Re: Installing fix packs

Should specify what files need to be backed up:

1. IM's data files

AIX or Linux (root user): /var/ibm/InstallationManager

AIX or Linux (non-root user): /home//var/ibm/Installation Manager where is the non-root user name

Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IBM\Installation Manager

Windows Server 2008 64-bit: C:\ProgramData\IBM\Installation Manager

2. Create a back-up copy of the WAS dmgr profile directory: profile_root/Dmgr01. For example: D:\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\dmgr.

3. Back up your IBM Connections deployment.

3.1 Create a back-up copy of the IBM Connections installation directory: lotus_connections_root.

3.2 Create a back-up copy of the WAS profile directory: profile_root

Note: If IBM Connections applications are deployed on separate profiles, archive each profile.

3.3 Create a back-up copy of the profileRegistry.xml file, located under app_server_root/properties.

4. Back up any customized configuration files. For more information, see the Saving your customizations topic.
