You start the installation of IBM Installation Manager. You receive the error:
"Invalid Configuration Location:
The configuration area at '/home' is not writable. Please choose a
writable location using the '-configuration' command-line option."
This issue occurs when the path for the home directory contains one of the following characters:
: % # < > "
When the path for the home directory contains unsupported characters, an incorrect path is used for the Eclipse configuration area when you install Installation Manager.
Resolving the problem
To work around this issue, specify a new path for the Eclipse configuration area that does not contain any of these characters:
: % # < > "
Run one of these commands with the
-configuration <path> option:
install -configuration /tmp/eclipse/configuration
groupinstc -installationDirectory /InstallationManager/bin -dataLocation /InstallationManager/appdata -acceptLicense -configuration /tmp/eclipse/configuration
After Installation Manager is installed, you can delete the files that are created in the specified directory.
