To use the online repository (PPA), you need to create a keyring file first using the (graphical) IM (as the user was)
cd /home/was/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/ ./IBMIM -keyring /home/was/imkeyring.kyr -password passw0rd
Configure the Passport Advantage Repository for updates
Go to the Repositories and add this one by clicking “Add Repository”.
Click “Test Connection”. This will check the connection, and prompt for your username and password.
The following box opens:
Verify the connection. Close installation manager.
If you need to install multiple servers, it’s obviously a better idea to download the fixpack once and configure the fixpack in your response file.
An alternative way to add this repository , is by incorporating it into the responsefile. However, you’d still need to prepare your password first.
You can obviously also use this method to add the online repository afterwards , and update your WAS server ….
