I’ve just recently installed Cognos 10.1 (no fix packs, etc) in our test environment that uses a Sun One LDAP namespace on the same machine. We also have a working Cognos 8.3 installation, using the same namespace on the same machine that is also active (side-by-side installation).
I have not made any changes to the intial security as of yet. The problem being, is that while I have anonymous access enabled, when I turn that off and attempt to log in as my 8.3 admin user, I a ‘web page cannot be displayed’ error in IE.
The namespace name is not enabled (cannot click on it) in Cognos administration, so I am hesitant on making any changes that won’t be able to be reverted without reinstalling. Since I cannot access that authentication provider, I can’t add the admin user to the various groups/roles, etc.
I have configured the 10.1 installation through congos configuration as an exact duplicate of the working 8.3 cognos configuration.
Any assistance on this would be exceedingly appreciated.
Attached are the cogstartup.xml files (with internal identifying info changed to generic stuff). The cognos content/cognos logging databases are cognosdb.server.com – references to the cognos server name are changed to cognos.server.com.
There is a known issue with the Apache that ships with Solaris 10 when using cognos_module. I’d point it out to you in the docs, but I can’t seem to be able to find it. I did read this in the docs last week though.
