Websphere upgrade example steps

ibm websphere

WAS6.0.0ND to WAS6.0.2.3ND

Install WAS6.0.0(AppServer,IHS,Plugin)
Create a Deployment manager profile in profile creation wizard and a custom profile in the same wizard.(Keep All Value Default)

Do not start anything (any node or node manager)(else upgradation will not be successful)
If by mistake you have started then go and stop them all use the following commands to stop them all.

1. /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/stopNode.sh -profileName Custom01
2. /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/stopManager.sh

Update to WAS6.0.2ND

Untar and copy the updateinstaller folders to /opt/IBM/Websphere/AppServer/ , /opt/IBM/IBMIHS/Updateinstaller, /opt/IBM/Websphere/plugin for WAS Appserver, IHS , Plugin respectively

Go to each of the updateinstaller folders from there run “./update” and update it

Once updation finishes rename all the folders like updateinstaller602ND to avoid over writting by WAS6023ND updateinstaller folder.

Upgradation to WAS

Copy all the extracted( use tar -xvf ) updateinstaller folders(WAS,IBMIHS,Plugin) to the respected folders
/opt/IBM/Websphere/AppServer/ , /opt/IBM/IBMIHS/Updateinstaller, /opt/IBM/Websphere/plugin

Run update in each folder
If any error like java is still running appears during updating then run the three commands to stop them.
1. /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/stopNode.sh -profileName Custom01
2. /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/stopManager.sh
3. ps -eaf | grep -i ibm
