Installer to apply updates and fix packs to IBM® WebSphere® Portal and affiliated products.
The WebSphere Portal Update Installer is version-specific and is used to install or uninstall interim or cumulative fixes, fix packs, and other maintenance delivery vehicles.
- The update installer for V6.1 can be used with WebSphere Portal version 6.1 only, including Express editions. Click the link above for a different version.
For Version 6.1: The documentation is included in the downloadable file for the Version 6.1 Portal Update Installer. In addition to the familar universal update installer (which is not platform specific), we now have available platform-specific update installers which include a Java™ runtime environment bundled in to improve your experience when installing a fix pack or other service maintenance.
The platform-specific WebSphere Portal Update Installers allow you to invoke the graphical "Wizard" interface directly without setting the necessary environment variables for the Java code to run properly. When using the platform-independent update installer, you must still set the command shell's environment properly:
Run the following command from the <WAS_profile_root>/bin directory to set up the Java environment for the WebSphere Portal Update Installer:
Microsoft® Windows™: setupCmdLine.bat
Unix™/Linux®: . ./setupCmdLine.sh
i5/OS™: Open a command prompt and enter STRQSH to start the Qshell Interpreter and then enter the following command in the directory where the updatePortal.sh file is located:
- For Base: export WAS_PROD_HOME=/QIBM/ProdData/WebSphere/AppServer/V6/Base
- For Network Deployment (ND): export WAS_PROD_HOME=/QIBM/ProdData/WebSphere/AppServer/V6/ND
* Note: Permissions on the WebSphere root directory and the system temporary locations must allow the user running the Portal Update Installer to have read, write, and execute privileges. For example, if installing a fix or fix pack by a non-root user on Linux or Unix, the /WebSphere and /tmp directories should have privileges set accordingly to allow successful installation and uninstall (such as 777). Failure to set permissions properly could result in a failure such as this log output:
subTmpDir to be cleaned up: /tmp/ptfs
Fix pack installation has failed. Consult /<Portal_Server_root>/version/log/%date%_%time%_%file%.log for error details.
