Install a fix pack in silent mode 

Silently install a fix pack to update IBM Connections.

Before you begin

About this task

A silent update uses a response file to automate the installation of a fix pack.

Note: To change the paths to the response file and log file, edit the|bat file.

To perform a silent update...


  1. Stop all clusters in your deployment. Leave the dmgr and node agents running during the fix pack installation.

  2. Open a command prompt and change to the IM_root directory.

  3. Run the following command:

    • AIX or Linux: ./IBMIM --launcher.ini silent-install.ini -input lotus_connections_root/silentResponseFile/LC_update.rsp -log ./update.log

    • Windows: IBMIMc.exe --launcher.ini silent-install.ini -input lotus_connections_root\silentResponseFile\LC_update.rsp -log .\update.log

        Note: If you stored the response file in a location that is different from the default location, change the path in the command to point to the file.

  4. When the installation is complete, synchronize all the nodes and restart all the clusters.

What to do next
