Error description

  • When installing IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 on Linux as
    a prelude to installing IBM Rational ClearCase 8.0.0.1, there
    are some ambiguous area of the installation documentation that
    require clarification:
    
    1: In the 'Installing WebSphere Application Server V8.0 web
    components' section at
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/cchelp/v8r0m0/topic/com
    .ibm.rational.clearcase.cc_ms_install.doc/topics/was_install/t_i
    nstall_was8_components.htm
    Several steps in this topic (from Step 14 onwards) assume that
    the installation is on Microsoft Windows, and do not offer any
    options a Linux/Unix installation.
    
    2: In the 'Configuring a web plug-in for IBM HTTP server version
    8' section at.
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/cchelp/v8r0m0/topic/com
    .ibm.rational.clearcase.cc_ms_install.doc/topics/was_install/t_c
    onfig_web_plugin_ihs8.htm
    The sample location for the location of the Web Server Plug-in
    Location, may not be correct for Linux/Unix hosts. the
    UNIX/Linux location example is 'WASplugin, /opt/IBM/WebSphere'
    and needs to be
    'WASPlugin, /opt/IBM/WebSphere/Plugins' to allow the selection
    of the IBM HTTP server plugin.
    
    3: In the 'Configuring a web plug-in for IBM HTTP server version
    8'section at
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/cchelp/v8r0m0/topic/com
    .ibm.rational.clearcase.cc_ms_install.doc/topics/was_install/t_c
    onfig_web_plugin_ihs8.htm
    The 'Complete the plug-in configuration process.' states click
    (Remote) Host name or IP address of the application server.
    Then, type the IP address of the WebSphere Application Server
    that you are configuring the web server plug-in for.'
    
    This is only true if the HTTP server is not on the same machine
    as the WAS server, which is a different configuration than the
    rest of the installation instructions describe.
