  1. To get the latest updates for the wizard, apply the most recent Combined Cumulative Fix. For more information about applying the latest fix pack, see HCL Digital Experience Combined Cumulative Fix Fix Strategy.
    Note: Skip this step, if you have the most recent fix pack applied.
  2. Optional: Restart server1 to ensure that the Configuration Wizard uses the updated environment variables. Go to AppServer_home/profiles/cw_profile/bin and stop the server:
    • AIX® HP-UX Linux Solaris: ./ server1 -username username -password password
    • IBM® i: stopServer cw_profile -username username -password password
    • Windows: stopServer.bat server1 -username username -password password
    Then, start the server:
    • AIX® HP-UX Linux Solaris: ./ server1
    • IBM® i: startServer cw_profile
    • Windows: startServer.bat server1
  3. Access the Configuration Wizard. Go to http://your_server/hcl/wizard.
