You can use the Update Installer V188.8.131.52 to install maintenance and updates for both IBM® WebSphere® Application Server V6.1 and V184.108.40.206 onwards with some exceptions.
In order to enhance usability and provide a smaller tooling footprint, there is a new strategy for the Update Installer that eliminates the need to install multiple instances of the tool. A single instance of the V6.1 Update Installer can now apply maintenance to all WebSphere Application Server V6.1.0 (any fix level) and any newer maintenance from WebSphere Application Server V220.127.116.11 onward.
See the Supported platforms table for information on Update Installer V6.1 compatibility with WebSphere Application Server V6.0.2 platforms.
The Update Installer V18.104.22.168 has the following functionality:
- A GUI and a command-line Update Installer
- Installation and removal of individual and/or multiple code updates
- Logging, recovery features and prerequisite handling
- Compatibility with previous releases in certain cases
To install maintenance through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or through a command line interface, follow the instructions that are included in the Installation instructions section of this document or in the Readme file, which is available in the install directory:
Supported platforms for Update Installer V6.1.0 (any fix level) and V6.0.2 (any fix level) release
