    Has anyone experienced issues with jaspersoft 6.3 install where the privilege check fails? I'm an admin on the box but the the check keeps failing.

    Hello,

     

    Looks like the user does not have administrative privileges. Please try installing JasperReports as an administrative user as suggested for a similar install below:

    You will need to use a local admin account.

    AD accounts will not work for the Jasper installation.

    Hi Matt,

     

    How we can run the installer in RHEL 7.x with a non root account? What are the privileges I need to set to the non root account?

     

    Thank you.

    Hey Rajashekar,

     

    I believe from a supported stand point the install must be done as an administrator type user.  On linux that is root.

    After the installation is done, you can change permissions to another user ID.

     

    However, I am sure as long as permissions to the location you are installing to (creating directories ahead of time) might work…but not tested.

    We use root, and then change permissions.

     

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Thank you Matt. That means, install it with root and change the permissions to non root user as below.

     

    chown -R userName:GroupName <Install_Directory>

    Basically yes.  But you only want to do the files that are owned by root.

    There are some (postgres) for example that are not owned by root and should remain owned by postgres user.

    Got it. Thank you Matt. Seems, installation with non root account is supported from 6.4.3.

    Yes it is.

    Spectrum 10.3 will support 6.4.2 and 6.4.3!

    10.3 is set to release this year.
