Installing IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1

Note the following:
  • IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1 updates any IBM Business Monitor V8.0 installation to the 8.0.1.1 level, in the following environments:
    • IBM Business Monitor server installation
    • WebSphere test environment (WTE) installation (for IBM Integration Designer or Rational Application Developer) that includes IBM Business Monitor
  • If the WTE is installed, in addition to updating the WTE, you must also update the development toolkit separately:

Throughout this document, <Monitor_root> will be used to designate the installation location of IBM Business Monitor. For the location of <Monitor_root>, see <Monitor_root> in
http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/dmndhelp/v8r0mx/topic/com.ibm.wbpm.mon.ref.doc/ref/dir_conv.html.

Problems addressed in the Fix Pack
The fixes included in IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1 are detailed in the Fix/Update list for IBM Business Monitor V8.0.

Prerequisites

  • In the WTE installed under Rational Application Developer, you must ensure that the following repository is included in the list of repositories in IBM Installation Manager:
http://public.dhe.ibm.com/software/websphere/repositories/

Important: If you have IBM Business Monitor V8.0.0.0 installed on a server with IBM Business Process Manager V8.0.0.0, you must install IBM Business Process Manager V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1 at the same time you install this fix pack for IBM Business Monitor.

Additional prerequisites before installing the Fix Pack:


Backing up your IBM Business Monitor profile

Note: For the WTE, profile backup is not required, and should not be performed. Additionally, when you roll back IBM Business Monitor in the WTE from V8.0.1.1 to V8.0.0.0 or V8.0.1.0, all Monitor data in the WTE server profiles will be lost.

Important: Before you install this Fix Pack, use these steps for each IBM Business Monitor profile that you want to back up.

  1. Stop the server and the running processes for the profile that you want to back up.
  2. Create a directory to store the backup of the profile. For example, C:\backup\profiles.
  3. Go to <Monitor_root>\profiles\<profileName>\bin.
  4. Run the following command or see the note below for an alternate command:
    manageprofiles.bat
    -backupProfile
    -profileName <
    profileName>
    -backupFile <
    backupDirectory>\<profileName>.backup.zip

    Where:

    <
    profileName> represents the name of your profile

    <backupDirectory> is the directory you created to store the backup of the profile. You must provide a fully qualified file path for the backup file. If the path contains any spaces, you must use quotation marks ( " ) before and after the fully qualified path name. For example, "C:\Program Files\profiles\myprofilename.backup.zip."

    Note: Another way to backup your profile configuration is using the backupConfig command. From the <profile_root>/bin directory, run the command backupConfig.bat -help. This command displays the following usage:

    backupConfig [backup_file] [-nostop] [-quiet] [-logfile <filename>]
    [-replacelog] [-trace] [-username <username>] [-password <password>]
    [-profileName <profile>] [-help]

The console should display the following message: INSTCONFSUCCESS: Success: The profile backup operation was successful. You can proceed with installing IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1.

For more information about these parameters, access the link: http:/pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.websphere.nd.doc/info/ae/ae/rxml_manageprofiles.html

    Installation Manager cannot remove the Stand-alone development WebSphere Monitor profile (<profile_name>) feature from this installation package.
  19. If any profiles have been created, run the appropriate command to update the administrative console:

    Linux or UNIX: <Monitor_root>/bin/iscdeploy.sh -restore
    Windows: <Monitor_root>\bin\iscdeploy.bat -restore

Upgrading your IBM Business Monitor profiles in a network deployment environment

Use the procedure in this section to upgrade your IBM Business Monitor profiles that were created prior to installing IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1, in a network deployment environment. If you have a stand-alone profile or you do not have any WebSphere product profiles that were created prior to installing IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1, proceed to the section Restarting the environment after installation of IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1.

Security-enabled network deployment environments
When you apply the Fix Pack in a network deployment environment where WebSphere administrative security is enabled, the connection to the deployment manager requires a user ID and password to be supplied. The IBM Installation Manager does not prompt for these credentials when you start updating an installation containing managed profiles. However, depending on your configuration, you may have to enter the credentials in a separate prompt near the end of the upgrade process.

Note:
The credential panel appears twice during the upgrade process, and has a default timeout period of one minute. If you miss this prompt, or your security configuration is set up such that no prompt is 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 (which the IBM Business Monitor scripts depend on), see Configuring security with scripting in the WebSphere Application Server Information Center.


Upgrading the deployment manager
  1. Install IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1 onto the deployment manager’s installation using IBM Installation Manager as described in the section Installing the Fix Pack. The deployment manager profile is automatically updated during Fix Pack installation.
  2. Check for any errors, as explained in the Identifying profile update errors section, before continuing.


Upgrading the nodes
  1. Start the deployment manager. The deployment manager must be running when you apply the Fix Pack to an installation with a managed profile.

    Note: The only exception to this rule is for managed profiles hosted by the same installation as their deployment manager profile. The managed node configuration is updated as part of the deployment manager profile in this scenario and a separate log file is not written.

    Skip step 2 in this section for managed nodes that are hosted by the same installation as their deployment manager.
  2. For each managed node with an independent installation, perform the following steps:

    a. Ensure all the servers and their node agents are stopped.

    b. Install IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1 onto the managed node’s installation using IBM Installation Manager as described in the section Installing the Fix Pack.

    Note: When applying the Fix Pack in a network deployment environment where WebSphere administrative security is enabled, the connection to the deployment manager requires a user ID and password. Depending on your configuration, you may have to enter the credentials in a separate prompt near the end of the update process. Refer to Security enabled network deployment environments for details.

    The managed node (profile) is automatically updated during Fix Pack installation.
    Log files are saved as:

    <profile_root>/logs/BPMProfileUpgrade.<profileName>.<clusterName>.<timestamp>.log

    where <profile_root> is the root directory of the managed profile.

    c. Check for any errors, as explained in the Identifying profile update errors section, before continuing.
  3. If any of the nodes contain cluster members, follow the steps described under Upgrading clusters before starting the servers.
  4. For each node, restart the node agent and wait for the node synchronization to complete.


Upgrading clusters

After upgrading the deployment manager and the managed nodes containing cluster members, follow these steps to upgrade the clusters before starting the cluster members (servers).
  1. Make sure the deployment manager is stopped.
  2. On the deployment manager, change to <Monitor_root>.
  3. Depending on the platform, run one of the following commands for each cluster:

    Windows: <Monitor_root>\bin\ws_ant.bat -f util\BPMProfileUpgrade.ant -profileName <profileName> -Dupgrade=true -Dcluster=<clusterName> [-Duser=<user> -Dpassword=<password>]

    UNIX and Linux: <Monitor_root>/bin/ws_ant.sh -f util/BPMProfileUpgrade.ant -profileName <profileName> -Dupgrade=true -Dcluster=<clusterName> [-Duser=<user> -Dpassword=<password>]

    where <profileName> is the name of the deployment manager profile and <clusterName> is the name of the cluster.
  4. Check the following log file for errors:

    <profile_root>/logs/BPMProfileUpgrade.<profileName>.<clusterName>.<timestamp>.log

    where <profile_root> is the root directory of the deployment manager profile. There may be more than one file whose name matches this pattern. Open the log files and search for "-cluster" to find the cluster associated with this particular log file. If there is an error, fix the cause, then rerun step 3.
  5. When all clusters have been successfully upgraded, start the deployment manager.
  6. For each node, start the node agent and wait for the node synchronization to complete.

Identifying profile update errors

If an error message "The packages are updated with warnings" is displayed on the Installation Manager summary panel, check the log file <Monitor_root>/logs/wbm/install.FP8011/installconfig_server_profileMaintenance.log.
If it contains the message:

Result of executing [...]BPMProfileMaintenance.ant was: false

then a profile update error has occurred. If multiple profiles in the installation are being updated, search for the first occurrence of
" profileName=" prior to the error to know which profile this error is associated with. Fix the cause, then follow the appropriate steps in the Recovering after profile update errors section.

Note: For network deployment environments, the most likely cause of an error is that a connection to the deployment manager cannot be established.

Recovering after profile update errors

Note: For network deployment environments that are not using clusters, refer to this technote for instructions on identifying and recovering from a particular Business Space profile upgrade error that can occur. For all other profile upgrade errors (in any type of environment), follow the instructions in this section that are appropriate for the profile for which update failed.

Stand-alone profiles and deployment manager profiles
  1. Make sure the stand-alone application server or the deployment manager is stopped.
  2. Change to the <Monitor_root> directory where the profile update error has occurred and run one of the following commands as appropriate for your platform.

    Windows: <Monitor_root>\bin\ws_ant.bat -f util\BPMProfileUpgrade.ant -profileName <profileName> -Dupgrade=true [-Duser=<user> -Dpassword=<password>]

    UNIX and Linux: <Monitor_root>/bin/ws_ant.sh -f util/BPMProfileUpgrade.ant -profileName <profileName> -Dupgrade=true [-Duser=<user> -Dpassword=<password>]

    where <profileName> is the name of the stand-alone profile or deployment manager profile that had update errors.


Federated profiles
  1. Make sure the deployment manager has been started. This is necessary because the BPMProfileUpgrade.ant script must connect to the central configuration repository on the deployment manager to make the updates.
  2. Change to the <Monitor_root> directory where the profile update error has occurred and run one of the following commands as appropriate for your platform.

    Windows: <Monitor_root>\bin\ws_ant.bat -f util\BPMProfileUpgrade.ant -profileName <profileName> -Dupgrade=true [-Duser=<user> -Dpassword=<password>]

    UNIX and Linux: <Monitor_root>/bin/ws_ant.sh -f util/BPMProfileUpgrade.ant -profileName <profileName> -Dupgrade=true [-Duser=<user> -Dpassword=<password>]

    where <profileName> is the name of the federated profile that had update errors.

    If you are updating a federated node when WebSphere administrative security is enabled, you must also supply the -Duser=<userID> -Dpassword=<password> parameters, where <userID> is a user ID from the user registry that has administration authority and <password> is the password for that user ID.

Restarting the environment after installation of IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1
  • In a network deployment environment, start the following components if they are not already started (use the links for instructions):

Verifying the Fix Pack installation
  • Log in to the administrative console.
  • Verify that the Welcome Page contains 8.0.1.1 as the version of IBM Business Monitor.


Updating IBM Business Monitor applications

You must update the following IBM Business Monitor applications in your clusters or servers after applying IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1:


REST Services (RESTServicesGateway)
<Monitor_root >/installableApps/RESTServiceGateway.ear


In a network deployment environment, you must also update the following IBM Business Monitor applications in your clusters or servers after applying IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1 (you do not need to update these applications in a stand-alone environment):


Data Services (IBM_WBM_DATA_SERVICES)
<Monitor_root >/installableApps.wbm/MonitorDataServices.ear

Action Services (IBM_WBM_ACTIONSERVICES)
<Monitor_root >/installableApps.wbm/monactionmgr.ear

REST Services Emitter (IBM_WBM_EMITTER_SERVICES)
<Monitor_root >/installableApps.wbm/EmitterServices.ear

Mobile Dashboard (IBM_WBM_MOBILE_DASHBOARD)
<Monitor_root >/installableApps.wbm/MobileDashboard.ear


Details on the procedure to update IBM Business Monitor applications are documented at the following location:

Updating applications with the console

Note: For the procedure documented at the above location, note the following:
  • In step 3b, select Replace the entire application.
  • In step 4b, where you use the update wizard to specify or edit application binding information, ensure that the Fast Path option is selected on the first page. Click Next on each page of the wizard (do not modify any information) until you reach the last page, then continue with step 5 of the documented procedure (where you will click Finish on the last page of the wizard).

You must also update the IBM Business Monitor widgets for Business Space, by running the wsadmin command.
  1. For your profile, open a command window. For a clustered environment, go to the <deployment_manager_profile_root>/bin directory. For a stand-alone server environment, go to the <profile_root>/bin directory.
  2. At the command prompt, type the wsadmin command to start the wsadmin environment.
  3. Run the updateBusinessSpaceWidgets command:

    For a stand-alone environment, use the following command:

    $AdminTask updateBusinessSpaceWidgets {-serverName <server> -nodeName <node> -noEndpoints true -widgets <Monitor_root>/BusinessSpace/registryData/WBM/widgets}

    For a network deployment environment, use the following command:

    $AdminTask updateBusinessSpaceWidgets {-clusterName <BSpace_cluster_name> -noEndpoints true -widgets <Monitor_root>/BusinessSpace/registryData/WBM/widgets}

    where <BSpace_cluster_name> is the name of the cluster where Business Space is deployed.

In a network deployment environment, start the following components (use the links for instructions):

Updating plug-ins on your CEI server in a network deployment environment

If your CEI server is on WebSphere Application Server V8.0 and is in the same network deployment cell as IBM Business Monitor, and IBM Business Monitor is not installed on that server, you must copy certain plug-ins to the CEI server after installing IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1. Refer to the following technote for instructions:

Monitor model is not receiving events and instances are not viewable on the dashboard

Note that if CEI is on IBM Business Process Manager V8.0.1, the plug-ins have already been updated.

If CEI is in a different network deployment cell than IBM Business Monitor, you must update the cross-cell files on the remote CEI system, using the procedure in the section Updating support applications in a cross-cell environment.

Updating support applications in a cross-cell environment

In a cross-cell environment, where CEI is on WebSphere Application Server V8.0, after applying IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1 you must update the cross-cell files on the remote CEI system, using the procedure below. Note that if CEI is on IBM Business Process Manager V8.0.1.1, the cross-cell files have already been updated. Also note that if IBM Business Monitor is installed on the remote CEI server, there is no additional action required in this section.

Note: The term “remote CEI server” in this section refers to the remote stand-alone server (comprising its own remote cell) or the deployment manager of the remote cell containing the CEI target.
  1. Stop the remote CEI cell. (For a stand-alone CEI server, stop the server. For CEI in a network deployment environment, stop the cell in this sequence: servers, clusters, node agents, deployment manager.)
  2. Copy the updated cross-cell files to the remote CEI server.

    a. Delete all files named <WAS_root>/plugins/com.ibm.wbimonitor.monresources_8.0*.jar ('*' is a wildcard character representing any pattern of characters between "8.0" and ".jar") from the remote CEI server.

    b. From the <WAS_root>/scripts.wbm/crosscell folder of the local IBM Business Monitor server installation, locate the appropriate file depending on your operating system:

    Linux or UNIX: monitorCommunicationWithWAS80BasedCells.tar
    Windows: monitorCommunicationWithWAS80BasedCells.zip

    Copy the appropriate file to the <WAS_root>/plugins folder of the remote CEI server, and extract the contents.

    c. On the remote CEI server, for each server profile, go to the <profile_root>/bin folder, and run the appropriate command to configure the application server to recognize the .jar file:

    Linux or UNIX: osgiCfgInit.sh
    Windows: osgiCfgInit.bat
  3. Restart the remote CEI cell. (For a CEI stand-alone server, restart the server. For CEI in a network deployment environment, restart the cell in this sequence: deployment manager, node agents, clusters, servers.)


Updating the Cognos widget catalog in WebSphere Portal

If you have previously installed IBM Business Monitor widgets in WebSphere Portal, use the procedure below to update the Cognos widget catalog. ( Note: In a clustered WebSphere Portal environment, the procedure only needs to be executed on one of the nodes.)
  1. Copy the file update_reportviewer_portlet.xml (attached below) to a temporary directory on the WebSphere Portal server (for example, C:\temp for Windows, or /tmp for Linux or UNIX platforms).

    update_reportviewer_portlet.xml
  2. On the WebSphere Portal server, open a command prompt, and go to the directory <WP_root>/bin.
  3. Run the following command

    Windows: xmlaccess.bat -url http://<WP_hostname>:<WP_port>/wps/config
    -user <
    WP_admin> -password <WP_pw>
    -in c:\temp\update_reportviewer_portlet.xml
    -out c:\temp\update_reportviewer_portlet_out.xml


    Linux or UNIX: xmlaccess.sh -url http://<WP_hostname>:<WP_port>/wps/config
    -user <
    WP_admin> -password <WP_pw>
    -in /tmp/update_reportviewer_portlet.xml
    -out /tmp/update_reportviewer_portlet_out.xml

    <
    WP_hostname> = WebSphere Portal server hostname
    <WP_port> = WebSphere Portal server HTTP port
    <
    WP_admin> = WebSphere Portal server administrative user ID
    <WP_pw> = WebSphere Portal administrative password


Applying library code fixes to monitor model applications

After updating your IBM Business Monitor installation with a Fix Pack, you still need to update the individual monitor model applications because they are not updated automatically. To help you update these applications, a script and sample response file are included in the Fix Pack in the < Monitor_root>/scripts.wbm/MM_App_Updater directory.

Before you begin, back up your monitor model applications using the export function from the Enterprise Applications page in the administrative console. To display the administrative console page, click Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications.

To apply fixes to the library code for your monitor model applications, use the following steps to update the response file (MM_App_Updater_Config_80.properties) and then run the updateMMApplicationLibraries_80 script on your deployment manager or stand-alone server. After you update the properties file, the script updates the library code for all monitor model applications that are compatible with the update that you are applying and it matches the restrictions declared in the response file.

To update the configuration properties file, make a backup copy of the MM_App_Update_config_80.properties file located in the <Monitor_root>/scripts.wbm/MM_App_Updater directory, and complete the following steps on the deployment manager or stand-alone server:

  1. In a text editor, open the MM_App_Update_config_80.properties file located in the <Monitor_root>/scripts.wbm/MM_App_Updater directory.
    The response file documents all the options with comments in the file.
  2. Check the response file options and update them if necessary because they vary for individual installations:
  • hostname - set to localhost because you should always run this script from the deployment manager or stand-alone server.
  • port - enter the port to use to transport information. For SOAP, use the SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS port for the stand-alone server or deployment manager. For RMI, use the BOOTSTRAP_ADDRESS port for the stand-alone server or deployment manager. The default is the default SOAP port, 8880. (The default RMI port is 2809.)
  • username - remove the pound sign (#) before the username property, and then enter the user name to use for authentication. Note that any trailing spaces will be interpreted as being part of the user name, so ensure that the right number of trailing spaces is included. If you do not have security enabled, leave this field blank.
  • password - remove the pound sign (#) before the password property, and then enter the password to use for authentication. Note that any trailing spaces will be interpreted as being part of the password, so ensure that the right number of trailing spaces is included. If you do not have security enabled, leave this field blank.
3. To check your response file before running it, set the validateResponseFileOnly property. This test is always done as part of the script's execution, but setting this flag forces the script to check the response file without performing any updates.

4. To test the compatibility of your applications with the update, set the testMMAppCompatibilityOnly property. This test is always done as part of the script's execution to ensure that no incompatible monitor model application is updated. However, setting this flag forces the script to check the compatibility of the monitor model applications without performing any updates.

5. To turn on tracing, which is usually not necessary, edit the logging.properties file and uncomment this line: com.ibm.wbimonitor.server.updater.level = FINEST.

6. Stop all the monitor models currently installed.

7. Back up each installed monitor model application by exporting it to an EAR file.  Use this link for instructions:

http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.websphere.express.doc/info/exp/ae/trun_app_distr.html

8. Run the appropriate command to install the updated library code:
  • updateMMApplicationLibraries_80.bat (Windows)
  • updateMMApplicationLibraries_80.sh (UNIX)

Note: If you are installing on a network deployment environment, wait until the nodes have finished synchronizing before starting the monitor model applications. You can view the synchronization status from the administrative console by clicking System Administration > Nodes.

9. Start the monitor model applications.

Installing a new or updating an existing showcase model

Note: The showcase model is only supported on a stand-alone IBM Business Monitor profile.

Installing a new showcase model

Refer to this link in the IBM Business Monitor Information Center for instructions to install a new showcase model:

http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/dmndhelp/v8r0m1/topic/com.ibm.wbpm.mon.imuc.doc/inst/inst_showcase.html


Updating an existing showcase model

Use these steps to update an existing showcase model:
  1. After installing V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1, log on to Business Space.
  2. Delete the existing "Better Lender Space."
  3. On a command line, change directories to the directory, <Monitor_root>/installableApps.wbm/showcase/scripts.
  4. Execute the following command, showcase.bat/sh -w <monitor_profile_root>.
    This command uninstalls the prior version of the showcase model, and then installs the new showcase model and all of its new artifacts.
    Note: If the pathname represented by <monitor_profile_root> contains any spaces, you must use the "8.3" notation to specify the pathname in the command. For example, if the pathname is C:\IBM\WebSphere 80\profiles\MonSrv01, you must use C:\IBM\WEBS80~1\profiles\MonSrv01 as the pathname in the command.



Uninstalling IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1

Backing up your Business Space pages added by the 8.0.1.1 upgrade

You must update the following IBM Business Monitor applications in your clusters or servers after uninstalling IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1:


REST Services (RESTServicesGateway)
<Monitor_root >/installableApps/RESTServiceGateway.ear


In a network deployment environment, you must also update the following IBM Business Monitor applications in your clusters or servers after applying IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1 to restore them to the previous levels (you do not need to update these applications in a stand-alone environment):


Data Services (IBM_WBM_DATA_SERVICES)
<Monitor_root >/installableApps.wbm/MonitorDataServices.ear

Action Services (IBM_WBM_ACTIONSERVICES)
<Monitor_root >/installableApps.wbm/monactionmgr.ear

REST Services Emitter (IBM_WBM_EMITTERSERVICES)
<Monitor_root >/installableApps.wbm/EmitterServices.ear

Mobile Dashboard (IBM_WBM_MOBILE_DASHBOARD)
<Monitor_root >/installableApps.wbm/MobileDashboard.ear


Details on the procedure to update IBM Business Monitor applications are documented at the following location:

Updating applications with the console

Note: For the procedure documented at the above location, please note the following:
  • In step 3b, select Replace the entire application.
  • In step 4b, where you use the update wizard to specify or edit application binding information, ensure that the Fast Path option is selected on the first page. Click Next on each page of the wizard (do not modify any information) until you reach the last page, then continue with step 5 of the documented procedure (where you will click Finish on the last page of the wizard).

You must also update the IBM Business Monitor widgets for Business Space, by running the wsadmin command.
  1. For your profile, open a command window. For a clustered environment, go to the <deployment_manager_profile_root>/bin directory. For a stand-alone server environment, go to the <profile_root>/bin directory.
  2. At the command prompt, type the wsadmin command to start the wsadmin environment.
  3. Run the updateBusinessSpaceWidgets command:

    For a stand-alone environment, use the following command:

    $AdminTask updateBusinessSpaceWidgets {-serverName <server> -nodeName <node> -noEndpoints true -widgets <Monitor_root>/BusinessSpace/registryData/WBM/widgets}

    For a clustered environment, use the following command:

    $AdminTask updateBusinessSpaceWidgets {-clusterName <BSpace_cluster_name> -noEndpoints true -widgets <Monitor_root>/BusinessSpace/registryData/WBM/widgets}

    where <BSpace_cluster_name> is the name of the cluster where Business Space is deployed.

In a network deployment environment, start the following components (use the links for instructions):
Restoring plug-ins on your CEI server in a network deployment environment

If your CEI server is on WebSphere Application Server V8.0 and is in the same network deployment cell as IBM Business Monitor, and IBM Business Monitor is not installed on that server, you must copy certain plug-ins to the CEI server after uninstalling IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1. Refer to the following technote for instructions:

Monitor model is not receiving events and instances are not viewable on the dashboard

If CEI is in a different network deployment cell than IBM Business Monitor, you must update the cross-cell files on the remote CEI system, using the procedure in the section, Restoring support applications in a cross-cell environment.
Restoring support applications in a cross-cell environment

In a cross-cell environment, where CEI is on WebSphere Application Server V8.0, after uninstalling IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1 you must update the cross-cell files on the remote CEI system, using the procedure below.

Note: The term “remote CEI server” in this section refers to the remote stand-alone server (comprising its own remote cell) or the deployment manager of the remote cell containing the CEI target.
  1. Stop the remote CEI cell. (For a stand-alone CEI server, stop the server. For CEI in a network deployment environment, stop the cell in this sequence: servers, clusters, node agents, deployment manager.)
  2. Follow the appropriate steps to copy the updated cross-cell files to the remote CEI server:

    Choose the appropriate action depending on whether or not IBM Business Monitor V8.0 is already installed on the remote CEI server.

    If IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 is installed locally, but not on the remote CEI server:

    a. Delete all files named <WAS_root>/plugins/com.ibm.wbimonitor.monresources_8.0*.jar ('*' is a wildcard character representing any pattern of characters between "8.0" and ".jar") from the remote CEI server.

    b. From the <WAS_root>/scripts.wbm/crosscell folder of the local IBM Business Monitor server installation, locate the appropriate file depending on your operating system:

    Linux or UNIX: monitorCommunicationWithWAS80BasedCells.tar
    Windows: monitorCommunicationWithWAS80BasedCells.zip.

    Copy the appropriate file to the <WAS_root>/plugins folder of the remote CEI server, and extract the contents.

    c. On the remote CEI server, for each server profile, go to the <profile_root>/bin folder, and run the appropriate command to configure the application server to recognize the .jar file:

    Linux or UNIX: osgiCfgInit.sh
    Windows: osgiCfgInit.bat

    If IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1 is installed both locally and on the remote CEI server:

    a. From the <WAS_root>/scripts.wbm/crosscell folder of the local IBM Business Monitor server installation, copy the com.ibm.wbimonitor.observationmgr.crosscell_8.0.0.0.jar file to the <WAS_root>/plugins folder of the remote CEI server.

    b. On the remote CEI server, for each server profile, go to the <profile_root>/bin folder, and run the appropriate command to configure the application server to recognize the .jar file:

    Linux or UNIX: osgiCfgInit.sh
    Windows: osgiCfgInit.bat

  3. Restart the remote CEI cell. (For a CEI stand-alone server, restart the server. For CEI in a network deployment environment, restart the cell in this sequence: deployment manager, node agents, clusters, servers.)

Restoring monitor model applications

You need to restore the monitor model applications that were exported during the "Applying library code fixes to monitor model applications" steps.

1. Stop all the monitor models currently installed.

2. Update each monitor model application from the corresponding monitor model application EAR file you exported in step 7 of the procedure in the section “Steps for updating”.  Details on the procedure to update IBM Business Monitor applications are documented at the following location:

Updating applications with the console

Note: For the procedure documented at the above location, please note the following:

  • In step 3b, select Replace the entire application.
  • In step 4b, where you use the update wizard to specify or edit application binding information, ensure that the Fast Path option is selected on the first page. Click Next on each page of the wizard (do not modify any information) until you reach the last page, then continue with step 5 of the documented procedure (where you will click Finish on the last page of the wizard).

Note: If you are installing on a network deployment environment, wait until the nodes have finished synchronizing before starting the monitor model applications. You can view the synchronization status from the administrative console by clicking System Administration > Nodes.

3. Start the monitor model applications.
