IBM Operational Decision Manager 8.7.0.0 and IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5.11 - Perhaps Not BFFs
Twitter Google+ Facebook LinkedIn Addthis Email Gmail Flipboard Reddit Tumblr WhatsApp StumbleUpon Yammer Evernote Delicious
   

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 :-)

So I had a weird experience last evening, and not in a good way.For no apparent reason, this was my Apple Watch: -and this: -I have no earthly idea what happened.So, being a true nerd, and a big fan of The IT Crowd, I decided to ( all together now ) TURN IT OFF AND ON AGAIN ….Obviously I couldn't read the display, what with it being all garbled n' all, so I just hit the big button on the right-hand side, below the digital crown and chose the appropriate gibberish - it was the one in red, so

Jenkins to Git - SSH says "No"
Fri, Oct 13th 2017 10:28a   Dave Hay
As per my earlier post: -Learning Times - Or Git being a bit of a GitI'm on a voyage of discovery with Jenkins and Git.Whilst trying to plumb onto into t'other, I was hitting a blocker.To recap, I have Jenkins installed on my MacBook, running locally, and I have Git running on a Docker container on a remote Mac.Therefore, I'm connecting to the remote Git repository using SSH rather than, say, HTTPS or a local file-system.This works OK for me using Git commands such as: -git clone ssh://git@19

Whilst on the subject of IBM HTTP Server (IHS), as per an earlier post: -IBM HTTP Server - Tinkering with CMS Keystore PasswordsI was "auditing" the SSL certificate that I'm using for IHS, specifically the signature algorithm.So I have a single certificate in the key store: -/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/gskcapicmd -cert -list -db /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/APIC/ssl/keystore.kdb -pw passw0rdCertificates found* default, - personal, ! trusted, # secret key*- wlpn.uk.ibm.comwhich I validated as follows: -/op
