Pinned topic BigInsights V2.0 on CentOS - 64 bit?

‏2013-02-02T16:39:36Z |
Hi,

I wanted to know if BigInsights V2.0 can be installed on CentOS - 64 bit VM/physical 1 node?

I have previously installed BigInsights V1.4 on CentOS - 64 bit VM and it runs fine. (looked at the following video to install)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQAxgACnecs

I am not interested in a dual boot windows 7 + linux for running BigInsights and Streams. Hence just wanted to confirm if CentOS will work? This is for academic purposes - hence I can't install Red Hat natively since it comes for a price after a 1 month trial.

Thanks!
Ramiya

    Sorry I meant - I am NOW interested in a dual boot windows 7 + 64 bit linux for running BigInsights and Streams on my machine. (Assuming reqd. config of min 40GB HDD/8GB RAM is in place)

    Hi Erlend,

    Thanks for confirming. Also - did you follow an particular steps for CentOS? Or you just used the documentation? And did you try running social media accelerators yet?
    Sorry for too many questions.

    Here are my install instructions. Some are, I bet, superfluous, but I got the installation to finish. On my installation, however, there is a problem: Launching applications from the console does not seem to work.

    0. yum update

    1. Install SSH server
    1.1 Make sure ssh starts on boot: chkconfig sshd on
    2. Add group sshusers
    3. Add users root, biadmin
    4. Add line AllowGroups sshusers in /etc/ssh/ssh_config

    Read: http://www.tothetech.com/tips-tricks/how-to-install-ibm-biginsights-in-centos-x86_64.html
    Add biadmin to sudoers

    5. Install expect: yum install expect
    #6. Uninstall Java: yum remove java-1.6.0-openjdk (or others)
    #7. Install IBM java
    1. Java install superfluous, java is bundled with bi.

    8. install httpd
    9. start httpd service. Start at boot.: chkconfig httpd on

    10. set port to 8300 to installation node (nmap check).

    10.1. BigInsights cannot run on the system which has SELINUX enabled.

    To bypass this issue, edit /etc/selinux/config, and change
    SELINUX=enforcing to SELINUX=disabled and reboot the system.

    10.2. ./installer/bin/enableOrDisablePrecheck.sh disable port.connectivity (500010 fail)

    10.3 check group id for biadmin (500 for centos install):
    getent group biadmin | cut -d: -f3
    11. when starting install script. define root user and password.

    12. Start console.
