Abstract: One of the more significant changes introduced with WebSphere on z/OS Version 8 is the use of Installation Manager to create the runtime executable code. This function was previously completed by the System Modification Program Extended (SMPE). This paper will provide a “cookbook” approach to the customization for use of Installation Manager for z/OS, and the use of it to complete the installation of WebSphere on z/OS Version 8 and its associated products.

In short, this will involve the following steps:
1. Creation of the Installation Manager using the Installation Manager toolkit.
2. Creation of the WebSphere on z/OS V8 filesystem components on a /Service mountpoint.
3. Using the Installation Manager to populate the filesystem.
4. A discussion of a suggested method for properly handling the installation of maintenance.
Updated to include some information on WebSphere V8.5, use of features, and proper use of proxy servers.
