Change the default shared resource location for Installation Manager

Technote (FAQ)


Question

When installing WebSphere Process Server through the launchpad, can I change the default shared resource location?

Answer

Yes. You can change the default shared resource location by using the following procedure.

The following steps are for new installations. If you already have installed and want to change the shared resource location, you will have to uninstall and reinstall after following these steps.

Steps

1. Locate the default shared resource. Depending on whether you are an administrative (root) or non-administrative (non-root) user, find the default shared resource location in one of the following tables.


Administrative or root users

Platform Default Location for shared resources
AIX /usr/IBM/BPMShared
HP-UX /opt/IBM/BPMShared
Linux /opt/ibm/BPMShared
Solaris /opt/IBM/BPMShared
Windows <ProgramFiles>\IBM\BPMShared



Non-administrative or non-root users

Platform Default Location for shared resources
AIX <HOME>/IBM/BPMShared
HP-UX <HOME>/IBM/BPMShared
Linux <HOME>/ibm/BPMShared
Solaris <HOME>/IBM/BPMShared
Windows <APPDATA>\IBM\BPMShared



2. Modify the <imageLocation> /launchpad/content/userExtensions.js file, where <imageLocation> is the location of the installation image of WebSphere Process Server.



3. Replace the existing defaultSharedPlugins() and defaultSharedPlugins_nonroot() functions with the following versions updated with your preferred location, <NEW_SHARED_LOCATION>.


function defaultSharedPlugins()
{
      var sharedLocation='<NEW_SHARED_LOCATION>';

      return sharedLocation;
}

function defaultSharedPlugins_nonroot()
{
      var sharedLocation='<NEW_SHARED_LOCATION>';
      return sharedLocation;
}
