Unable to see all the folders in the \HTTPServer\Plugins installation of the IHS.

We have done a new installation of IHS 7 on our CLM server. When I see the installation package, inside the \IBM\HTTPServer\Plugins folder, there are just 3 sub-folders.


However, there should be the below mentioned folders which should get installed when we install the HTTP Server in the HTTPServer\Plugins directory.


Any ideas as to why the other folders are not visible ?

PS: We have seen this behavior couple of times earlier as well, but we have not reported it.

First of all make sure that you have installed "Web server Plug-ins for IBM WebSphere Application Server" - this is an installation separate from the IHS base installation. If you have installed it, then take a look at /IBM/WebSphere/Plugins - the location seems to be changed for newer versions (correct for my WAS 8.5 installation).

Hi Donanld,

I am using IHS v7 and WAS v7.0.0.23. Are there any additional plugins to be installed for the earlier installations ?

The plugin is a separate component ever since WAS 6.0, I think. So you will have to install something called "plugin". If you have multiple CDs/packages, check the supplement packages and see what you can install.
