Installing the refresh pack during an initial installation
If you are installing IBM Rational Software Analyzer, Version 7.1.0 for the first time or if you are installing an additional instance of it, you can install this update at the same time that you install IBM Rational Software Analyzer, Version 7.1.0 by clicking Check for updates on the Install page of the Installing Packages wizard in IBM Installation Manager.

For installation instructions, see the "Installing and upgrading" section in the product information center at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/rsarhelp/v7r1/index.jsp.








Silent installation instructions

Updated information about silent installation is available in the Installation Manager Information Center at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/install/v1r2/index.jsp.






Uninstalling the refresh pack
If you updated a previously installed version to version 7.1.0.1, you can revert to the previous version by using the rollback feature of Installation Manager. For instructions on uninstalling the product, see the Uninstalling the product topic in the product information center.

The rollback feature uninstalls the updated resources and reinstalls the resources from the previous version. You can only roll back one version level at a time.

When you roll back to an earlier version of a package, it will be restored with same features that were associated with that version; any features that you added after upgrading to version 7.1.0.1 will be removed, and any features that you removed will be restored.

During the rollback process, Installation Manager must access files from the earlier version of the package. By default, these files are stored on your system when you install a package. If you changed the default setting or deleted the files by using the Remove Stored Files option on the Roll Back preferences page (File > Preferences > Rollback Files), Installation Manager will require access to your installation repository or media. If you installed the product from a repository, you must have listed in your Preferences (File > Preferences > Repositories) the repository from which you installed the previous version of the product. If you installed the product from CDs or other media, they must be available when you use the rollback feature.

Before you roll back IBM Rational Software Analyzer, Version 7.1.0.1, complete the following steps:

  1. Log in with a user account that has the same privileges as the account that was used to install the packages to be uninstalled.
  2. Close IBM Rational Software Analyzer, Version 7.1.0.1 and any other applications that you installed by using Installation Manager.
  3. If any applications started by Rational Software Analyzer are still open or running, such as a browser, close them.

To roll back an updated package, complete the following steps:
  1. Start IBM Installation Manager.
  2. On the Start page, click Roll Back.
  3. In the Rollback wizard, from the Package Group Name list, select the package group that contains the packages that you want to roll back and click Next.
  4. Select the version of the package that you want to roll back to and click Next.
  5. Read the summary information and click Roll Back.
