Installing WebSphere Portal 8 Beta 2 on Windows – How2


David Wilkerson

Davalen, CTO, David Wilkerson took some time out to put together a very informative and amazing article about how to install WebSphere Portal 8 Beta 2 on a Windows machine. 

 

 

 

 

I had a few minutes the other day and decided to check out using the IBM Installation Manager to install the beta for IBM WebSphere Portal 8. Here is my own flavor of the install guide:

To install WebSphere Portal Express and IBM Content Manager Beta on a Windows 32 bit operating system you will need the following files: WAS8-1.zip, WAS8-2.zip, WP8-1.zip, and WP8-2.zip. For other platforms consider the following table:

File size File name Description
1.1 Gb W AS8-1.zip IBM WebSphere Application Sever Network Deployment Trial v8.0.0.1 Part 1
1.7 Gb W AS8-2.zip IBM WebSphere Application Sever Network Deployment Trial v8.0.0.1 Part 2
1.4 Gb WP8-1.zip IBM WebSphere Portal Beta v8 Core Repository files + IBM Installation Manager
500 Mb WP8-2.zip IBM DB2 v9.7 on Windows 32bit
868 Mb WP8-3.zip IBM DB2 v9.7 on Linux x86 32bit
597 Mb WP8-4.zip IBM DB2 v9.7 on Windows 64bit
927 Mb WP8-5.zip IBM DB2 v9.7 on Linux x86 64bit

At the time this document was composed the files could be obtained from a download link at:https://www14.software.ibm.com/iwm/web/cc/earlyprograms/lotus/portalopenbeta/download.shtml Note that the download site also includes files for a VMWare instance.
