Install fixes

A fix is considered an interim fix, a cumulative fix, or a fix pack.

During the installation, several temporary IBM WebSphere Application Server fixes are installed. When you install the first fix, a warning displays to uninstall the temporary fixes. Uninstall the temporary fixes and then install your fixes.

  1. Launch the IBM Installation Manager.

  2. Add the repository containing the fix prototype.

    The fix repository should go after the product repository that it supports.

    For example, if there is an IBM WebSphere Portal interim fix, the repositories must be in the following order:

    • WAS product repository

    • WebSphere Portal product repository

    • WebSphere Portal fix repository

  3. Test the repository connection and provide authentication credentials, if necessary, to access the directory where the repositories are stored.

  4. Click Update to install the fix.

  5. Select or enter the fix prototype level.

  6. After accepting the license agreement and reviewing the summary information, run the process to install the interim fix.
