Applying a WebSphere 7 Fixpack

This example is for windows, but for 'Nix it is much the same process

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27014463#70011

We will have to go to fix central and download the latest FixPack




7.0.0-WS-WAS-WinX32-FP0000011.pak


To actually install the WebSphere Fixpack, it is required that the latest WebSphere update installer be used to apply the fix pack




Download update installer



=====================

Steps to apply Fix Pack 11 to WebSphere for Windows

Unpack the Fixpack (if required)

Install the latest version of the Update Installer



Accept License Agreement



The system prerequisite check will be run to ensure that the required environment is ready for an install



Select the appropriate installation directory



You will be presented with an installation summary click next



Click Finish as shown below




===============================


Applying the actual FixPack.

Before installing the FixPack, make sure that all the local WebSphere Services are not running.



Once run the Update installer will wish to know the root location of you WebSphere installation, ensure that it has guessed correctly.



Click Next and select Install Maintenance Package



You will be presented with the path to the maintenance packages, you can leave the default and copy in the fixpx.pk file to this location or browse for the actual fix pack.



I choose to move the downloaded pak file to the maintenance folder.



The following screen informs the user that The WebSphere profile will also be updated. Be mindful of other WebSphere feature packs,



In this case since I was using Windows 7 there was an issue with updating files?

Make the WebSphere Service Manual and restart the machine, and then re-try


=================================

Once installed it is a good habit to run versionInfo.bat
