Problems installing IBM Integration Designer - I *MUST* read my own blog

I was trying to install IBM Integration Designer 8.5.5 via a response file, and kept finding that the installation failed to complete, and that DB2 Express ( part of the IID WebSphere Test Environment - WTEt ) failed to install.

I broke the installation down into its component parts, and tried to simply install DB2: -

"c:\IBM\Installation Manager\eclipse\tools\imcl.exe" -input z:\tmp\iid856\installDB2_WIN64.rsp -acceptLicense

This explicitly failed: -

ERROR: Error preparing IBM® DB2 Express 64 bit
  CRIMC1029E ERROR: Adding plug-in com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000 to repository C:\ProgramData\IBM\Installation Manager\bundles failed.
    CRIMC1085E ERROR: Resumable download failed for: z:\tmp\IID856\WTE_Disk\repository\DB2_64\plugins\com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar.
      ERROR: 'plug-in com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000' does not exist (at z:\tmp\IID856\WTE_Disk\repository\DB2_64\plugins\com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar).

      java.io.FileNotFoundException: z:\tmp\IID856\WTE_Disk\repository\DB2_64\plugins\com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar (The systemcannot find the file specified)

I found this blog post: -


from early 2013.

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 applied the same solution as before - re-extract the ZIP files that comprise the WTE: -

unzip /Volumes/DaveHaySSD/Software/IID856/IID_V856_UTE_1_of_4_Windows.zip 
unzip /Volumes/DaveHaySSD/Software/IID856/IID_V856_UTE_2_of_4_Windows.zip 
unzip /Volumes/DaveHaySSD/Software/IID856/IID_V856_UTE_3_of_4_Windows.zip 
unzip /Volumes/DaveHaySSD/Software/IID856/IID_V856_UTE_4_of_4_Windows.zip 


and also checked for the missing file: -

com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar

in the old expanded WTE: -

find /tmp/iid856.old/WTE_Disk/ | grep -i com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar

/tmp/iid856.old/WTE_Disk//repository/WAS/plugins/com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar

find /tmp/iid856/WTE_Disk/ | grep -i com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar

/tmp/iid856/WTE_Disk//repository/BPM/plugins/com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar
/tmp/iid856/WTE_Disk//repository/COGNOS_64/plugins/com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar
/tmp/iid856/WTE_Disk//repository/DB2_64/plugins/com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar
/tmp/iid856/WTE_Disk//repository/WAS/plugins/com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar
/tmp/iid856/WTE_Disk//repository/WBM/plugins/com.ibm.ws.detect.running.process.v80_8.5.0.20130823_0000.jar

See the difference ?

Right, now for the installation ….
