03_WASv7_CIM.ppt Page 4 of 23 IBM Software Group 4 Centralized Installation Manager © 2008 IBM Corporation CIM functions s Remote product installation U Use deployment manager to install on remote hosts U No IBM agent required on remote host s Remote product update U Download refresh packs, fix packs, and interim fixes from IBM support Web site s Directly from the administrative console U Apply maintenance to cell members The Centralized Installation Manager introduces support for remote installation functionality in WebSphere Application Server V7. The deployment manager can be used as a central interface for installing WebSphere Application Server to remote hosts and integrating them into a cell. These remote hosts do not require any IBM software to be present before installation, as the installation is performed using operating system tools. In addition to installing WebSphere Application Server, the V7 deployment manager also has the ability to remotely install fix packs, refresh packs, and interim fixes on remote nodes that have been added to the cell. Fixes can be downloaded from IBM directly within the deployment manager’s administrative console and remotely installed to member nodes.

You can easily install WebSphere Application Server to your entire cell from a single interface in parallel, which not only saves time by avoiding a repetitive process, but also makes it easier to ensure that you are specifying the same installation options on each of your hosts. The deployment manager interface accepts standard response files, just like the traditional installer uses, enabling you to specify all of the same parameters when installing with the Centralized Installation Manager.
