I am planning to install RRDI on RedHat Linux server.  I am finding conflicting information about whether WebSphere is required as a prerequisit and must be installed before attempting to complete the RRDI installation, or if the RRDI setup includes an application server?

RRDI installation doesnt come up with WebSphere App Server. At least that's what I remember. You need to download it and install it first.RRDI installation will asks you about some WebSphere info like the installation path and profile info,etc during configuration.

Remember that RRDI installation will asks you to choose 32bit or 64bit architecture installation. It should definitely mach your Websphere's architecture.

You might wanna check out youtube videos about RRDI's installation and configuration:

Hi Stephan,

First you can install the RRDI with Installation Manager and then you need to install WebSphere Application Server. After that you need to run the RRDI setup application (assuming windows environment, it should be there in the Start menu) which runs on Tomcat but you don't need the Tomcat running once your setup process is completed.

You can create a WAS profile for RRDI beforehand or from the RRDI setup itself.
Hope this helps!

Websphere is no longer included as part of the RRDI package as of v2 and needs to be installed separately.  Under the Downloads page under Optional Programs there is a trail-version of WebSphere you could download and try out with some limitations.
