IBM Lotus Quickr for WebSphere Portal 8.5

leave a comment »

A project underway this week involves an install of the Quickr product for WebSphere Portal. I did one of the earliest deployments of 8.5 a while back for a customer in Canada. The install process is highly scripted and this can be a blessing and a curse. What I like about the script is the reduced effort required to complete the install. What I do not like is that there are no stopping points where a snapshot might be taken to preserve the state of the install. Some of the tasks are very long running and when the process is highly scripted several hours may transpire before a failure occurs due to an error in the underlying environment. Because the install is scripted, the entire process must be repeated once the underlying issue is resolved.
