How to start Cognos on AIX without Xterm?


i have to configure a AIX server with Cognos 8 BI software. I am not able to get a xterm up and running. I know the command

export DISPLAY=:0.0

but it does not work. Time is running out so, HOW do i configure/start cognos on this server? ???


in the bin or bin64 directory you can execute the following script to start cognos

./ -s

now cognos will start with the cogstartup.xml file from the /c8/configuration directory.

you can edit this file if required like URL etc. You can also stop cognos with the command

./ -stop

btw. xterm is much easier to work with… :wink:

good luck
