install command

This topic describes the Installation Factory installer program for WAS products. The install command starts the InstallShield for Multiplatforms (ISMP) Installation wizard. The Installation Factory installer program for WAS installs the customized installation package (CIP) that includes the product image and one or more maintenance packages.

The Installation Factory installer for WAS is based on the V6.x full installer program. The Installation Factory installer program is sometimes referred to as the CIP Installation wizard or the Installation Factory Installation wizard.

The Installation wizard has the capability to perform a new product installation, an incremental installation by adding features to an existing installation, or an update to an existing installation that updates the installation to a new service level. The term slip install is sometimes used to describe an update to an existing installation that updates the installation to a new service level.
