This document details the download and installation instructions of a WebSphere Application Server critical fix for WebSphere Process Server, version 6.1 and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, version 6.1.
Resolving the problem
You must install critical fixes on your system after you perform either of the following:
- A full installation of WebSphere Process Server, version 6.1
- A full installation of WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, version 6.1
This technote includes instructions on how to install these critical fixes and links for downloading the critical fix .pak file.
Note: For WebSphere Integration Developer version 6.1, do not directly apply these critical fixes to your installation using these instructions. Instead, apply the fixes to the test environment using the IBM Installation Manager. See the bottom of this document for details.
|Installing the WebSphere application critical fix|
- Back up the configuration files.
- Stop all Java processes that are running in the IBM Java 2 Runtime, which is included in the WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus or WebSphere Process Server product.
Stop all WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus or WebSphere Process Server processes on the server onto which you plan to install the critical fixes. This includes the node agent process, the deployment manager process, and all server processes that belong to serviceable products, such as the IBM HTTP Server.
Note: If you install the critical fixes for version 6.1 while a WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus or WebSphere Process Server related process is running, then the installed product might not continue to run successfully.
- Install the IBM Update Installer for WebSphere Software 126.96.36.199, which is included on the WebSphere Process Server or WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus CD1, DVD, or electronic software delivery (ESD) image.
You can install the Update Installer from the launchpad or by running the install command from the UpdateInstaller directory on the installation media. The Update Installer can be installed anywhere on your system; remember where you installed it for the remaining installation steps.
- Download the appropriate critical fix for version 6.1 to the following directory on your system:
- Install the critical fixes using the Update Installer with graphical user interface or the Update Installer in silent mode. For the i5/OS system, use the Update Installer in silent mode)
