Updating IBM Installation Manager via the command-line

So this ties up with a piece of work that a colleague is undertaking on the IBM PureApplication System.

As part of his work, he needs to update IBM Installation Manager (IIM) in place from 1.6.2 to 1.7.2

Here's the process: -

Before

$ /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl listInstalledPackages

com.ibm.cic.agent_1.6.2000.20130301_2248
com.ibm.bpm.ADV.v85_8.5.1.20131107_1830
com.ibm.websphere.ND.v85_8.5.5001.20131018_2242

During

$ /tmp/foobar/userinstc -acceptLicense -dataLocation /home/wasadmin/var/ibm/InstallationManager/

Updated to com.ibm.cic.agent_1.7.2000.20140227_0303 in the /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse directory.

After

$ /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl listInstalledPackages

com.ibm.cic.agent_1.7.2000.20140227_0303
com.ibm.bpm.ADV.v85_8.5.1.20131107_1830
com.ibm.websphere.ND.v85_8.5.5001.20131018_2242

The pre-requisite is that one must have IIM 1.7.2 downloaded from here and unpacked into /tmp/foobar.
