Prepare to install Network Deployment on a Windows system

This topic describes how to install the IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, V6 product on a Windows operating system.


Before you begin

Before using this topic to prepare for installing the Network Deployment product, decide the sort of topology you want to install and prepare your operating system. See the following topics for more information:

Log on as a member of the administrator group to successfully install the product. Creating a Windows service for the server1 process requires you to have the following advanced user right: Act as part of the operating system.

During the procedure, one can assign another ID or the one you are using to install as the user who will log on the Windows service. That user requires the advanced user right: Log on as a service.

However, if you do not have this advanced user right or if the user ID that is to log on the Windows service does not have the advanced user right, the Installation wizard assigns the advanced right to the user.



After verifying prerequisites, verifying the product CD, and setting your installation goals, one can start installing. Use the following procedure to link to the type of installation procedure that you require. Then install the Network Deployment product on your operating system.


Steps for this task (dependent on configuration)



The Installation wizard installs the core product files and selected features into the installation root directory.

However, create a profile that defines a deployment manager, a managed node, or a stand-alone application server to have an operational environment.


What to do next

Create a deployment manager profile!

Use the Profile creation wizard to create profiles in the default install_root/profiles directory or in a directory that you select.

See Using the Profile creation wizard.

Deploy an application to get started!

After creating an application server profile, one can deploy an application. See Fast paths for WebSphere Application Server to get started deploying applications.
