Joe: I have done one WebSphere install on 5.1. It was a mess. Basically from what I remember, there is a group PTF that needs to be installed BEFORE you load Websphere. Then load WebSphere, then reload the PTFs. As far as I remember, it will be a waste of time to try to "upgrade" your V4R5 config. Better to start over. We did get it working for a client though..... but a "three ring circus" is a nice name for it. Sometimes IBM does not make it easy. Also, the 3.5 CDs for Standard Websphere do not come with the 5.1 upgrade. You have to be sure you order them. (AS3). Also, from other info I have seen here on the list, the Standard version of WS will be drop and you will need to purchase the Advanced version. For that reason, we have been experimenting with Apache and Tomcat. cjg Carl J.

I've loaded WebSphere so many different ways over the last few releases that I can never remember what's the current way to do things. Here's what (I think) I know about V4R5: 1. You have to install the group PTFs for WebSphere. This gets you the QEJB library, among other things. 2. The adminclient is a different animal. The install instructions tell you to "load it from the media for your machine, for example, if your console is a Windows NT box, load the Windows NT media", or words to that effect. The point is that this media is what you get when you actually buy WebSphere other than for the iSeries. Unfortunately, this media is never sent as part of the base OS, or even as part of the group PTF. It seems this is an additional magic piece that you have to know to order. Am I correct here? 3. There was someplace on the IFS an area where the adminclient was located, and you could copy that down to your workstation. Does this ring a bell with anyone? In any event, I'm trying to get a client installed. We're getting closer, but it's really a three ring circus sometimes. Is this same procedure necessary on V5R1 as well?
