OIM Installation On WAS/AIX Fails With java.io.IOException On wsadmin.file (Doc ID 971750.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 10, 2019

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version 9.1.0.1 and later
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)

Goal

This document describes the steps to complete the installation on IBM WebSphere running on AIX OS.

There have been seen cases where the installation of OIM on IBM WebSphere running on AIX OS, fails with the following exceptions in the installation log file:

BUILD FAILED
file:/myPathToOIM/xellerate/setup/websphere-setup.xml:395: Execute failed:
java.io.IOException:
/myPathToWas/profiles/myprofile/bin/${wsadmin.file}: not found
at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.ExecTask.runExec(ExecTask.java:371)
at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.ExecTask.execute(ExecTask.java:250)
at org.apache.tools.ant.Task.perform(Task.java:341)
at org.apache.tools.ant.Target.execute(Target.java:309)
at org.apache.tools.ant.Target.performTasks(Target.java:336)
at org.apache.tools.ant.Project.executeTarget(Project.java:1339)
at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.Ant.execute(Ant.java:397)
at org.apache.tools.ant.Task.perform(Task.java:341)

This exception is caused because the ${wsadmin.file}variable is not resolved to the actual file name.
The root cause is that the InstallShield engine does not detect the operating system as being AIX, so the file:

OIM_HOME/xellerate/Profiles/websphere.profile

The property is set as:
os.type=Linux
