Installing IBM® WebSphere® Application Server

To prepare for installing IBM® Connections, install IBM® WebSphere® Application Server on the Deployment Manager and nodes, then configure them with the settings needed for Connections.

Before you begin

Restriction: If you plan to install Connections Content Manager as part of this deployment, make sure that you do NOT configure WebSphere Application Server to use Java 8 now. Switching to Java 8 must be done after completing Connections installation and all other post-installation tasks.
