Important note to Web Services Feature Pack users

If the Web Services Feature Pack is installed on your system, you must also download the Web Services Feature Pack Fix Pack 47. This must be done after applying Group SF99364 for V7R1 or SF99353 for V6R1, but before running the update script. The Update Installer will not allow the installation to proceed without the Web Services Feature Pack Fix Pack 47 in the maintenance directory.

When upgrading WebSphere Application Server and Web Services Feature Pack for Application Server, as well as Application Client products to version 6.1.0.47 or higher level, a mandatory Interim Fix must be installed prior to the installation of Fix Pack 6.1.0.47 or higher. The Update Installer will not allow you to upgrade WebSphere Application Server and Web Services Feature Pack to version 6.1.0.47 without first installing these Interim Fixes.

Important note to EJB 3.0 Feature Pack users

If the EJB 3.0 Feature Pack is installed on your system, you must also download the EJB 3.0 Feature Pack Fix Pack 47. This must be done after applying Group SF99364 for V7R1 or SF99353 for V6R1, but before running the update script. The Update Installer will not allow the installation to proceed without the Web Services Feature Pack Fix Pack 47 in the maintenance directory.

Example:
