Expand the appropriate installation files

Since I am installing in a 64 bit Windows VM, I use the 64 bit launch pad

IBM Integration Designer for IBM Business Monitor

For Windows only, this installation configuration includes IBM Business Monitor, the Monitor Model editor (a feature in IBM Integration Designer), and a IBM Business Monitor test environment. The following packages are selected for installation:

  • WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment
  • Business Monitor
  • IBM Cognos
  • DB2 Express
  • Integration Designer

A default stand-alone profile for Business Monitor is selected on the Features page. This profile enables you to begin using the test environment immediately.

IBM Integration Designer for WebSphere DataPower

This installation configuration works directly with the WebSphere DataPower Appliance, and does not include a test environment. Only the Integration Designer package is selected for installation.

IBM Integration Designer

This installation configuration does not include a test environment. Only the Integration Designer package is selected for installation.

I chose the option to install the Process Server Test Environment and start working with the IBM Process Center first, all this check box does is auto prompt to connect to an existing Process Center. This is covered in another separate article.

Click “install Selected” and the IBM installation manager will start.

As the IIM (IBM Installation manager) loads it will validate the local install repository.

As you can see above the installer has already pre-selected the individual component. We are installing WAS ND, IID, IBM Process Server Advanced (Both Process Server and ESB) DB2 Express to fulfill a complete developer environment.

Click Next

You will see the repository already contains several fix packs.

Read and Accept License

I choose to install in was8nd as it is not a protected folder.


Click Next and the wizard will prompt for some profile & DB/2 settings

We use profile settings as administrative security will be turned on for this profile. Click Next

Review the installation summary and click Install

At this point the IIM is asking you to create a Process Center, we do this using a Process Center profile. But since I want to verify that the process server profile has installed let’s look at that first. Later we will create the Process Center server (Process Center Profile).

When the install is completed, select none as seen below. We do not need to create a profile because we are going to use the WTE (WebSphere Test Environment) from within IBM Integration Designer.

Click finish to and close the Launchpad installer.

Since I have installed on Windows, there is a new entry in the IBM program group

OR: C:\IBM\IntegrationDesigner\v8.0\wid.exe -product com.ibm.wbit.feature.ide

Once the IID is started, it will prompt for a location for the workspace.

I have chosen: C:\workspaces\iid80\

When we start-up click cancel as we do not yet now the URL of the process center server as we have not yet created that profile. We will do so later on.

Below is the default Business Integration perspective

If we click the server’s view as seen below and use a right-mouse click we can find out the profile that was created by the installer.

We can see that the Process Center is installed in a profile called qbpmaps


To start eh process server we can type

C:\wasnd8\profiles\qbpmaps\bin\startserver.bat server1

Or use the right-mouse stat option

To find your admin console port: look for the stanza that contains WC_adminhost

<specialEndpoints xmi:id=”NamedEndPoint_1183121908098″ endPointName=”WC_adminhost”>

<endPoint xmi:id=”EndPoint_1183121908098″ host=”*” port=”9060″/>


Note we will also see that we are using port 9060, so the URL is:




Process Center

We need to create a Process Center Server. We cannot do this with the same media that was used to install IID. You see Process Server Center comes with the full version of IBM BPM and is designed to be an actual server. You would not have a local dev IDE and a local Process Center on the same machine. Reason is resources locally and what is the point. A Process center is supposed to be shared.

Search my site for the article on how to create a Process Center.

Once the Process Center server is available we can switch to the Process Center perspective and connect.
