5.0 Installation instructions
=============================

5.1 Before installing the fix
-------------------------------------

5.1.1 Fix Installation Requirements

This fix should be applied to any Windows or Linux client
systems with the affected IBM JRE.


5.2 Local fix installation
----------------------------------
1. Transfer the appropriate Java runtime install file:

Windows IBM java Install files:

ibm-java-jre-60-win-i386.exe - JRE 6.0 SR12 - Windows
ibm-java2-jre-50-win-i386.exe - JRE 5.0 SR15 - Windows

Linux IBM Java runtime install files:

ibm-java-i386-jre-6.0-12.0.i386.rpm - JRE 6.0 SR12 - Linux
ibm-java2-i386-jre-5.0-15.0.i386.rpm - JRE 5.0 SR15 - Linux

Transfer these files to a temporary directory on the system
where the Tivoli Enterprise Portal client is run.

2. Prior to installing the new IBM Java Runtime on your
machine you must un-install the current IBM java runtime.

On Windows:

From the Windows start button, go to the Windows control
panel. Select uninstall programs, then select the IBM
Java runtime and uninstall.

Once the current JRE is uninstalled you can install the
appropriate Java runtime provided in this fix.

For versions 6.2.0 through 6.2.3 base:
Java 1.5 is the only supported IBM Java version.

Select and double click the ibm-java2-jre-50-win-i386.exe
file you downloaded. This launches the installer for
the IBM Java runtime v1.5. Once the install is complete,
launch the Tivoli Enterprise Portal client to ensure it
runs with the new IBM java runtime.

For versions 6.2.3 FP01 and 6.2.3.FP02:
IBM Java v1.5 and 1.6 are both supported.

In the directory where you downloaded the appropriate
Java runtime install select the file and duble click.

If you are running IBM Java 1.5 then select file
ibm-java2-jre-50-win-i386.exe.

If you are running IBM Java 1.6 then select file
ibm-java-jre-60-win-i386.exe.

This will launch the installer for the IBM Java runtime.
Once the install is complete launch the Tivoli Enterprise
Portal client to ensure it runs with the new IBM java
runtime.

On Linux:
If you have previously installed an IBM java runtime on
Linux, use the systems package manager to uninstall the
current IBM java runtime.

Use the Linux package manager to install the IBM Java
runtime.

Example:

rpm -ivh <ibm-java-i386-jre-6.0-12.0.i386.rpm>

For 622 (ITM622 all fixpack levels) and ITM623 base:
Java 1.5 is the only supported IBM Java version.

ibm-java2-i386-jre-5.0-15.0.i386.rpm.

For ITM623FP1 and ITM623F2:
IBM Java v1.5 and 1.6 are supported.

ibm-java2-i386-jre-5.0-15.0.i386.rpm - IBM java 1.5

ibm-java-i386-jre-6.0-12.0.i386.rpm - IBM Java 1.6

Note: if you are using IBM Java 1.5 on linux you may
have to create a link to the java runtime once
the install is complete.

ln -s /opt/ibm/java2-i386-50/jre/bin/java /usr/bin/java


5.3 Verifying the update
------------------------
To verify the IBM Java runtime installed successfully, run the
following command.

Windows:
Java 1.5:
From a windows command prompt go to:
C:\Program Files\IBM\Java50\jre\bin>

Enter the following command:
java -version

The output for IBM Java 1.5 should look like the following:

Java 1.6
From a windows command prompt go to
C:\Program Files\IBM\Java60\jre\bin>

Enter the following command:
java -version

The output for IBM Java 1.6 should look like the following:
