Download Installation Manager from IBM Fix Central. Let's say that agent.installer.linux.gtk.x86_64_1.8.5000.20160506_1125.zip is downloaded. Make a directory for Installation Manager.

~]# mkdir /opt/IM

 

Unzip the package. This probably will need to be done as root, to prevent Permission Denied errors. The -d option is used to unzip the package to the /opt/IM directory. IM is short for Installation Manager.

~]# unzip agent.installer.linux.gtk.x86_64_1.8.5000.20160506_1125.zip -d /opt/IM

 

Use the installc command to install Installation Manager using the root user account. When installed as root, only root will be allowed to use Installation Manager. In this example, Installation Manager is installed at /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/.

[root ~]# cd /opt/IM
[root ~]# ./installc -acceptLicense -showProgress

 

Use the userinstc command to install Installation Manager as non-root user. When installed as a non-root user, only root and the user that installed Installation Manager will be allowed to use Installation Manager. In this example, Installation Manager is installed by john.doe at /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/.

[john.doe ~]# cd /opt/IM
[john.doe ~]# ./userinstc -acceptLicense

 

The following command can be used to verify that Installation Manager was installed.

~]# cd /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools
~]# ./imcl listInstalledPackages
com.ibm.cic.agent_version
