Important tip on Sametime installs - increase the JVM heap size for Installation Manger

I wanted to mention this tip as I have just finished my part of a 80+ Sametime server environment and this tip helps the installer work so much better (including helping it not to crash "out of memory" sometimes):

  • Increase the JVM heap size for the Installation Manager
  • Close Installation Manager
  • Go to the Installation Manager install directory (C:\Program Files\IBM\Installation Manager\eclipse)
  • Add the line "-Xmx1024m" to IBMIM.ini
  • Run the offering launchpad again to invoke the installation
Thanks to Tony Payne and Andy Yiu from IBM for this tip.
