Installing Lotus Connections 2.0.1 Fixpack ... not very wizardly
Having identified the LC2011 fixpack as a potential solution to a problem I was having; the message: -
Please wait while the topics are loading...
is displayed ad infinitum when viewing a Community, even though the separate Forum link on the left-hand sidebar works perfectly.
I downloaded the Update Installer from here and the fix pack from here.
Having expanded the Update Installer to /opt/IBM/WebSphere/LotusConnections/update and having copied the 250 Mb update ( LC2011_Fixpack.jar ) to /opt/IBM/WebSphere/LotusConnections/update/fixpacks, I tried to install the fixpack via the Wizard ( updateLCWizard.sh ).
Sadly, it failed to find the fixpack even though I led it by the hand through my path to the correct directory :-(
Thankfully, Luis Benitez had the answer ( as he usually does ), which is to avoid the Wizard for fixpacks and, instead, use the command line option instead: -
[root@connectionsdemo ~]# . /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/bin/setupCmdLine.sh
[root@connectionsdemo ~]# ./updateLC.sh -fixpack -installDir /opt/IBM/WebSphere/LotusConnections -fixpackDir /opt/IBM/WebSphere/LotusConnections/update/fixpacks -install -fixpackID LC2011_Fixpack -wasUserID cadmin -wasPassword passw0rd
As my frolleague, Chris Moore, would say ... "That's the badger!"
PS Did the fix pack resolve my issue with forum topics ? No, but that's another story.
