steps in Upgrading profiles from V8.5.6.x.
      • If you are upgrading from IBM Business Process Manager V8.5.0.x or V8.5.5, complete the steps in Upgrading profiles from V8.5.0.x or V8.5.5.
      • If you are migrating from a version earlier than IBM Business Process Manager V8.5.0.x, use Installation Manager to install the cumulative fix, but do not create profiles or a deployment environment. After installing the cumulative fix, follow the migration instructions to migrate your earlier version.


        Note: To continually run production applications during the upgrade and regression test period, you can roll out maintenance incrementally in an IBM Business Process Manager installation that consists of a Process Center and multiple Process Servers. See Performing a rolling upgrade in the product documentation.

    2. If you install IBM BPM V8.5.6.0 CF02 in a new environment, include the cumulative fix with the V8.5.6.0 repository while installing the product. For more information, see the Interactive Installation and Configuration Guide.
      Note: If you are using the launchpad to install and you have Internet access, you can include CF02 from the live repository during installation. Otherwise, you must install the upgrades from a local directory. For example, if you are doing a typical installation on windows, you could add fixpack.BPM_CF=local_repository_path to bpm_updates.properties to include the cumulative fix, as described in step 1 of Installing and configuring Process Center in the product documentation.

    3. If you installed V8.5.6.x, V8.5.5, or V8.5.0.x but you have not yet created a profile, choose one of the following options to update the product:
      Upgrading an installation interactively
      Upgrading an installation silently using the command line (imcl)

  3. Review the optional post-installation task information for additional actions you might need to take.

If you selected to install with Java 6 only, you might see a warning "Returning with return code: INSTCONFPARTIALSUCCESS" and there might be an iscdeploy command error in the log.
You can fix the error by running the following command:
On Windows: install_root\bin\iscdeploy
On Linux or UNIX: install_root/bin/iscdeploy.sh

Your IBM Business Process Manager installations are now updated to V8.5.6.2.

You will still see "8.5.6.0" in the versionInfo command output, the SystemOut.log header, and the administrative console Welcome screen. For information about determining the installed version, see Product version and history information.



Downloading the repositories to the local system

Download the cumulative fix repositories to a local directory so that they can be used with Installation Manager during the upgrade process.
Notes:
  • If you are installing interactively by using Installation Manager to make the updates and you have Internet access, these steps are not needed. You can download the required WebSphere Application Server fix pack and IBM BPM cumulative fix from the live repository.
  • New installations require the IBM BPM V8.5.6 installation media, as noted in the IBM Knowledge Center for IBM BPM.

  1. Download the appropriate fix repository by following the Downloading the cumulative fix 2 document. Download bpm.8560.cf2.delta.repository.1.zip and bpm.8560.cf2.delta.repository.2.zip to a temporary disk location.

  2. If you are upgrading from a version earlier than V8.5.6, download the appropriate refresh pack using the Version 8.5 Refresh Pack 6 for the IBM Business Process Manager products document. Download bpm.8560.delta.repository.1.zip and bpm.8560.delta.repository.2.zip to a temporary disk location.

  3. Unpack the repository files to any directory that you choose. The files must be unpacked to the same location. Note the location where you have unpacked the files.

  4. You must have WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5, Fix Pack 5 or later installed or you must install it during the upgrade process. If you want to upgrade the WebSphere Application Server fix pack, download the applicable version for your environment.
    For example, download 8.5.5-WS-WAS-FP0000005-part1.zip and 8.5.5-WS-WAS-FP0000005-part2.zip for WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5.5.
    For information about the fixes and download links, see Fix list for IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.5.

  5. Download any required interim fixes from IBM Fix Central that are specific to IBM BPM V8.5.6.2. Select your installation type and V8.5.6.2 to search for recommended fixes on this site.
    Note: Applying this cumulative fix will remove any previously installed interim fixes. If a fix is included in the cumulative fix, then you do not have to reinstall the interim fix.

  6. Extract each set of fixpack or IFix repository zip files to its own local directory, although a common staging directory can be used. For example, staging_directory\BPMfixpack, staging_directory\refreshpack, or staging_directory\IFix1.
    Note: If a fix pack or refresh pack repository consists of multiple .zip files, ensure that they are all extracted to the same root directory. Choose to overwrite duplicate directories so that the files from both the .zip files are merged.
    For example, extract the two bpm.8560.cf2.delta.repository files to staging_directory\BPM856CF2, the two 8.5.5-WS-WAS-FP0000005 files to staging_directory\WAS8555, and each additional fix to its own directory in a similar fashion.

  7. Return to the installation instructions and continue with the appropriate steps based on your existing setup.
