Re: Problem starting Tivoli Live image on SmartCloud

‏2012-01-21T22:15:11Z  in response to ateo.duran
yep, I suspected that most of the errors were because /opt/IBM was owned by root. Running as root avoids these errors, but you have to take a few extra steps (starting from idcuser login shell):

xhost +
sudo bash
export DISPLAY=":1.0"

But, wait, there's more! After doing the config steps, I still get the error popup with the KFWITM348E error when starting the client. Here is the output from the config steps, wherein I took most of the defaults.

vhost0820:/opt/IBM/ITM/bin # ./itmcmd config -A cq

Note that when you launch the Amazon instance of Tivoli Live, there are a series of configuration screens that you have to go thru for the first ssh connection to the instance. Seems like a good idea for the SmartCloud instance to do the same!
