References:


I - Installation Manager - Installation

1) Download IM 1.6 from http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27025142


2) Extract IM and install it

For this example IM is extracted into the /medias-ibm/im-160 directory:


# cd /medias-ibm/im-160

# ./install -acceptLicense --launcher.ini silent-install.ini

Installed com.ibm.cic.agent_1.6.0.20120831_1216 to the /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse directory.



./imcl listinstalledpackages -features -long

/opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse : com.ibm.cic.agent_1.6.0.20120831_1216 : IBM� Installation Manager : 1.6.0 :



II - ClearCase Installation

1) For this example the media is available at the following locations:

    CC 8

    /mnt/UNIX/SUN/SPARC/Rational_ClearCase/8.0.0/disk1/diskTag.inf

    CC 8.0.0.2

    /medias-ibm/CC-8.0.0.2/repository.config

2) Running the IM Console Command

# / cd /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools

# ./imcl -c

---- Common configuration:


Configure IBM Rational Common Licensing

(powered by FLEXlm software)

 

Enter the TCP/IP port and host name of one or more single license servers, separating the server names with a semicolon. If you are entering redundant license servers, specify three servers separating server names with a comma. If you would like to use the server's default port number, you may omit the port number when specifying a license server.

 

If you do not know this information, you can configure the license server after the installation completes by running the IBM Rational License Key Administrator.

 

Example:

         @ss1;27000@ss2;27000@rs1,1765@rs2,@rs3;@ss3


   M. Modify License Server

   K. Keep License Server



-----> [K] M


License server elements:

-----> 27000@9.x.131.34

Enter a temporary directory.

 The temporary directory is used to cache temporary files during installation. The files are removed after the installation finishes.


 Make sure to select a directory that has at least 1.5GB free space.

3) Testing the Installation

3.1) cleartool -ver


# cd /usr/atria/bin

# ./cleartool -ver

ClearCase version 8.0.0.01 (Wed Nov 30 01:01:29 EST 2011) (8.0.0.01.00_2011D.D111129)

ClearCase version 8.0.0.02 (Tue Mar 27 19:58:37 EDT 2012) (8.0.0.02.00_2012A.D120326)

@(#) MVFS version 8.0.0.2 (Tue Mar 20 21:14:29 2012)

cleartool                         8.0.0.2 (Tue Mar 20 21:11:57 2012)

db_server                         8.0.0.2 (Tue Mar 20 21:13:22 2012)

VOB database schema versions: 54, 80



3.2) Verifying the features installed


#

# /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/icmcl listinstalledpackages -features -long

/opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse : com.ibm.cic.agent_1.6.0.20120831_1216 : IBM® Installation Manager : 1.6.0 :

/opt/IBM/RationalSDLC : com.ibm.rational.clearcase.sun5_8.0.2.0000-8-0-0-02-00-2012A-D120326 : IBM® Rational® ClearCase® - Solaris SPARC : 8.0.0.02 : com.ibm.rational.clearcaseunix.CC_FULL,com.ibm.rational.clearcaseunix.CC_MIN_STD_X



4) After the installation run "cleartool hostinfo -l " in order to verify that the License is correct as well. There have been cases where the flexlm_host file is not created (if you choose FLEXLM licenses) in which case you can then follow the steps below:

4.1) Create the flexlm_host file

vi /var/adm/rational/clearcase/config/flexlm_host


4.2) Add the following lines to the above file:

SERVER 27000@9.x.131.34 ANY

USE_SERVER


(note replace 27000@9.x.131.34 to fit your specific environment)

Then save the file and restart ClearCase
