Explains how to start the BA Server.
Modify the Tomcat Linux Startup Script
The Tomcat startup script must be modified to include the CATALINA_OPTS variable. CATALINA_OPTS indicates the amount of memory to allocate. It also indicates where Pentaho licenses are installed.
- Make sure the Tomcat web application server is not running by opening a Terminal window and typing ps -A at the prompt. If the server is running, stop it.
- Use a text editor to open the start-pentaho.sh file, which is in the biserver-ee directory.
- Add the java option pentaho.installed.licenses.file to CATALINA_OPTS. You need to modify setting of
CATALINA_OPTS variable at the end of the file by adding the java option. See the following example.
export CATALINA_OPTS="-Xms4096m -Xmx6144m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Dsun.rmi.dgc.client.gcInterval=3600000 -Dsun.rmi.dgc.server.gcInterval=3600000 -Dpentaho.installed.licenses.file=$PENTAHO_INSTALLED_LICENSE_PATH"
- Save and close the file.
Start BA Server
- Run the startup script for your web application server by launching the start-pentaho.sh file.
- Open a web browser and enter this URL: http://localhost:8080/pentaho. The User Console Log On window appears. Note that you will be prompted to install a license. Information on how to do that appears in the Set Up BA Server instructions.
