Deploying IBM Business Automation Workflow 18.0.0.1

Another aide memoire for me, et al , as I know I'll need this again before too long ….

Environment

VMware Fusion ( macOS 10 )

50 GB disk ( allocated to / file-system )
8 GB RAM
4 cores

Hostname

workflow.uk.ibm.com

Disable/Stop Firewall

systemctl disable firewalld
systemctl stop firewalld


Disable SELinux

sed -i'' 's/SELINUX\=enforcing/SELINUX\=disabled/g' /etc/selinux/config

Set Ulimits etc.

vi /etc/security/limits.d/20-nproc.conf

# - nofile - max number of open files
wasadmin   soft    nofile  65536
wasadmin   hard    nofile  65536

# - nproc - max number of processes
wasadmin   soft    nproc   16384
wasadmin   hard    nproc   16384


vi /etc/security/limits.conf

* hard nofile 10240
* soft nofile 10240


vi /etc/sysctl.conf

fs.file-max = 524288

Create Groups and Users

groupadd db2iadm1
useradd -g db2iadm1 -d /home/db2inst1 db2inst1
echo "passw0rd" | passwd db2inst1 --stdin

groupadd db2users
useradd -g db2users -d /home/db2user1 db2user1
echo "passw0rd" | passwd db2user1 --stdin

groupadd db2fadm1
useradd -g db2fadm1 -d /home/db2fenc1 db2fenc1
echo "passw0rd" | passwd db2fenc1 --stdin

groupadd dasadm1
useradd -g dasadm1 -d /home/dasusr1 dasusr1
echo "passw0rd" | passwd dasusr1 --stdin

groupadd wasadmins
useradd -g wasadmins -d /home/wasadmin wasadmin
echo "passw0rd" | passwd wasadmin --stdin


Create File Systems

mkdir /opt/ibm
mkdir /opt/ibm/InstallationManager
mkdir /opt/ibm/IMShared
mkdir /opt/ibm/WebSphere
mkdir /opt/ibm/HTTPServer


chown -R wasadmin:wasadmins /opt/ibm/InstallationManager
chown -R wasadmin:wasadmins /opt/ibm/IMShared
chown -R wasadmin:wasadmins /opt/ibm/WebSphere
chown -R wasadmin:wasadmins /opt/ibm/HTTPServer


Mount VMware Shared Folder

vmhgfs-fuse -o allow_other .host:/Repo /mnt

Install DB2

/mnt/DB2/Product/server/db2setup -r /mnt/ResponseFiles/db2server111.rsp

Install Fixpack

/mnt/DB2/Fixpack/universal/installFixPack -n -b /opt/ibm/db2/V11.1/

Create DAS

/opt/ibm/db2/V11.1/instance/dascrt -u dasusr1

Create Instance

/opt/ibm/db2/V11.1/instance/db2icrt -a SERVER -u db2fenc1 db2inst1

Setup Services file ( note, need to edit to remove port 50000 )

sed -i'' 's/50000/60006/g' /etc/services

Set Instance to use TCP/IP, autostart etc.

su - db2inst1
db2 update database manager configuration using svcename db2c_db2inst1
db2set DB2COMM=tcpip
db2set DB2AUTOSTART=YES
db2start
exit


Set Instance to Auto Start post-reboot

/opt/ibm/db2/V11.1/bin/db2fm -i db2inst1 -f on

Validate Listener is running

netstat -aon | grep LISTEN | grep 600

...

Did you have to separately install Case Manager or was it part of DAW 18.0.0.1 packega?

Morning Rahul

As far as I am aware, Case Manager was installed as part of the BAW installation. I certainly didn't install any additional components.

The BAW announcement would seem to confirm this: -

...
IBM Business Automation Workflow combines IBM Business Process Manager and IBM Case Manager in one workflow solution.
