Introduction

This method presumes you are connected to a network drive which has a WebSphere Everyplace Access (WEA) build available (or are alternatively installing from CDs. If using the CD method, you will be prompted to change the media when required). This process describes the use of Setup Manager, which installs WEA. It includes the installation of Java, DB2, WebSphere Application Server (WAS), the WAS fixpack 4, the Portal Server, portlets, WEA Core Services, the Device Manager Server, Everyplace Synchronization Server, and the Intelligent Notification Services, Location Aware Services, etc.

When using Setup Manager without the use of the keyboard (for accessibility), choosing a radio button involves using the "Tab" key to go to the appropriate field, and pressing the space bar to select that field.  For selecting check boxes, use the tab and arrow keys to move to the appropriate  position, then press the space bar to "check" the box. Also, in the following sections, when instructed to "select" or "click", use the tab key to go to the appropriate field, then press the "Enter" key.


Setup Manager Logging

When installing, logs are created in the folder "*:/Program Files/IBMWEA". This includes 2 files "setup<randomstringofnumbers>", where "randomstringofnumbers" is a string of digits (i.e. "setup_05.11.17.27.log"). The first setup log file is created by Setup Manager and will reflect the initial logging done by Setup Manager. After the installation of DB2, you must reboot/restart the machine, which will result in the creation of a second log for logging the remainder of the installation. Within each of the "setup<datestamp>.log>" file, there will be references to "command" files, which are the result of the execution of Setup Manager operations (i.e. located in "*:\Program Files\IBMWEA\RunCommand_05.11.17.27"). These files are more details of the operation and/or failure of a particular components installation. Sections of the "setup<randomstringofnumbers>" file are followed by a "0", reflecting the success of an operation, or a "1", reflecting the failure. When troubleshooting, occasionally the root cause of an error can be traced back to previous failures, so you cannot always assume the last problem found was the main culprit.

Once Setup Manager is completed and you click the "Finish" button, these log files are zipped into a file that contains all associated files for this installation.
 
A word of advice from the author. Avoid going backward from a panel to previous panels. Doing so can be unhealthy. If you go back, you might as well stop Setup Manager and invoke it again.


Installation Preparation

Before installation of WEA with ESS, you must have the Notes Client and Microsoft Outlook installed on your machine (see ESS Prerequisite Software Installation )

If installing from CDs, simply put in the first CD and the Setup Manager will automatically start.

In all examples and steps that follow, the double quote (") is used to reflect a panel name, input field, or value that should be input, and is not to be entered as part of the value.

Installing from networked CD images

1)   Map a drive to machine "bambam" (i.e. "net use * \\bambam.raleigh.ibm.com\software /u:wpsadmin").  The username is wpsadmin and the password is pvc1pvc.

2)   Go to \wea43\cd1 and double-click "install.bat" to start setup manager.

(Note if you use the networked image, after DB2 installation reboot, you will have to map the drive again and will be prompted by Setup Manager to select it)

During installation, progress will be displayed on the DOS window you started the install on.

Installation Details

At the point DB2 is installed a popup will be displayed telling you to reboot your machine. Do it. After you reboot, the installation will continue.

After several minths a popup "Configuring for Admin Role" will appear.  Before performing these instructions it is necessary to apply an APAR fix for WAS on the machine. Follow the instructions in the section "Installation for Expiring WAS Certificates". Then follow the "Configuring for Admin Role" instructions before you continue with the installation of the software. When you are through with the configuring for admin role, be sure to click OK in the Configuring for Admin Role popup. You will be queried as to whether you want to perform the steps, as you already have, click "No". The installation will then continue.
 

Wait a month, and eventually an "Installation Complete" popup should be displayed stating you should restart your machine, click "OK". In the Display Summary window, click "Finish", and then restart your machine.  Once you restart your machine you will need to perform the operations in the section Starting WEA and if you choose, you can test your installation by performing the operations in the Testing The Installation section.
 

WEA And Component Logs

Most of the WEA components have associated WAS application servers, directory structure, and associated log(s) directories. A plethora of logs exist by default and additional logging can be turned on via configuration/parameter adjustments. Each application server has an

WAS logs are in *:\WebSphere\AppServer\logs", "tracefile" being the most informative for normal operation

WEA logs are in *



Installation for Expiring WAS Certificates

1)  The install will proceed and at some point during the "Portal Server" installation a pop-up will appear that asks you to configure the Admin Role.  Normally we would execute these instructions right away, but since the WAS security ceriticates expired on Jan. 15, 2004, we now have to install PQ77261 during every WEA installation at this point because the WAS Admin Server will not start without them.

2)   When the "Configuring the Admin Role" pop-up appears, using Windows Explorer (or DOS commands if you wish), in the folder "C:\WebSphere\AppServer" create a new folder "CertFix".

3)   We will now download the PQ77261 fix to our new folder.  The fix has been placed on pvcsvr.  From a DOS prompt, change to the new folder, and type “ftp pvcsvr.raleigh.ibm.com” and press enter.  Login as username “ftpuser” and password “pvc1pvc”.

4)   Type “cd Software/WAS_Cert_Fix” and press enter.  Type “ls” and press enter to display the files in this directory.  We want to retrieve “PQ77261_Fix.jar”.

5)   Type “bin” and press enter to change to binary mode.

6)   Type “get PQ77261_Fix.jar” and press enter.  The transfer should complete successfully.

7)   Exit the FTP utility. You should be in “C:\WebSphere\AppServer\CertFix” and have "PQ77261_Fix.jar" in this folder.

8)   Type "(correct java)\java -jar PQ77261_Fix.jar -backupJar PQ77261_backup.jar" and press enter.

9)   The fix install program will prompt you for a target directory.  Type "c:\WebSphere\AppServer" and press enter.  You should see the message "*** End of PQ77261 Install Process *** with no errors."

10)   We must now and start WAS (Windows "Start", "Programs", "IBM WebSphere", "Application Server V4.0", and click on "Start Admin Server").

11) Return to normal installation (perform Admin Config steps).

Testing The Installation

At this point WEA and associated software should be installed, but WAS and your applications will need to be started.

1)  Start the "IBM SecureWay Directory V3.2.2" service.

2)  Start the "IBM WS AdminServer 4.0" service.

3)  Start the WebSphere Administration Console (Windows "Start", "Programs", "IBM WebSphere", "Application Server V4.0", and click on "Administrator's Console"), and when queried for authentication, use the value "wpsadmin" for the ID and "wpsadm1n" for the password. (Note: if you had left the Admin Console running after performing the steps in "Configuring for Admin Role", you still have a snapshot of the configuration of WES/WAS at that point. Refreshing the Admin Console will not show you the remaining applications that were installed after the configuration was performed. To see these applications you must exit the Admin Console and restart it. Logon using ID/Password of "wpsadmin/wpsadm1n").

Steve:  Apparently during the installation process the Security Center password was changed from the value input ("wpsadmin") to "wpsbind". Dont know why!

4)  To verify the installation and operation of WebSphere Application Server, scope down to "WebSphere Administrative Domain", "Nodes", (yournodename), "Application Servers", select "Default Server", right mouse click and select "Start". Once the Default Server has started you should be able to run the "snoop" servlet by using your favorite browser and browsing the url "http://localhost/servlet/snoop". The userid and password for accessing servlets is "wpsadmin/wpsadm1n".

5)  To verify the installation of WEA, use the url "http://localhost/wps/portal" (or alternatively your machinename, i.e.. "http://stup1d.raleigh.ibm.com/wps/portal") to run the "World Clock" portlet. When you are queried for an ID/Password, use "wpsadmin/wpsadm1n".

6)  To login to the WebSphere Everyplace Access using the "portal" portlet, click on the key icon (to logon) on the upper right corner of the web page. For the User ID and Password, enter the value "wpsadmin/wpsadm1n", and click the "Log In".

If the snoop servlet and portal portlet both work your installation was (probably) successful.
 
 

Restarting WebSphere Everyplace Access

There are often more than one way to stop and start WEA and it's associated components, i.e. the Windows "Services" utility, from Windows menu bar "Start", "Programs", etc, or from the DOS command prompt. The following simply uses the Windows "Services" utility.

Stopping WEA

From the Windows "Services" utility, if desired/necessary, stop the "IBM Everyplace Synchronization Server", the "IBM WS Admin Server", and then the "IBM SecureWay Directory V3.2.2".


Starting WEA

First start the "IBM Directory Server", then "IBM WS Admin Server". Once these servers have been started you can optionally start the "IBM Everyplace Synchronization Server". You can also start the INS services (i.e "Windows "Start", "Programs", "IBM Intelligent Notification Services", and click on "Start Administration Component", wait for it to start, and then start "StartHA" ("Windows "Start", "Programs", "IBM Intelligent Notification Services", and click on "StartHA"). To start the remaining INS servers, you must logon to the WEA portal as administrator, select the "Intelligent Notification" tab, and in that portlet click "Run all servers".

(alternatively)

For ESS, you can, from a DOS command prompt, go to folder "*:\WebSphere\IBMSyncServer\caf\bin" and execute the command "esscmd init", and that DOS window will remain a "logging" window for ESS server operations.

For INS, you can, from a DOS prompt, go to folder "*:\WebSphere\INS\bin" and execute the command "startADM" giving the machine name as a parameter (i.e. "startADM stup1d"), and from another DOS window prompt, in the same folder (*:\WebSphere\INS\bin"), execute the command "startHA". Test will also become logging windows for these server's operation. To start the remaining INS servers, you must logon to the WEA portal as administrator, select the "Intelligent Notification" tab, and in that portlet click "Run all servers".

At this point you should be able to configure and operate all WEA components.
 
 

ESS Prerequisite Software Installation

Backend servers used in the following:  Exchange 5.5, Exchange 2000, and Domino 6.5.1, and require the appropriate client to be on the WEA machine for access to the backend servers.

Obtain Outlook 2000 Software

(From sdsmsrv)

1) Create a temporary folder on your computer to copy the software to.

2) Connect to a network drive that has the software on it (i.e. "net use *  \\sdsmsrv\software").

3) Change directories to "yourdrive:\IBM\office2k". Copy the file "office2k_ISDS_EA" to your temporary folder.

4) Double click the "office2k_ISDS_EA" file, which will extract the Office 2k files.
