Installing the IBM Tivoli Integration Composer

This article will help you install the IBM Tivoli Integration Composer. As usual we will use SLES 11 SP3 as an installation OS. We used 6 gigabyte of RAM, 2 CPU cores and 50 gigabytes of disk space in this scenario.

Start the installation from /Install/ITIC/setup.bin command from the IBM Control Desk root installation directory. You need to have java installed in order to be able to start the installation process. We recommend to use the java that is supplied with Control Desk and it is located in /app/IBM/SMP/sdk/ directory in our environment.
