My colleague wanted to install maximo7 with WAS/DB2 on his XP box because we have poor win2003 server boxes but have some powerful XP workstations. I believe both WAS and DB2 supports XP for testing purpose though MWI(maximo middleware installer) deny install them. We never would like to configure manually WAS dmgr, nodeagent, appserver, JMS definitions, and so on. We just did them like followings.
- copy DVD image on the harddrive.
- edit \Install\MWI\DeploymentPackage\DeploymentSteps\MWI_7.1_Prereqs\check\01_CHECKS\package\multios\META-INF\packagedIU.xml
<pattern>Windows 2003</pattern> -> <pattern>Windows XP</pattern>
- that's it.
