The EAR file could be corrupt and/or incomplete. Make sure that the application is at a compatible Java(TM) Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) level for the current version of WebSphere(R) Application Server.

"SECJ0371W: Validation of the LTPA token failed because the token expired with the following info..." - much more useful with WAS 8.5

I tried / failed to install IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM) Rules 8.7.0.0 onto a newly installed copy of WebSphere Application Server (WAS) 8.5.5.11 ( aka Fixpack 11 ) today.

This is what I was trying to install: -

/opt/ibm/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl listAvailablePackages -repositories /mnt/hgfs/Software/Repo/ODM87/Product/DecisionServerRules/,/mnt/hgfs/Software/Repo/ODM87/Product/ProfileTemplateRules

com.ibm.websphere.odm.ds.rules.v87_8.7.0.20141114_0949
com.ibm.websphere.odm.pt.rules.v87_8.7.0.20141114_1039

Having run this command: -

/opt/ibm/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl -input /mnt/hgfs/Software/Repo/ResponseFiles/installODM87.rsp -acceptLicense

I saw this: -

ERROR: The following errors were generated while installing.
  CRIMA1209E ERROR: Validation failed for property user.wodm_was_home.
    ERROR: The product is unable to determine which edition of WebSphere Application Server is installed at the selected location. Base or Network Deployment edition of version 8.5.5.0 or later is required, depending on the features selected.

    Explanation: The product is unable to determine which edition of WebSphere Application Server is installed at the selected location. Base or Network Deployment edition of version 8.5.5.0 or later is required, depending on the features selected.

    User Action: 


I checked, and ensure that WAS *was* installed: -

I even tried installing ODM 8.7.1.1: -

/opt/ibm/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl listAvailablePackages -repositories /mnt/hgfs/Software/Repo/ODM87/Product/DecisionServerRules/,/mnt/hgfs/Software/Repo/ODM87/Product/ProfileTemplateRules,/mnt/hgfs/Software/Repo/ODM87/Fixes/DS/updates,/mnt/hgfs/Software/Repo/ODM87/Fixes/PTDS/updates

com.ibm.websphere.odm.ds.rules.v87_8.7.0.20141114_0949
com.ibm.websphere.odm.pt.rules.v87_8.7.0.20141114_1039
com.ibm.websphere.odm.ds.rules.v87_8.7.0.20141114_0949
com.ibm.websphere.odm.ds.rules.v87_8.7.1001.20151006_2017
com.ibm.websphere.odm.pt.rules.v87_8.7.0.20141114_1039
com.ibm.websphere.odm.pt.rules.v87_8.7.1001.20151007_0005

but to no avail.

I then switched back to an older version of WAS - 8.5.5.10 - and it just worked: -

/opt/ibm/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl -input /mnt/hgfs/Software/Repo/ResponseFiles/installODM87.rsp -acceptLicense

Installed com.ibm.websphere.odm.ds.rules.v87_8.7.1001.20151006_2017 to the /opt/ibm/ODM87 directory.
Installed com.ibm.websphere.odm.pt.rules.v87_8.7.1001.20151007_0005 to the /opt/ibm/ODM87 directory.

Interestingly, ODM 8.7.1 on WAS 8.5.5.11 is supported as per the System Requirements document, but I have something that works for me :-)

IBM WebSphere Liberty Profile - To Java or not to Java
Sat, Jan 21st 2017 9:39p   Dave Hay
One of my friends asked me about the implications of installing or not installing Java when one installs WebSphere Liberty Profile (WLP)This is what I told him ...It depends upon what you actually download and install. For example, I downloaded this: -IBM WebSphere Application Server Liberty Core V8.5.5 for Multiplatform Multilingual (installed using IBM Installation Manager) CIK2VMLfrom, as per this: -How to download WebSphere Application Server Liberty Core V8.5.5 from Passport Advantage Onli

WebSphere Developer Tools on macOS - It's been a while
Tue, Jan 17th 2017 3:18p   Dave Hay
I had a need to tinker with some Java in the context of WebSphere Application Server (WAS) Network Deployment (ND) 8.5.I'm using a Mac, with WAS ND 8.5.5.11 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 on VMware, as well as WebSphere Liberty Profile 8.5.59 on Docker natively on macOS. Having downloaded the latest and greatest Eclipse ( Neon ) from here ( actually from IBM Bluemix here ) I then dived across to the WebSphere Developer Tools page here: IBM WebSphere Application Server traditional V8.5x Develop

Interesting, WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5.11 and Java 6
Tue, Jan 10th 2017 1:36p   Dave Hay
I saw this: -ERROR: Support for using Java SE 6 with WebSphere Application Server ends in April 2018.Java SE 8 is the recommended Java SDK because it provides the latest features and security updates. You can continue to use Java SE 6, but no service can be provided after the end of support date, which could expose your environment to security risks.You must specify the default Java SDK version on the 'user.wasjava' property. To install the Java 8 SDK, specify '-properties user.wasjava=java8

Synology NAS - Where's my Unzip command gorn ?

I hit a wee snag earlier today, whilst attempting to unpack some IBM software on my NAS.Being a command-line junkie, I'd SSH'd into the box: -Synology NAS - From My Mac, Via SSHSynology NAS - Broke SSH but Telnet saved meSynology NAS - More SSH Loveliness - Permissions and ACLsand was attempting to use the unzip command, as per this example: -unzip ../../IIM18/agent.installer.linux.gtk.x86_64_1.8.5001.20161016_1705.zipwhich, alas, returned: --sh: unzip: command not foundThankfully, the Synolog

IBM BPM 8.5.7 - Key Assist ( or how do I do XXX ? )
Tue, Jan 10th 2017 9:18a   Dave Hay
I'm not sure if it's a mild case of CDO ( surely the letters ODC aren't in order ! ), but I was struggling to align some elements in a Business Process Definition.Thus, I was looking for the zoom controls, and stumbled across Key AssisThis is, of course, a feature of Eclipse, and I've written about similar capabilities in IBM NotesAnyway, here's the Key Assist panes for Process Designer ( I'm using 8.5.7 on Windows 7 )For the record, the zoom controls are right there :-)

IBM Business Process Manager 8.5.7 - Web Process Designer
Mon, Jan 9th 2017 3:57p   Dave Hay
This caught me out, albeit briefly.I'm using the very latest IBM BPM 8.5.7 with the December 2016 update, and am running through a tutorial: -Hiring Tutorial: Create the processOne thing that I noticed was that, even if I created the Process Application in the Eclipse-based Process Designer tool, I was still automatically directed to the web-based Process Designer tool when I created a new Process.I looked here: -Where to edit Process Designer artifactsand found this table: -which highlighted w

Following on from my earlier posts: -Synology NAS - From My Mac, Via SSHSynology NAS - Broke SSH but Telnet saved meI've gone a few steps further in my understanding.I've now got to a point where I can access the NAS using a user other than root or admin.Having created a new user via the Web UI ( DaveHay ) which was a member of the users and administrators groups, I went through the same steps as before: -Client-side ( macOS )Generate a public/private keyssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -f foobar -N
