In some cases you need to install FEB (Forms Experience Builder) into a WebSphere environment which is running as a non-Root user (for security reasons).
In this cases Installation Manager is installed using the user-based (non-Root) installation which is not supported for FEB and some other applications.
It is possible to switch the installation mode by customize following files:
Change -accessRights from “nonAdmin” to “Admin”
Change “property name=’accessRights’ value=’nonAdmin’/>” to “property name=’accessRights’ value=’admin’/>”
After this you only need to copy the InstallationManager.dat from the installation user to the root home directory. You will find this file in <userHome>/etc/.ibm/registry/.
Now you are able to install FEB using the root user or using “su -c”.
If you use a non-Root WebSphere installation you need to “chmod” the FEB Installation and FEB Appserver directory after installation is finished.
