Problems installing IBM Business Process Manager Advanced 8.0.1

So, during my scripted installation of IBM BPM 8.0.1 today, my installation failed with: -

CRIMA1154E ERROR: Error installing.

  CRIMC1029E ERROR:   Adding file to repository /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipsecache failed.

    CRIMC1085E ERROR:     Resumable download failed for: /mnt/hgfs/DaveHay/BPM/fixes/Base/files/

      ERROR:       Encountered 2 times: Failed to retrieve 'file'.

        ERROR:         Downloading '/mnt/hgfs/DaveHay/BPM/fixes/Base/files/' to '/opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipsecache/tmp/cicdip_wasadmin/v/md5/2f4d2cbf07d9b100072fd9b33178ed67_md5~6e854ee99153c8bee3e1322d7ba0c586'.

        ERROR:         Table of contents digests differs from digest of downloaded file.

        ERROR:         'md5' digest values do not match: [2f4d2cbf07d9b100072fd9b33178ed67] (Actual) vs [027451badad73fb376e793f2689f5a1a] (Expected).   

resulting in some of IHS installing, but nothing else.

I'm using a single response file to have IBM Installation Manager 1.6 install IHS, WAS Plugin, WAS and BPM.

I confirmed that my repository was in good order: -

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

before re-reading the error message above.

It looked like there was some problem with the WAS fixes element of the installation.

Reading this IBM Technote: -

appeared to confirm that.

Therefore, I deleted the contents of the appropriate directory: -

$ cd /mnt/hgfs/DaveHay/BPM/fixes/Base
rm -Rf *

and unzipped the WAS Base fix packs again: -

unzip ../../../Software/WAS80FP5/
unzip ../../../Software/WAS80FP5/

This time around, the installation went through without a problem: -

Modified in the /opt/IBM/HTTPServer directory.
Installed to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.
Installed to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.
Installed to the /opt/IBM/HTTPPlugins directory.

( IHS was modified rather than installed because the previous failed installations had already laid down all/some of the required directory structure )
