Issue with installing IBM Installation Manager using Rapid Deploy

I have downloaded and installed Rapid Deploy on a Windows 2012 Server VM running in AWS. I am trying to install IBM Installation Manager followed by IBM HTTP Server using Rapid Deploy in this VM. I have followed the instructions found at this URL: When I run the Job to install the IBM Installation Manager, I am getting the following exception in the log and cannot understand from the log what needs to be fixed. Can I get some help in resolving the exception below ? Thanks.

Hi Vijay,
This looks like, for some reason the IBM plugin jar is not copied to the target server.

  • Navigate to the Project -> General tab. 
  • Under the 'Plugin File Transfer' panel, make sure the 'rapiddeploy-core-plugins-ibm-iim.jar is selected. If it is not selected, highlight and click the 'right' arrow. If it is selected, deselect then reselect.
  • Save the project
  • Retry the deployment
