Using IBM Installation Manager to report on what's available to install

Following on from an earlier post: -


here's another potentially useful IBM Installation Manager (IIM) command.

This allows one to query an installation repository ( either created using Packaging Utility or by the expansion of a set of images downloaded from Passport Advantage etc. ) and report on the versions of software available.

Here's an example for IBM Business Process Manager 8.0.1: -

$ /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl -silent -nosplash listAvailablePackages -repositories /mnt/hgfs/DaveHay/BPM/install/repository/repos_64bit/

com.ibm.bpm.ADV.V80_8.0.1000.20121102_2136
com.ibm.websphere.ND.v80_8.0.3.20120320_0536
com.ibm.ws.DB2EXP97.linuxia64_9.7.3.20120504_0255

and here's an example for the WebSphere Application Server 8.0 Supplements: -

/opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl -silent -nosplash listAvailablePackages -repositories /mnt/hgfs/DaveHay/BPM/supplements/

com.ibm.websphere.APPCLIENT.v80_8.0.0.20110503_0200
com.ibm.websphere.IHS.v80_8.0.0.20110503_0200
com.ibm.websphere.PLG.v80_8.0.0.20110503_0200
com.ibm.websphere.PLUGCLIENT.v80_8.0.0.20110503_0200
com.ibm.websphere.WCT.v80_8.0.0.20110503_0200


and here's one for the WebSphere Application Server 8.0.0.5 fix packs: -

$ /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl -silent -nosplash listAvailablePackages -repositories /mnt/hgfs/DaveHay/BPM/fixes/Base/

com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902
com.ibm.websphere.BASETRIAL.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902

com.ibm.websphere.EXPRESS.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902

com.ibm.websphere.NDDMZ.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902
com.ibm.websphere.NDDMZTRIAL.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902
com.ibm.websphere.NDTRIAL.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902

$ /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl -silent -nosplash listAvailablePackages -repositories /mnt/hgfs/DaveHay/BPM/fixes/Supp/

com.ibm.websphere.APPCLIENT.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902
com.ibm.websphere.APPCLIENTILAN.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902
com.ibm.websphere.IHS.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902
com.ibm.websphere.IHSILAN.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902
com.ibm.websphere.PLG.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902
com.ibm.websphere.PLGILAN.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902
com.ibm.websphere.PLUGCLIENT.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902
com.ibm.websphere.PLUGCLIENTILAN.v80_8.0.5.20121022_1902


In the latter two examples, I downloaded the WAS 8.0.0.5 fix packs: -

-rw-r--r--@  1 hayd  staff  1377925961  4 Jan 23:10 8.0.0-WS-WAS-FP0000005-part1.zip
-rw-r--r--@  1 hayd  staff  1113282861  4 Jan 20:59 8.0.0-WS-WAS-FP0000005-part2.zip
-rw-r--r--@  1 hayd  staff  1089748410  4 Jan 22:58 8.0.0-WS-WASSupplements-FP0000005-part1.zip
-rw-r--r--@  1 hayd  staff  1495994292  4 Jan 19:44 8.0.0-WS-WASSupplements-FP0000005-part2.zip


and expanded them into Base and Supp subdirectories on my USB drive.
