What steps do I need to use scripting rather than GUI for deploying CLM to WAS?

In these steps I am assuming WAS is already installed.

I first downloaded the CLM Web Installer file and extracted the contents to a location on disk:
I went to
using my account

I extracted the zip file as described here:
and did a cd into ExtractedDir/im/linux.gtx.x86

I first then installed Installation Manager via cmd line:
.\userinstc -silent -showVerboseProgress -nosplash -acceptLicense

I had to edit the silent-install-server.xml file in ExtractedDir/im/linux.gtx.x86:
to point the Installation Manager to the repository that you extracted for CLM 4.0.6:
<repository location='/tmp/IBM/Rational/JTS-CCM-QM-RM-repo-4.0.6' temporary='true' />

I changed the following lines to install for a WAS setup and extract the files to the right location:
<data key='' value='false'/>
<data key='' value='true'/>
<!-- specify where to install WAR files if noappserver.disable above is false -->
<data key='user.JazzFoundationServer.NoAppServer.WebApps.InstallLocation'
and saved the silent-install-server.xml file.

the directory /opt/IBM/websphere/JazzTeamServer-4.0.6/server/webapps should be empty!

I installed CLM via cmd line using the silent-install-server.xml respinse file.
The resulting files can be zipped or moved later.

.\userinstc -dataLocation /tmp/silent-install/data -silent -showVerboseProgress -nosplash -input silent-install-server.xml -acceptLicense

All the war files are ready to deploy in /opt/IBM/websphere/JazzTeamServer-4.0.6/server/webapps

I could then run the deploy script that ships with CLM.
For example:
./ -language jython -user wsadmin -password wsadmin
-f /opt/websphere/IBM/JazzTeamServer-4.0.5/server/was/ 
Node01 server1 /opt/IBM/websphere/JazzTeamServer-4.0.6/server/webapps

If you need the applications to be deployed with a different context root then please see the following article.

There is also an article explaining how to run the server setup steps from command line:

I hope this helps,
