Installing the WebSphere Portal 6.0.0.1 fixpack on i5/OS ( System i aka iSeries aka AS/400 )

As with all things, this worked for me - that doesn't mean that it'll work for you. If in doubt, please follow the Information Centre resources at: -

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wpdoc/v6r0/topic/com.ibm.wp.ent.doc/wpf/pui_install6001.html

Caveat emptor

Preparation

- Ensure that Portal server is stopped
- Download the latest Portal Update Installer, and expand it into the /QIBM/ProdData/PortalServer/V6/update directory
- Place WP_PTF_6001.jar within the /QIBM/ProdData/PortalServer/V6/update/fixes subdirectory
- Set PortalAdminPwd property in /QIBM/UserData/WebSphere/AppServer/V6/Base/profiles/wp_profile1/PortalServer/config/wpconfig.properties

Notes

Installation

- Start QSHell
- Export the WAS_PROD_HOME directory: -

export WAS_PROD_HOME=/QIBM/ProdData/WebSphere/AppServer/V6/Base

- Change to /QIBM/UserData/WebSphere/AppServer/V6/Base/profiles/wp_profile1/PortalServer/update
- Run the following command: -

updatePortal.sh -installDir /QIBM/UserData/WebSphere/AppServer/V6/Base/profiles/wp_profile1/PortalServer -fixpack -install -fixpackDir /QIBM/UserData/WebSphere/AppServer/V6/Base/profiles/wp_profile1/PortalServer/update/fixes -fixpackID WP_PTF_6001

- If you see "Result: BUILD SUCCESSFUL" then job done - took 153 minutes 43 seconds on an i520 with 12 GB memory !!

- Check and, if needed, follow steps for post-fix pack installation here: -
