Following the script - installing and using IBM WebSphere Update Installer using a response file ( silent installation )

Following on from my previous post, I'm intending to document all of the steps required to build out an IBM Connections or IBM WebSphere Portal infrastructure, using command line, shell scripts, response files etc.

So here goes the next step, installing the IBM WebSphere Update Installer ( required to patch IBM HTTP Server, WebSphere Plugin, WebSphere Application Server etc. ).

(a) Download the Update Installer - I'm using the current latest version 7.0.0.23 ( as of May 28, 2012 )

IBM Update Installer V7.0.0.23 for WebSphere Software for Linux

(b) Unpack the Update Installer

$ cd /tmp
$ tar xvzf /mnt/Products/Fixes/WAS7/7.0.0.23-WS-UPDI-LinuxAMD64.tar.gz

(c) Amend the response file: -

$ cd /tmp/UpdateInstaller
$ vi responsefile.updiinstaller.txt

-OPT silentInstallLicenseAcceptance="true"
-OPT disableOSPrereqChecking="false"
-OPT installLocation="/opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller"   


(d) Install the Update Installer

$ cd /tmp/UpdateInstaller
$ ./install -options /tmp/UpdateInstaller/responsefile.updiinstaller.txt -silent

(e) Wait a bit - just under two minutes in my case

(f) Check the logs for success

$ cat /opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/logs/install/log.txt

...
(04-Jun-2012 15:20:33), Install, com.ibm.ws.install.ni.ismp.actions.SettleNIFRegistryAction, msg1, Current install/uninstall process is successful. Process type is: install
(04-Jun-2012 15:20:33), Install, com.ibm.ws.install.ni.ismp.actions.SetExitCodeAction, msg1, CWUPI0000I: EXITCODE=0
(04-Jun-2012 15:20:33), Install, com.ibm.ws.install.ni.ismp.actions.ISMPLogSuccessMessageAction, msg1, INSTCONFSUCCESS

...

(g) Prepare the required updates - I'm going to use 7.0.0.19

IBM HTTP Server                 -    7.0.0-WS-IHS-LinuxX64-FP0000019.pak
WebSphere Plugin                -    7.0.0-WS-PLG-LinuxX64-FP0000019.pak
WebSphere Application Server    -    7.0.0-WS-WAS-LinuxX64-FP0000019.pak
WebSphere Java SDK              -    7.0.0-WS-WASSDK-LinuxX64-FP0000019.pak

WebSphere Java SDK ( 32-bit )    -   7.0.0-WS-WASSDK-LinuxX32-FP0000019.pak

$ cd /opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/maintenance/
$ cp /mnt/Products/Fixes/WAS7/*FP0000019.pak .

(h) Set up the response file - this time around I'm just going to install the IHS, Plugin and SDK fix packs for IBM HTTP Server

- This results in two response files; one for IHS, and one for the Plugin
- This is because the two components have different installation paths
- Also note that we're using the 32-bit SDK for IHS and the 64-bit SDK for the Plugin

$ cd /opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/responsefiles
$ vi installIHSFixes.txt

-OPT checkFilePermissions="true"
-W maintenance.package="/opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/maintenance/7.0.0-WS-IHS-LinuxX64-FP0000019.pak;/opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/maintenance/7.0.0-WS-WASSDK-LinuxX32-FP0000019.pak"
-OPT disableNonBlockingPrereqChecking="true"
-W product.location="/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/"
-W update.type="install"


$ vi installPluginFix.txt

-OPT checkFilePermissions="true"
-W maintenance.package="/opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/maintenance/7.0.0-WS-PLG-LinuxX64-FP0000019.pak;/opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/maintenance/7.0.0-WS-WASSDK-LinuxX64-FP0000019.pak"
-OPT disableNonBlockingPrereqChecking="true"
-W product.location="/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/Plugins"
-W update.type="install"


(i) Check the currently installed versions: -

(j) Install the fix packs

IHS / SDK

$ cd /opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller
$ ./update.sh -options /opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/responsefiles/installIHSFixes.txt -silent

Plugin

$ cd /opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller
$ ./update.sh -options /opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/responsefiles/installPluginFix.txt -silent

(k) Wait a while - the two updates took about 4 minutes in total
