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.

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.

~]# cd /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/
~]# ./imcl listAvailablePackages 
    -prompt or -masterPasswordFile /var/ibm/InstallationManager/master_password.txt
