IBM Business Process Manager 8.5.5 - An Installation in Many Parts

As part of a process to rebuild some of our environments, I wanted to script the process of installing the very latest version of IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.5, plus the most recent crop of iFixes.

and, at time of writing, includes 56 iFixes, with two from the past week - January 30 and February 2.

I've got all of the iFixes extracted in /tmp/Repo/BPM855/Fixes, alongside the WAS, IHS, Plugin and BPM binaries ( and the WAS 8.5.5.4 fix pack ).

This response file includes the whole enchilada: -

I already had IBM Installation Manager 1.8.1 installed, which is why the response file doesn't specifically reference IIM.

Note 1

Some of the iFixes have been superseded by others; specifically, one sees messages such as: -

   ERROR: Selected fixes contain each other and cannot be installed together. Fix 8.5.5.0-WS-BPM-IFJR50671 is contained by fix 8.5.5.0-WS-BPM-IFJR52313.

JR50671 is contained by JR52313.
JR51202 is contained by JR51545
JR50760 is contained by JR51503
JR50871 is contained by JR50488

Note 2

I unpacked the iFixes using a FOR loop: -

for i in *.zip; do unzip $i -d `echo /tmp/Repo/BPM855/Fixes/$i | sed 's/.zip//g'`; done

Note 3

I have experimented with using a FOR loop to actually install the iFixes: -

for i in *; do /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl install $i -repositories ./$i -installationDirectory /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/; done

but I chose to use a response file to ensure that I didn't miss owt.

Note 4

As per a previous blog post: -


I did have to work hard to unpack the 8.5.5.0-WS-BPM-SnapshotManagement-November.13.2014.iFixes package, as it requires unrar despite being a .ZIP file :-)

The job, as they say, is a good 'un
