IBM Installation Manager - List installed packages using the imcl listInstalledPackages command

Updated:   |  IBM Installation Manager articles

If you have not yet installed IBMs Installation Manager, check out our article on installing Installation Manager.

The imcl (Installation Manager command line tool) command with the listInstalledPackages option can be used to see what packages are installed. In this example, BASE and Java JDK are installed. In this example, the imcl command is located at /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl but you may have the imcl command located at some other directory.

~]# /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl listInstalledPackages
com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.6.20171205_1311
com.ibm.java.jdk.v8_8.0.5007.20171218_1035

 


Installation Directory

The -long option can be used to include the ${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT} directory in the output.

~]# /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl listInstalledPackages -long
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.6.20171205_1311
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer com.ibm.java.jdk.v8_8.0.5007.20171218_1035

 

Similarly, the -installationDirectory option can be used to only display the packages installed under a certain directory.

~]# /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl listInstalledPackages -installationDirectory /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer
com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.6.20171205_1311
com.ibm.java.jdk.v8_8.0.5007.20171218_1035

 


Verbose

The -verbose option can be used to append quite a bit of extra output, like this.

~]# /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl listInstalledPackages -verbose
