I wrote this deck as an as-is guide for an IBM colleague who was looking to install WAS v7 on RHEL 6.3. Please note that this deck is provided as-is, and it does not replace the official installation guidance and materials in the WAS Information Center - http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v7r0/index.jsp

  1. 1. Installing WebSphere Application Server v7 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux v6.3 Dave Hay IBM Software Services for WebSphere david_hay@uk.ibm.com // +44 7802 918423
  2. 2. Pre-Requisites ● Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 x86-64 – vanilla installation, not patched $ uname -a Linux vinny.uk.ibm.com 2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Jun 13 18:24:36 EDT 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux $ cat /etc/redhat-release Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.3 (Santiago) ● WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V7.0 for Linux on x86, 64-bit C1G35ML.tar.gz http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27013044
  3. 3. Linux Preparation ● Preparing Linux systems for installation http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v7r0/topic/com.ibm.websphere.installation.nd.doc/info/ ae/ae/tins_linuxsetup.html ● Preparing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 for installation http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v7r0/topic/com.ibm.websphere.installation.nd.doc/info/ ae/ae/tins_linuxsetup_rhel6.html Specifically: – Disabled SELinux by setting SELINUX=disabled in /etc/selinux/config – IPTables disabled by chkconfig iptables --levels 345 off and service iptables stop – Used yum to install pre-requisite libraries including compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-69, libXmu-1.0.5-1 and libXft-2.1.13-4.1 etc.
  4. 4. Other Notes ● ● ● ● ● Installing as root – not usually recommended Installing via GUI – often not an option, especially on client sites Not installing fixes/fixpacks – typically, this would be the next logical step Not creating additional WebSphere profiles RHEL is running on VMware Fusion 5 – almost certainly irrelevant
  5. 5. Checking that the server has a “pukka” hostname that's resolvable via ping, and then preparing to unpack the WAS ND v7 code
  6. 6. Code is now unpacked. Comparing and contrasting the modifed browser.sh script – this needs to be updated to take account of Firefox 10 as per this Technote http://www01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss? uid=swg21595098
  7. 7. Putting the updated browser.sh script in place ( into /tmp/WAS7/launchpad ) and getting ready to start the launchpad via /tmp/WAS7/launchpad.sh
  8. 8. And heeeeeeeer's Launchpad ...
  9. 9. Welcome ...

  12. 12. Noting, and ignoring, the fact that the installer does not formally support Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3
  13. 13. Choosing to install the sample applications ( even though, for this example, we're only installing a Deployment Manager node )
  14. 14. Taking the default, for Linux, path
  15. 15. Choosing to install a Management environment only
  16. 16. Choosing to create a Deployment Manager profile
  17. 17. Choosing to secure the cell using Administrative Security ( for the record, the password for wasadmin is passw0rd !! )

  24. 24. IVT completed without problems
  25. 25. When we try and launch the Administrative Console from First Steps, this is what we see – solution is to amend the First Steps browser script ( fbrowser.sh ) as per the previous step – Slide 6
  26. 26. Manually navigating to the Integration Solutions Console, adding the self-signed certificate to the browser's trust store
  27. 27. Adding an Exception ( in this case )
  28. 28. And so on

  34. 34. Job Done ● This concludes the exercise – WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment v7 has been successfully installed onto a “vanilla” installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux x6.3 ( x86-64 )
