Now that we have created and configured our VM, it is time to install the database software. We will then create an empty Maximo database which will be used later on for the Maximo installation. Alternatively, you can simply install the DB2 database which comes together with the Maximo software. Personally, I found that DB2 needs a lot more resources and is not really suitable for a VM.
In this blog we will discuss how to create and setup a Maximo 7.6 Development VM.
You have several possible choices for both the VM software and VM guest OS and we will cover installation and setup of a Windows Server 2012 R2 OS which is hosted on a VMWare Player VM software.
To download the OS, please visit the following page: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-server-2012-r2?i=1.
After you have deployed your Maximo enterprise service as a web service, you may need to obtain wsdl and xsd files.
For testing purposes and/or in production environment it may be required to change application session timeout value.
By default, this value is set to 30 minutes. In order to modify it you should edit web.xml file located in <Maximo Root Dir>\applications\maximo\maximouiweb\webmodule\WEB-INF directory. Within the file find section for session timeout configuration and modify <session-timeout> value as desired.
Sometimes it could be handy to have an easy access to frequently used applications.
