Upgrade RRDI without having to go through the setup wizard

Is there a way to manually upgrade RRDI without having to go through the setup wizard.  I have found the setup wizard to be problematic, especially if you have a distributed environment?  Or at least find out what the setup wizard is doing.

Hello Matthew,

unfortunately for RRDI 2.X we only supports the setup application as installation/upgrade method.

You can see how the manual install procedure looked like in 1.X here, however this procedure is not going to work for 2.X:

Another thing that you can do to get a better idea of what the setup application is doing, especially when there are failures, is to enable the trace logs:

Is there going to be any support to support SSL through the Setup Wizard.  For instance being able to use port 443 instead of the default port of 9080 in a WAS configuration?

Hello Matthew,

as you correctly state at the moment RRDI doesn't support installations or upgrades with SSL enabled.

see Disabling SSL on the report server

As I'm not aware of any plan to change this in the future, I would suggest opening a Request for Enhancement (RFE) for this feature on the IBM RFE Community: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/support/rational/rfe/
