You have it right Joe, We have installed it on 5.1 and 4.5 and it is pretty much a try it until you get it right approach. Even then, it was not very replicatable! Other than knowing that you have to order it. Hooking up the admin client took a while, but we also switch form the IBM Http Server to Apache and the directions they have are for the IBM one. There are differences in the setup. It nice to see the 400 finally catching up the the NT servers as far as EASE of installs...... ;-) john John Bussert Swift Technologies, Inc. www.swiftorder.com 847-289-8339 847-289-8939 (fax) email@example.com -----Original Message----- From: Joe Pluta [mailto:joepluta@PlutaBrothers.com] Sent: Thursday, January 03, 2002 1:23 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: RE: WebSphere Install First Time Thanks, Carl. I appreciate the input. This is similar to what I had heard. The thing I learned since my last post is that the adminclient software comes with the order of the 5733AS3 LPO. Even though it's a free product, it has to be separately ordered. My client is busy trying to get all those pieces in place. There is also indeed a place on the IFS where the adminclient resides: \QIBM\ProdData\WebASAdv\hosts\default_host\admin\install I don't have the exact instructions, but basically I think it boils down to unzipping the appropriate JAR file (AIX, NT or Sun) onto your workstation. Your info on the standard edition is also correct. As of version 4.0 of Websphere, there is no longer a standard edition. While not horrifically expensive, the $4000 for the Advanced Edition is hard to justify if you don't need EJB support. Since we don't require EJB, we're going to have a Tomcat version of our product available, probably by the end of the quarter. Joe > From: Carl Galgano > > I have done one WebSphere install on 5.1.
