Downloading the product

Your proof of entitlement instructs you on the products you are licensed to install and directs you to your license file. The license file is needed to initiate the installation of Information Server and DataStage Server and includes a ReadMe which must be reviewed prior to installing any component within Information Server 8.1. The 'InfoSphere Information Server 8.1 Default License Key File' and 'InfoSphere DataStage Server 8.1 Default License Key File' are available through Passport Advantage for each operating system platform's eAssembly.

To download the product:

  1. Go to the Find Downloads and Media web page and log in.
  2. Under the Download finder options, select the Find by part number search option.
  3. Search for each downloadable image by the part number, for example:
  4. Product description File name Part number
    IBM InfoSphere Information Server 8.1 Red Hat Linux Multilingual InfoSvr_v8.1_RHEL.tar CZ2MTML
  5. Download all of the required images.
  6. Extract each of the images into a single, temporary directory on your system. Use a file extracting utility that supports large file extractions.
  7. Download the Quick Start Guide. Follow the instructions to perform the basic installation of the product.

If you purchase additional product modules or components after you install the suite, you do not have to download the installation image again. However, you must update the license on the services tier computer before you can install the new modules.
