Update Installer for WebSphere Application Server V6.1 and V6.0.2.21 (onward)

Download


Abstract

You can use the Update Installer V6.1.0.19 to install maintenance and updates for both IBM® WebSphere® Application Server V6.1 and V6.0.2.21 onwards with some exceptions.

Download Description

In order to enhance usability and provide a smaller tooling footprint, there is a new strategy for the Update Installer that eliminates the need to install multiple instances of the tool. A single instance of the V6.1 Update Installer can now apply maintenance to all WebSphere Application Server V6.1.0 (any fix level) and any newer maintenance from WebSphere Application Server V6.0.2.21 onward.

See the Supported platforms table for information on Update Installer V6.1 compatibility with WebSphere Application Server V6.0.2 platforms.

Features

The Update Installer V6.1.0.19 has the following functionality:

  • A GUI and a command-line Update Installer

  • Installation and removal of individual and/or multiple code updates

  • Logging, recovery features and prerequisite handling
  • Compatibility with previous releases in certain cases

Readme

To install maintenance through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or through a command line interface, follow the instructions that are included in the Installation instructions section of this document or in the Readme file, which is available in the install directory:

  • <updateInstall_home>/docs/readme_updateinstaller.html

  • <updateInstall_home>/docs/readme_updateinstaller.pdf


Supported platforms for Update Installer V6.1.0 (any fix level) and V6.0.2 (any fix level) release
The V6.1 Update Installer works with most V6.0.2 platforms except where noted in this table of V6.0.2 platforms. There are no changes to the supported platforms with the Update Installer shipped within the same version. For example, the V6.1 Update Installer will work with any supported platform with V6.1 release. Similarly, the V6.0.2 Update Installer will work with any supported platform with V6.0.2 release.

      Update Installer for WebSphere Application Server V6.1 releases
      =====================================Suggestions==============================
      Important Notice for Users of WebSphere Application Server V6.0.2.21 and later releases:
      The requirement to use the same Update Installer (V6.1.0.11) for V6.0.2 release was introduced starting with Fix Pack 21 (6.0.2.21) and onwards. Starting with Fix Pack 6.0.2.21, Update Installer is no longer packaged with the Fix Pack itself. So Updated Installer V6.1.0.11 (or later) must be used to install Fix Pack 21 and later releases.

      Important Notice for Users of WebSphere Application Server V6.0.2.21 and later releases:

Starting with Fix Pack 6.0.2.21, the Update Installer is no longer packaged with the Fix Pack itself. You must now use Updated Installer V6.1.0.11 (or later) to install Fix Pack 21(6.0.2.21) and later releases. This Update Installer must also be used for all V6.1 Fix Pack installations.
