Error description

  • Error description from customer (this one is on Linux):
    "Problem description
    
    When starting Cognos8 BI server in silent mode with cogconfig.sh
    the
    return code for success is 1 and for failure 0. In Linux the
    return
    code for success is 0 and for failure is 1 or greater.
    
    So I cannot use linux standard functions for automatically
    starting and
    stopping Cognos8 BI server.
    
    .

    I cannot use Linux standard functions for automatically starting
    and
    stopping Cognos8 BI server.
    
    .
    
    "
    

Local fix

  • Workaround is to change the numbers from the exit codes manually
    in cogconfig.sh; however the customer wants of course a
    supported environment.
