Prerequisites and co-requisites

This update for ITCAM for Transactions Response Time may be applied to the following base versions.

  • 7.1.X.X
  • 7.2.X.X
  • 7.3.X.X
Note: Supported base versions include interim fixes applied to any of the above release levels.

This MDV replaces the two JREs shipped with the Robotics Response Time (T6) agent to the latest level. This remediates multiple security issues.

This patch is applicable for the T6 agent:
* versions 7.3.0.x, 7.2.0.x and 7.1.0.x
* platforms Windows, AIX and Linux platforms.
The T6's JREs are used when playing back Rational Performance Tester (RPT) scripts only, thus not available on Solaris and HPUX (RPT playback on supported on those platforms).

7.3 agents need to update both java60 and java 70 JREs. 7.2 and 7.1 agents only needs to update java60. These variations are noted in the installation steps below.

Any customisations done to the existing JREs needs to be preseved. Since these JREs are product specific (ie only used by the T6 agent), there should only be at most one customisation as instructed by IBM support; which is to enable strong encryption by updating the JRE's encryption policy (see technote in Related Material).

After the patch, the Java versions will be:
* Java 6.0 SR13 FP2
* Java 7.0 SR4 FP2

Installation information

Installing

1 Before Installing the fix pack
----------------------------------
A. Validate pre-existing java is older than ones delivered in this IFix.
The RRT Agent's javas are located in
Windows:
java60: $ITMHOME\tmaitm6\java60
java70: $ITMHOME\tmaitm6\java70 - only in 7.3.0.1-LA2 and later
Unix:
java60: $ITMHOME/tmaitm6/java60
java70: $ITMHOME/tmaitm6/java70 - only in 7.3.0.1-LA2 and later

Check their versions, eg
C:\ibm\itm\TMAITM6> .\java70\jre\bin\java.exe -version

java version "1.7.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build pwi3270sr2-20120901_01(SR2))
IBM J9 VM (build 2.6, JRE 1.7.0 Windows Server 2008 R2 x86-32 20120809_118929 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled)
J9VM - R26_Java726_SR2_20120809_0948_B118929
JIT - r11.b01_20120808_24925
GC - R26_Java726_SR2_20120809_0948_B118929
J9CL - 20120809_118929)
JCL - 20120831_02 based on Oracle 7u3-b05

Notice that J9VM indicates it is SR2 (no Fixpack) and hence it is
older than SR4 FP2 and needs update.

2 Applying the fix pack
-------------------------
Notes:
1. If you are using 7.2 and 7.1 T6 agents, you do not need to
unarchive the \java70 directory. For 7.3 onwards, please unarchive
both JREs.
2. If you have updated the T6 jre to use strong encryption, you must
migrate the policy files to the new JREs. The two files are:
<JRE_HOME>\lib\security\local_policy.jar
<JRE_HOME>\lib\security\US_export_policy.jar
See: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21245273

A. Back up existing java
1. Stop the T6 agent
2. Backup existing java jres, e.g.
> c:
> cd c:\ibm\itm\tmaitm6\
> move java60 java60.old
> move java70 java70.old - only in 7.3.0.1-LA and later.

B. Replace the JREs
1. Unzip/Untar the archive to the same directory, e.g.
After unarchiving your directory structure should be like

c:\IBM\ITM\TMAITM6>dir java*
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 44AB-01FC

Directory of c:\IBM\ITM\TMAITM6

29/05/2013 02:02 PM <DIR> java60
12/03/2012 04:08 PM <DIR> java60.old
29/05/2013 02:04 PM <DIR> java70
13/02/2013 02:14 PM <DIR> java70.old
0 File(s) 0 bytes
4 Dir(s) 30,808,731,648 bytes free
2. (Optional) Preserve security policy files, e.g.
> cd c:\ibm\itm\tmaitm6\
> copy java60.old\jre\lib\security\local_policy.jar java60\jre\lib\security
> copy java60.old\jre\lib\security\US_export_policy.jar java60\jre\lib\security
> copy java70.old\jre\lib\security\local_policy.jar java70\jre\lib\security
> copy java70.old\jre\lib\security\US_export_policy.jar java70\jre\lib\security

C. Validate the update JRE version/function
1. check version number of JRE 6.0, e.g.
> c:
> cd c:\ibm\itm\tmaitm6
> java60\jre\bin\java.exe -version
java version "1.6.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build pwi3260sr13fp2-20130424_01(SR13 FP2))
IBM J9 VM (build 2.4, JRE 1.6.0 IBM J9 2.4 Windows Server 2008 R2 x86-32 jvmwi32
60sr13fp2-20130423_146146 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled)
J9VM - 20130423_146146
JIT - r9_20130108_31100ifx1
GC - 20121212_AA)
JCL - 20130419_01

> java70\jre\bin\java.exe -version
java version "1.7.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build pwi3270sr4fp2-20130426_01(SR4 FP2))
IBM J9 VM (build 2.6, JRE 1.7.0 Windows Server 2008 R2 x86-32 20130422_146026 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled)
J9VM - R26_Java726_SR4_FP2_20130422_1320_B146026
JIT - r11.b03_20130131_32403ifx4
GC - R26_Java726_SR4_FP2_20130422_1320_B146026
J9CL - 20130422_146026)
JCL - 20130425_01 based on Oracle 7u21-b09

D. Restart Agent and ensure RPT Script playback works.

E. (Optional) Delete the backup java runtimes.
