This assumes you have already used IBM's Installation Manager to install the cumulative fix.
- IBM Installation Manager - Install using imcl install command
- IBM Installation Manager - Install using imcl input command (response.xml)
Refer to IBM Portal - Configuring wkplc.properties for the steps on how to configure the workplace properties file (wkplc.properties) so that applyCF.sh can make a connection to Portal.
The applyCF.sh script will open a large number of files. The recommendation is to have the open files limit set to 200,000 open files, or more. Refer to Linux Commands - ulimit to set the open files limit to 200,000 or greater. Note that the limit must be set on both the deployment manager and the node servers.
The applyCF.sh script is used to install the cumulative fix.
- Refer to IBM Portal - wkplc.properties PortalAdminPwd to determine -DPortalAdminPwd
- Refer to IBM Portal - wkplc.properties WasPassword to determine -DWasPassword
/opt/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/<your profile>/PortalServer/bin/applyCF.sh -DPortalAdminPwd=<password> -DWasPassword=<password>
If the build is successful, something like this should be displayed.
