Install Framework Mgr on App server
« on: 17 Jul 2020 05:03:27 am »
I've installed Framework Manager on the same server as the Application server. Framework is installed in a separate directory to the main application but when trying to run Config Mgr for Framework I get the Java.lang error.

Has anyone been able to have FM installed on the same server as the Gateway/Application and was able to open FM's config manager? If so, how did you get it to work?

Thanks.

Hi,

Yes, you can install and use FM on the same server as your main Cognos instance. You didn't post any real detail on what the error message says, but I'm guessing it's the one in the tech note below?

https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/unable-open-cognos-configuration-javalangunsatisfiedlinkerror-cogconfigjni-not-found-javalibrarypath

The first place to start looking is your environment variables. DO you have JAVA_HOME set? If so, is it pointing to a different JRE than the one embedded with CA?

Cheers!

MF.
Meep!

Sorry for my late reply and thanks for replying  :)

Correct; The issue you referenced is the problem I'm experiencing.

To add some background to this, in my current C10.2 installation;
1) We have FM, Transformer and the BI Server all installed on the same physical server.
2) I think Cognos FM and Transformer was either installed or moved into a sub-directory of the main BI Server install directory.
3) Opening Cognos Configuration for the BI Server (I believe) is therefore sharing it's configuration with FM & Transformer.
4) In the C10 environment, I don't see any User or System Environment variables that reference "JAVA HOME".

Here are the C10 installs;
E:\cognos\c10_22\bin\cogconfigw.exe <- Cognos Config
E:\cognos\c10_22\bin\cogtr.exe <- Transformer
E:\cognos\c10_22\bin\FM.exe <- Framework Mgr

In the C11 environment;
1) After installing the BI Server component, you cannot install FM or TR as a subdirectory from the BI Server component, all have to be installed in separate folders.
2) I checked the User and System Environment variables and noticed there are no specific references to a "JAVA HOME" variable.

C11 Install paths;
E:\cognos\analytics\bin64\cogconfigw.exe
E:\cognos\framework\bin\FM.exe

C11 PATH Variables;
E:\cognos\analytics\bin64
E:\cognos\analytics\bin\
E:\cognos\framework\bin64

I installed all C11 components as Run As > Administrator.

Any other clues? Thanks.
