Known problems and workarounds

Installing on Red Hat Linux version 7

Ignore warning about missing libraries when installing Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence on Red Hat Linux version 7

On the Install Packages page, you might see the following warning:

CRRRI0105W: The required library 'openmotif' was not found; before continuing, ensure that the library is installed.

This warning can be safely ignored. The required libraries for Red Hat Linux version 7 are:

  • glibc-2.17-55.el7.x86_64.rpm
  • libstdc++-4.8.2-16.el7.x86_64.rpm
  • nspr-4.10.2-4.el7.x86_64.rpm
  • nss-3.15.4-6.el7.x86_64.rpm
  • motif-2.3.4-7.el7.x86_64

Some prerequisite library changes on Linux

The prerequisite requirement on the openmotif library has changed. If the system which the RRDI is installed does not have the proper libXm version, the Install Manager may report an install failure like
    CogUninstall: /opt/IBM/RRDI1/cognos/uninstall/uninst not found
Please look at this tech note for more details.

Downloading and unzipping the RRDI installation repositories

Download Tip: Due to the large file sizes of these downloads, we highly recommend that you use a download manager to work around a download size limitation on some web browsers (typically 2 GB maximum) and to improve the download performance.

Unzip Tip: You may experience problem to unzip the RRDI installation repositories zip files on some releases of Windows, Linux and AIX platforms. This is due to a known limitation on these platforms that prevent their "unzip" utility to unzip files bigger than 2 GBytes.

On many versions of Windows, unzipping using the default Extract All feature may even fail silently to properly unzip the files which will result in failures when installing/upgrading RRDI.

The workaround to this defect is to use a different tool to unzip the RRDI installation repositories zip files.

If you experience unzip issues on any platforms, you can use a tool like 7zip which can be downloaded from 7-zip
