Symptom

TWS 8.5.1/8.6 Installation failure due to disk space problem fails with disk space problem even if there are no problem about disk space available.


Cause

Installation of TWS 8.5.1 FP04 or 86 FP1 on AIX errored on Step: Update the

embedded version of IBM WebSphere Application Server UPDI V7.0.0.21,
due to eWAS UpdateInstaller problem.
(see technote http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21456660
)
Workaround was to ensure eWAS and TWS was down, and as the root user in
the TWS 851 FixPack installation media, at location:

<FP_IMAGE>/AIX/eWAS/UpdateInstaller

Run the WebSphere UPDI installation running the following command, as a
single line, to install the UPDI disabling the disk space check:
===========
./install -is:javaconsole -OPT silentInstallLicenseAcceptance=true
-OPT disableOSPrereqChecking=true -OPT disableEarlyPrereqChecking=true
-OPT installLocation=/sys_apps_01/tws/maestro/UPDI -OPT
skipStartMenu=true -OPT traceFormat=ALL -OPT disableDiskSpaceCheck=true
-W calculatediskspaceInstallWizardBean.active=false -W
checkprereqs.active=false -W
prereqsfailedpanelInstallWizardBean.active=false -silent
===========
Also had to...
Backup the <TWS_IMAGE_DIR>çtws_toolsçupdateBobcat.sh
Edit the <TWS_IMAGE_DIR>çtws_toolsçupdateBobcat.sh
Disable the prerequisite check by adding the options:
add the options:
-OPT disableNonBlockingPrereqChecking="true"
-OPT disableDiskSpaceCheck="true"

-----------
$UPDATEINSTALLER/update.sh -W
maintenance.package="$UPDATEINSTALLER/maintenance/$PATCH_DIR.pak" -W
product.location="$EWASROOT" -W update.type="install" -silent

$UPDATEINSTALLER/update.sh -OPT disableNonBlockingPrereqChecking="true"
-OPT disableDiskSpaceCheck="true" -W
maintenance.package="$UPDATEINSTALLER/maintenance/$PATCH_DIR.pak" -W
product.location="$EWASROOT" -W update.type="install" -silent
