IBM HTTP Server 7.0 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 - not so happy campers

Following my earlier post - Adding a local Yum repository to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 - I hit another road-block on my way to a completed silent installation of IBM HTTP Server 7.0 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2.

The installation mostly completes, but I see: -

$ cat /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/logs/install/log.txt 

...
(01-Jun-2012 19:17:27), Process, com.ibm.ws.install.ni.ismp.installtoolkitbridge.ISMPInstallToolkitBridgeForNIFramework, wrn, Config action failed: SetupAdm - /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/properties/version/nif/config/install/SetupAdm.ant
...
(01-Jun-2012 19:17:28), Process, com.ibm.ws.install.ni.ismp.actions.SetExitCodeAction, msg1, CWUPI0000I: EXITCODE=2
(01-Jun-2012 19:17:28), Process, com.ibm.ws.install.ni.ismp.actions.ISMPLogSuccessMessageAction, msg1, INSTCONFPARTIALSUCCESS
...

When I dig further into the logs: -

gunzip installconfig.log.gz
$ cat installconfig.log | grep -i fail

...
   <message>The exception message is: Execute failed: java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/setupadm" (in directory "/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin"): java.io.IOException: error=2, No such file or directory</message>
 <message>The translated exception message is: Execute failed: java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/setupadm" (in directory "/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin"): java.io.IOException: error=2, No such file or directory</message>
    <message>/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/properties/version/nif/config/install/SetupAdm.ant:198: Execute failed: java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/setupadm" (in directory "/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin"): java.io.IOException: error=2, No such file or directory

...

Hmmmm, looks familiar. What else did I forget to install ?

So I test the failing program: -

$ /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/setupadm 

-bash: /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/setupadm: /bin/ksh: bad interpreter: No such file or directory


Ooops

Time for a quick YUM: -

$ yum install ksh

I re-run: -

/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/setupadm 

and now see: -
