I ran Installation Manager last week and it came up with an update: IBM SDK for Node.js 1.1.0.4 for Cordova tools ........ Is this really for RPG and COBOL tools?

subject: [WDSCI-L] Installation Manager

I thought I would open IBM Installation Manager to see if a patch has
been released for RDi 9.1. After asking for my secure storage password,
it just sits at "Check repository
https://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/entitled...";. I never
get a message saying that no updates are available. It seems stuck.

Anyone experienced this and have a fix? If I enter a bad password for
the secure storage it tells me. It may have the wrong password stored
for my IBM account. Would it tell me if those stored credentials were
wrong?

Can you uninstall IBM Installation Manager without breaking RDi? I'd
hate to have to uninstall and re-install EVERYTHING just to fix
Installation Manager.

I just tried it with IM 1.7.2. It did some searching for about 2
minutes and then told me there's a new version of IM. No surprise
there. So I let IM update itself. Now, at 1.7.3, I tried 'Update'
again. It did some searching and after a couple of minutes came up to
the page where I could choose which package group to update. I chose
SDP 9.1 and it found 2 Java updates, which I Let it install.

I've gone to the IM web page and installed the (at the time) latest
version of IM before starting to install RDi, but I can't say I've ever
uninstalled IM. I assume that you'd have to manually configure the
various repositories...
