Updating IBM Installation Manager

Peter Turvey (9917) | asked Aug 09 '18, 6:54 a.m.

I am trying to update the Installation Manager from v1.8.4 to v1.8.9 on a Server that does not have Internet access.

I downloaded "" and unzipped the files.

I then ran up the old Installation Manager v1.8.4 and tried to "Add Repository" at "agent.installer.win32.win32.x86_64_1.8.9000.20180313_1417\repository.config". But I got an error saying that it is not a repository, it is an install package.

If I do as it suggests and run "Install.exe" instead does this remove the old v1.8.4 version of Installation Manager? Will this new v1.8.9 know about the packages that I have installed in the past  (JTS 6.0.2 etc.) ?

Thanks    Peter

 Hi Peter!

It's not necessary to remove or uninstall the old one. You have just to rename the main folder of the old IM to something like InstallationManager_OLD, or any name you want. And then install the new version using the same (old) path. I did it so many times and it works well.
