3.0 INSTALLING WEBSPHERE APPLICATION SERVER

After you are sure you meet all the hardware and software requirements
for WebSphere, complete the instructions below to install WebSphere.

3.1 Installing WebSphere Application Server

The WebSphere Installation Files are located in the "WebSphere401"
directory.
1. Insert the WebSphere CD into your CD-ROM drive.
2. Change to the WebSphere401 directory of the WebSphere CD.
3. Run the command file "install.cmd".
4. Follow the instructions on the installation panels to complete
the installation. On the Choose Installation Options panel, it
is recommended that you select the Typical Installation. This
selection will install all components of WebSphere. For
descriptions of the Custom Installation option and command line
options for silent and unattended installations, see the
InfoCenter after you install it as described in section 3.2.

The installation program places a new folder named WebSphere 4.0.1 on
the desktop. See the InfoCenter for a description of the icons in the
folder and what they are for.


3.2 Installing WebSphere InfoCenter

The WebSphere InfoCenter is in the "infocenter" directory on the CD.
There are two installable modules in the InfoCenter.

The first module contains information that applies directly to WebSphere
Application Server on OS/2. This module must be installed because it
contains specific information about post-installation, getting started,
and troubleshooting for WebSphere on an OS/2 system.

The second module is the base documentation for WebSphere Application
Server, Advanced Single Server Edition, on all platforms except OS/2.
This module covers many topics in depth including development tips,
administration, and others. This module is optional, but if it is
not installed some of the links in the OS/2 specific part which
reference multiplatform information in the base module will be presented
as errors by your browser.

The InfoCenter must be installed after WebSphere Application Server is
installed. To install the InfoCenter, with the WebSphere CD still in
the CD drive, complete the following steps:

1. Double click on the "WebSphere 4.0.1" icon which was placed on
the OS/2 desktop when you installed the WebSphere Application
Server.
2. Double click on the "WebSphere Command Environment" icon in the
WebSphere 4.0.1 folder.
3. Perform all the following steps in the "WebSphere Command
Environment" window which is now open.
4. Type "h:\infocenter\install", where h: is your CD-ROM drive
letter, then press the Enter key.
5. From the menu presented, decide which modules to install.
Type the number for your selection, then press the Enter key.

When the InfoCenter installation completes, it writes a log file,
InfoCenterInstall.log, in the parent directory of the AppServer,
typically C:\WebSphere. You can use this file to review the messages
displayed in the command window during installation. Disregard the
following errors at this time:

o Error 19 in Dom2Spt -- in addHistoryElement() -- Element
appserver was not found.
o Error 17 in Dom2Spt -- in addEvent() -- History element could
not added.
o Error 13 -- Failed to add event node.

To view the InfoCenter, either type "viewInfo" then press the Enter key
or open the WebSphere 4.0.1 folder on the desktop and double-click the
InfoCenter icon. Either method starts a browser displaying the InfoCenter
Welcome page.

NOTE: If you want to reinstall the InfoCenter, you must first manually
remove the existing InfoCenter files under the c:\WebSphere\en directory
before reinstalling.

6.0 WORKAROUNDS

Admin Console and Netscape 4.6.1 for OS/2

Issue:

The Admin Console will not open in Netscape 4.6.1 on a Japanese or
Traditional Chinese language machine. This is a problem with a language
variable in Netscape 4.6.1.


Workaround:

To fix this problem, complete the following steps:

1 Open the Netscape 4.6.1 browser
2 Select Edit -> Preferences from the tool bar.
3 In the Preferences dialog box, select Languages under the Navigator
category. This will show the languages that were set up when Netscape was
installed.
4 Delete the defaulted language (either Japanese or Traditional Chinese)
5 Click the Add button.
6 From the list box, reselect the language (ja for Japanese, zh_TW for
Traditional Chinese) and click OK.
7 Click OK on the Preferences dialog box.
