ITIM Middleware Configuration Tool

Trying to use the ITIM Middleware configuration tool with an already installed version of TDS, I kept getting the following error:

CTGIMP555W A supported version of the product IBM Tivoli Directory Server, was not found on this machine. The minimum supported version is or The found version is unknown. Please refer to the online documentation for more information about the supported versions. You can cancel this configuration program or skip configuring this product.

After a little investigation, I found that by default, the middleware configuration tool doesn’t seem to look for V6.3 installation:

Checking for directory /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.2
Checking for directory /opt/IBM/ldap/V6.2
Checking for directory /opt/ibm/ldap/V6.1
Checking for directory /opt/IBM/ldap/V6.1

Although this may also have been an issue with the fact that I had the V6.1 client installed for TAM.

Anyway, a quick fix to make the tool work with the installed version, is to follow the directions specified:

CTGIMP557I You may override the installation directory for product IBM Tivoli Directory Server by cancelling this configuration program and then running this configuration program again followed by the option: “-W ITIMRSP.idsInstalledDir=directory”.

Such that the tool can be run with the following command:

./cfg_itim_mw_xLinux -W ITIMRSP.idsInstalledDir=/opt/ibm/ldap/V6.3/
