WebSphere Portal 8 - NOT Installing as non-root

In this post, I outline an issue that I've seen most recently with WebSphere Portal v8 whilst attempting to install as a non-root user. Thankfully, I also outline the solution - and how I found it through the power of the internet :-)

Despite having got into the (bad) habit of installing IBM software on Linux using the root account, I'm trying ( now that I'm in the WebSphere Services team and should really know better ) to always install as a non-root user, wherever possible.

DB2 UDB appears to one product that prefers to be installed as root, although DB2 operations are always carried out by non-root users such as db2inst1 and db2iadm1.

However, for WebSphere, the easiest solution is to create a non-root user e.g. wasadmin, and then install AND operate as that user.

This is, of course, immensely preferable to customers of all shapes and sizes - as SuSE Linux reminds us, when signing in as root, "With great power comes great responsibility". If you've ever typed rm -Rf * in the WRONG directory, you know PRECISELY what I mean.

So here's the setup - I have a newly minted Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 server, and have prepared for the WebSphere Portal 8 installation as follows: -

Prepare the OS - create group/user, requisite directories, set permissions, increase file handles etc.

$ sh prepare_remote_target.sh

#!/bin/sh
# Create the group and user
groupadd wasadmins
useradd -g wasadmins -d /home/wasadmin wasadmin
passwd wasadmin

# Create the top-level IBM directory
mkdir /opt/IBM

# Set permissions for the wasadmins group etc.
chmod -R g+wr /opt/IBM/
chgrp -R wasadmins /opt/IBM/

# Increase the number of available open files - ulimit -n
echo "* hard nofile 8800" >> /etc/security/limits.conf
echo "* soft nofile 8800" >> /etc/security/limits.conf

# Set the default umask
umask 022

<CAVEAT>

 This is MY basic preparation script - your mileage may vary - please refer to the formal IBM documentation, including: -

Unpack WebSphere Portal Server v8

Note that I'm using Server rather than Enable/Express/Extend

which, at first glance, looks OK .... until you note that the ConfigEngine directory is missing the Write flag - which goes to explain errors such as this: -

Thankfully, there IS a solution - there's an iFix, PM64484, available from IBM Fix Central that resolves the problem.

I found reference to the iFix here: -


...
• For installing as non-root, apply PM64484
..

Once downloaded ( as an 827 MB ZIP file 8.0.0.0-WP-IFPM64484.zip ), it's a simple matter to place the file in the same IIM repository as Portal itself, amend the response file to reflect it, and c'est voila, the installation proceeds apace.

This is what I now have in my repository: -

$ ls -alh /mnt/hgfs/WP8/
