Step 1) Download Websphere Installer from the official IBM Site
There are two types of installers, BASE Edition and Network Deployment.Only Base Edition is available for trail. We can only create standalone servers with that.Network Deployment Installer comes with additional fetaures like Clustering. You can check the official Website for more details.
Step 2) Extract the installer
tar -pxvzf was.cd.7007.trial.base.opt.linux.ia32.tar.gz
Step 3) Create a responsefile.base.txt with the following content.
-OPT PROF_nodeName=node01 –
Step 4) Install with the following options
./install –options responsefile.base.txt -silent
Check the following location to verify that the installation went fine.
Normally it takes 10-15 minutes for the installation.
Step 5) Start the Server
$ ./startServer.sh server1
ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the AppSrv01 profile
ADMU3100I: Reading configuration for server: server1
ADMU3200I: Server launched. Waiting for initialization status.
ADMU3000I: Server server1 open for e-business; process id is 30162
Step 6) Access the console with credentials wasadmin/wasadmin

Hope u remember me, I was with Oracle Support.I am starting with WebSphere Application Server,
I was looking out WAS logs analyser concept.
How to generate a files similar to Thread Dump and Heap Dump in Weblogic with Websphere?
The steps to generate thread dump and heap dump is the same on WAS as it is on WLS.
When I try to run that I get following error (run as root and non root both):
bash: ./install: cannot execute binary file
To make sure that the installer does not have a compatibility issue I am downloading a trial version and will try to run installer from that as suggested by Andy.
Meanwhile if you get a chance please let me know if I am missing on something.
Thank you very much. It was very helpful for me to figure out the issues i were facing. Thanks a lot.
thanks for your feedback!!
I have to say that important sections of response file are missing. There is no line with accepting licence agreement, no type of server defined etc.
-OPT silentInstallLicenseAcceptance=”true” r “false”
you just add this line
Hi, this is a very nice example. and I was able to install WAS 7.0 easily. Thanks.
