If you have not installed IBM Installation Manager, install IBM Installation Manager

There are multiple ways to install IBM Support Assistant:

  • GUI
  • Command Line - from IBM HTTP repository
  • Command Line - from local repository
  • Command Line - Response file

 


List the available packages. Your IBM username and password will be stored in a secure storage file, which is usually located at /var/ibm/InstallationManager/secure_storage. If you have not yet created the secure storage file, you can use the -prompt option to create the secure storage file. Or, you can manually create the secure storage file. The secure storage file will be protected by a master password. If you use the -prompt option, you will need to type in the master password. Or, you can created the master_password.txt file and store the master password in the master_password.txt.
