How to install the Data Virtualization and Watson Knowledge Catalog service patches

  • 1.  How to install the Data Virtualization and Watson Knowledge Catalog service patches

    Posted 20 days ago
    Hello,
    I installed CP4D v2.5, and I also installed DV and WKC to my environment.
    I have already provisioned DV instance.
    Then, I tried to install patch of DV and WKC refer to the following page:
    ------------------------------------------
    https://community.ibm.com/community/user/viewdocument/technical-preview-watson-knowledge
    ------------------------------------------
    According to the document "Installing the Data Virtualization service patch", the patch is applied by the following procedure.

    1. Preparing to install the Data Virtualization service patch
    2. Installing the Watson Knowledge Catalog service patch (3.0.0.1)
    3. Installing the Data Virtualization service
    4. Provisioning the service
    5. Installing the Data Virtualization service patch (v1.3.0.0-284)

    Also, it seems that it is necessary to install the WKC patch before installing the DV patch because the document has the following description.
    ------------------------------------------
    The Watson Knowledge Catalog service patch 3.0.0.1 contains defect fixes and must be installed before you install the Data Virtualization patch.
    ------------------------------------------

    However, DV installed in my environment is v1.3.0.0-301, which is a higher version than the patch "v1.3.0.0-284".
    So, I couldn't install DV patch before WKC patch.
    In this environment, do I just need to apply the wkc patch ?

    Best regards,

    Hi Hanako,

    Some additional details about these DV builds:

    v1.3.0.0-279 was the official DV GA build for November release 


    v1.3.0.0-284 is a Tech Preview release for  Watson Knowledge Catalog in Data Virtualization feature. It includes 279 + feature  specific changes. This version was released in December'19 and it was provided just to specific customers interested in trying out this new functionality


    v1.3.0.0-301 is an DV GA refresh delivered in Jan'20. It includes 279 GA  + changes for FIPS support (requirement from CP4D systems)

    Since build 284 is a tech preview there is not patching path between 301 and 284. We don't want to mix TP and GA builds

    To try Watson Knowledge Catalog in Data Virtualization you will need to install DV GA November release (279) and follow the instructions in the documentation you shared above:
    https://community.ibm.com/community/user/viewdocument/technical-preview-watson-knowledge

    Hope it helps

    Hello,
    Thank you for your answer.
    If 301 includes 284's fixes, I don't reinstall 279 and 284. (I will keep 301 in my environment.)
    Does 301 include 284's fixes ?
    Best regards,

    No, as described before:

    v1.3.0.0-301  includes 279 GA  + changes for FIPS support

    v1.3.0.0-301 does not include specific Tech Preview changes for Watson Knowledge Catalog in Data Virtualization feature

    So if you are interested in the TP feature you need to install 284 build
