Mike,

Thanks for clearing the cobwebs out of my brain. We had discussed this in a previous ticket and I forgot.

It appears to be a problem with the latest version of IM (which is 1.9.4 I think). Once I uninstalled everything and deleted all the remnants I did a fresh install using the user install application (userinst) from the 9.6 install image (InstallerImage_macosx_cocoa_x86_64). This installs IM 1.8.7. RDi was installed at 9.6.0.9.

iSphere installed just fine from Marketplace after that.

Hi Matt,

On Catalina you will want to do the User (not the default Admin) install
using the IM that comes in the full installer for RDI. I have found that
this seems to work best. The newer IM's *should* work but I have seen
issues with them. So for now I would say use the shipped IM for best
results. Also, install into the default user location
(/Users/your-user-dir/IBM/*) so that your userid has total read-write
control over all the files. After this i Sphere should install from the
Eclipse Marketplace with no issues - at least it did for me.

The RDI installer is quite a few years old now and was made for Mac OS X
Sierra IIRC and Catalina changes things significantly. Right now Big Sur
is a no-go unless you want to do a non-GUI command line install and I don't
know anyone who has succeeded at this so far ;)

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [WDSCI-L] iSphere plugin install failure
Sent by: "WDSCI-L" <wdsci-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>



I am trying to install the iSphere plug-in (3.8.0.r) into my RDi (9.6.0.9)
on my MAC (Catalina 10.15.7). I have been having a tough time trying to get
RDi working again after I upgraded to 9.6.0.9. I had to completely remove
RDi and Installation manager at one point – I found out that I needed to do
a user install. I seem to have it working now, but that is all in the past.
The problem now is that I can’t get iSphere to install.

My current messages are about dependencies not being met:

Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be
found.
Software being installed: iSphere Job Log Explorer for RDi 8.0+ (optional)
3.8.0.r (biz.isphere.joblogexplorer.rse.feature.group 3.8.0.r)
Missing requirement: iSphere Job Log Explorer for RDi 8.0+ (optional)
3.8.0.r (biz.isphere.joblogexplorer.rse.feature.group 3.8.0.r) requires
'biz.isphere.core.feature.group [3.8.0.r]' but it could not be found

That in itself seems strange since it looks to be a part of iSphere….
The update site I am using is
http://isphere.sourceforge.net/eclipse/rdi8.0/


I have also tried to install it from the Eclipse Marketplace, but I am
getting a certificate error just getting to Marketplace:

com.ibm.jsse2.util.h: PKIX path building failed:
com.ibm.security.cert.IBMCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid
certification path to requested target

I have even manually added the root and intermediate certificates to the
cacerts key file
(in /Users/mwh001/IBM/SoftwareDeliveryPlatform/jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/security

), but get the same results. I have a ticket open with IBM and have been
working with them for a while, but I thought I could ask here as well to
see if anyone has suggestions.

Now even install new software to the sourceforge site is getting the
certificate error… ☹
