Installing CABI 4.1 on CentOS

  • 1.  Installing CABI 4.1 on CentOS

    Has anyone managed to install CABI4.1 on CentOS? The installer always complains that the OS is not a RHEL.

    I've a test environemt I want to use for evaluating Spectrum 10.0. Our production-stage is RHEL-only so that will not be an issue.

     

    Thanks for any hints,

    Jan

    We have not specifically done this yet for Spectrum 10 and CABI4.1, but it has worked in the past for installations that "required" a RHEL release.

     

    You should be able to edit the /etc/redhat-release

    Suggestion, copy off the original redhat-release to something else.  Then after you do your install, put the original back.  We always have our systems with their real redhat-release file and only make this change during installations.

     

    example, for

       CentOS 5.8 the RHEL equivalent would be: "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Tikanga)"

       CentOS 6.5 the RHEL equivalent would be: "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.5 (Santiago)"

       CentOS 7.0 the RHEL equivalent would be: "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.0 (Maipo)"

    you can Install BO 4.1 on Centos 6.4. You must Change the /etc/redhat-release file and set it to "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.4 (Santiago)"

    After the Installation, Iset it back, but for each SP / Patch you must modify the file.

    Do not waste your time installing CABI 4.1 sp3 on Centos.  Yes, Business Objects 4.1 will install provided you have the required libraries and you edit the release-file but you will never get the Crystal Reports Server to start in the CMC.  Believe me I've tried about three times. Either you install CABI on RedHat or Windows.
