IBM Tivoli 4.6 Installation on Linux HowTo – For Beginners

I finally finished the document I was working on describing the step by step instructions for installing ITIM 4.6 on Linux. This is a very simplified approach to installing ITIM and is realy just designed to get the system up and running quickly so that one can begin to learn how ITIM works. I found IBM's documentation to be a bit complex and in several areas it was unclear. On my test system I chose to install all the components needed (DB2, TDS, WAS, and ITIM) on one box just to make this as simple as possible.

Hopefully this helps someone out there who's just starting to learn Tivoli Identity Manager for the first time. I know I could have used it. You can get the PDF here --> {Link}

Hi Charles,

To say your guide has helped me would be a massive understatement so thanks a million for that!

I've installed
db2 8.2
tds 6.1
(was forced to install db2 9.1 along with it)
itim 4.6 fixpack 33

... on a Solaris 10 OS on 64 bit mode.

The DB2 instance I created was a 64 bit one(db2inst1)

During itim installation, I had to connect first to the database (database configuration screen)

I gave the same info as per your screenshot,
i.e. db name : itimdb
admin id:db2inst1

but it gives me an error...
java.sql.SQLException: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /opt/IBM/db2/V8.2/lib64/libdb2jdbc.so.1:ld.so.1:java:fatal: /opt/IBM/db2/V8.2/lib64/libdb2jdbc.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

I followed your guide to install TIM 4.6.Everything went fine and i am able login to the TIM 4.6 admin console even. But when i re-start the websphere and try to login its showing 'error connecting to DB2'. I tried sourcing the db2 profile but still i am not able to resolve the problem. Please help me on this .. I am breaking my head for the past 1 week on this issue..
