About fix pack and prerequisites


Problems addressed in this fix pack

The fixes addressed in V7.5.0 Fix Pack 1 are explained in the Fix List for Business Process Manager products and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus document.





Fix pack prerequisites

To use this fix pack, you must have the following version of IBM Business Process Manager Express, IBM Business Process Manager Standard, IBM Business Process Manager Advanced, or IBM Business Process Manager Advanced - Process Server installed:

  • 7.5.0.0

Hardware and software prerequisites for IBM Business Process Manager Express, IBM Business Process Manager Standard, IBM Business Process Manager Advanced, and IBM Business Process Manager Advanced - Process Server are available on the web on their respective Hardware and Software Support pages.



Installing the fix pack

Upgrade instructions for installations with existing profiles:



If you have been using IBM Business Process Manager Express, IBM Business Process Manager Standard, IBM Business Process Manager Advanced, or IBM Business Process Manager Advanced - Process Server V7.5.0.0 and you have created profiles, additional steps are required. Also, if you installed the product using the Typical installation, a profile was created and you need to follow these steps. These steps include backing up the profile, stopping all Java™ processes, and sequencing the upgrade. Before you continue with the fix pack installation, see the Upgrade Instructions for installations with existing profiles document for details on these steps. Return to this document, when instructed, to complete the Version 7.5.0 Fix Pack 1 installation.

Important:
Depending on the topology, instructions for updating the profile vary. The product might not continue to run successfully if you do not follow the instructions that are provided in the Upgrade Instructions for installations with existing profiles document.





Network deployment environments


When you apply the fix pack in a network deployment environment, the connection to the deployment manager requires a user ID and password. Depending on your configuration, you might have to enter the credentials in a separate prompt near the end of the upgrade process.

Note: The credential panel displays twice during the upgrade process and has a default time out period of one minute. If you miss this prompt, your security configuration is set up such that a prompt is not displayed, or if you are running the silent installation script, follow the instructions in the Identifying Profile Update Errors section.

For more information on how to configure security for WebSphere administration scripts, on which the WebSphere Process Server scripts depend, see configuring security with scripting in the WebSphere Application Server Information Center.




Installing V7.5.0 Fix Pack 1 (7.5.0.1)

If you have existing profiles under this installation, before you continue with the fix pack installation, see Upgrade instructions for installations with existing profiles for details on the steps to follow for the various topologies. Return to this document, when instructed, to complete the Version 7.5.0 Fix Pack 1 installation.

If you have installed IBM Process Designer 7.5.0.0, you need to update your IBM Process Designer environment separately to V7.5.0 Fix Pack 1. Follow the Installation Instructions of V7.5.0 Fix Pack 1 (V7.5.0.1) for IBM Process Designer.

Fix pack install verification


For upgrades of installations with existing profiles, refer to the Identifying profile update errors section under the Profile upgrade tab for details on verifying the fix pack installation.

Note: Installation Manager on the Windows operating system does not recognize profile update errors. When you upgrade an installation on Windows, you must look at the Identifying Profile Update Errors section, even if Installation Manager ends with the following message: "The packages are updated".





Rolling back the V7.5.0 Fix Pack 1 (V7.5.0.1)

You can 'roll back' the fix pack to a previous version, by using one of the following options:
Graphical user interface (GUI) of IBM Installation Manager to roll back an installation
Command line interface of IBM Installation Manager for a silent roll back of a fix pack

Note: The following procedure only rolls back the product binary. Any existing profiles that were upgraded during a fix pack installation are not rolled back; you must restore the profiles from the backup you took before you upgraded the product. Any new profiles created after the upgrade cannot be reused; you must delete and recreate the profiles after you have completed the rollback.


Graphical user interface (GUI) of IBM Installation Manager to rollback an installation
