Edit the 3.0.1 response file 

Edit the default response file that is provided with the IBM Connections 3.0.1 fix pack.

Before you begin

Add the following parameters to the data key section of the response file:

<data key='user.activities.new.add' value='false'/>

<data key='user.blogs.new.add' value='false'/>

<data key='user.communities.new.add' value='false'/>

<data key='user.dogear.new.add' value='false'/>

<data key='user.files.new.add' value='false'/>

<data key='user.forum.new.add' value='false'/>

<data key='user.mobile.new.add' value='false'/>

<data key='user.moderation.new.add' value='true'/>

<data key='user.profiles.new.add' value='false'/>

<data key='user.wikis.new.add' value='false'/>

To update an IBM Connections 3.0 application to version 3.0.1, set the value to false. If the application is not installed on IBM Connections 3.0 and you want to add it to version 3.0.1, set the value to true.

About this task

To silently install the 3.0.1 fix pack, you usually generate a response file by running the installation wizard. Instead of generating a new response file, you can edit the default response file that is provided with the fix pack. However, before you can use the default response file, add encrypted passwords to the file.

To edit the default response file...


  1. Open a command prompt and change to the <Lotus_Connections_setup>/Lotus_Connections_install/IM/<OS> directory, where <OS> is your operating system.

  2. Run the following command:

    • AIX or Linux™: IBMIM -silent -noSplash -encryptString <Password>

    • Windows™: IBMIMc.exe -silent -noSplash -encryptString <Password>

        where <Password> is your password.

  3. Add the encrypted password to the relevant line in the 3.0.1 LC_update.rsp response file, located in the same directory as the fix pack. You usually enter passwords for both the WAS administrator and the database user. For example:

      <data key='user.activities.adminuser.password' value='<encrypted_password>'/>

      <data key='user.activities.dbUserPassword value='<encrypted_password>'/>

      where <encrypted_password> is the value generated by the command.

      You might also need to change the default WAS administrator name from wasadmin, if it is different from your administrator name.

  4. Repeat these steps for each unique password.

What to do next

Use the response file to silently install the fix pack.
