Modifying installations

The Modify Packages wizard in the IBM® Installation Manager enables you to change the language and feature selections of an installed product package. You can also use the Modify Packages wizard to install new features that might be included in a package update, such as a refresh pack.

Before you begin

By default, Internet access is required unless the repository preferences points to a local update site. See the Installation Manager help for more information.
