Installing HCL Digital Experience in Linux using a response file

We can install IBM WebSphere Application Server from a response file. We can create a response file with the graphical user interface.

Locate the sample response file in the SETUP_root/products/WP95_Server/native directory then unzip wp.im.portal95.samples_9.5.0.201909290018.zip. Modify the file with your environment values. Search for repository and enter the appropriate paths for your environment. Then, search on offering and enter the appropriate offering IDs and profiles for your license. Finally, search on value= and either leave the default values or enter appropriate values for your environment. Read all of the comments for important information.

The installation program verifies the operating system and its prerequisites, available disk space, and any required software prerequisites before installation. We cannot install two instances of the server at the same time, even if we are installing to different directories. You must install each server completely before installing the next one.

  1. If the repository URL requires authentication, use the IBM Installation Manager command-line tool to create a secure Storage File.

    The secure Storage File stores the credentials that are needed for the repositories. The IBM Installation Manager command-line tool imutilsc is available from the installation tools directory. The following information is an example of the imutilsc key ring file command:

      ./imutilsc saveCredential -url repository_URL -userName credential_userName
      	-userPassword password -secureStorageFile storage_file [ -masterPasswordFile master_password_file ]
      [ -preferences com.ibm.cic.common.core.preferences.ssl.nonsecureMode=true|false ]
      	[ -proxyHost proxy_host -proxyPort proxy_port
      		[ -proxyUsername proxy_username -proxyUserPassword proxyuser_password ]
      		[ -useSocks ] ]
      	[ -verbose ]

    Tip: If you install on a different computer, copy the secure Storage File to that computer.

  2. cd InstallationManager_root/eclipse/tools

  3. Install HCL Portal on an existing WebSphere Application Server:

    Tip: Add the -secureStorageFile pathtosecureStorageFile -masterPasswordFile pathtomasterPasswordFile parameters to the imcl command if we are using a secure Storage File to store credentials. ./imcl -acceptLicense input pathtoresponse.xml -log dirpath/logfilename imcl -acceptLicense input pathtoresponse.xml -log dirpath/logfilename imcl -acceptLicense input pathtoresponse.xml -log dirpath/logfilename

What to do next

Before you access WebSphere Application Server, configure the software license agreement to set the usage limit from the Proof of Entitlement (POE) or invoice. Go to Configuring software license information for information.
