BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

-If your IBM Cognos BI Installation for TM1 Reporting is not on 10.2.1 FP11, 10.2.2 FP5, or newer - you MUST apply the following Cognos BI Security Updater to your BI Environment before you proceed with updating your IBM Cognos TM1 Certificates: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21979767 .

-If you use IBM Cognos Analytics 11.0.4 or lower - you must follow the steps within this document. IBM Cognos Analytics 11.0.5 will come bundled with the new TM1 Certificates when the release is made available.

-It is assumed that when on UNIX, your TM1_PATH environment variable is pointing to Cognos BI's own /bin/ or /bin64/ directory. If your TM1_PATH points elsewhere, be sure to update the /ssl/ folder within, using the new certificate files listed in Step 2.

-If your IBM Cognos BI Installation has multiple report servers, ensure that all report servers are updated accordingly.

To update your IBM Cognos BI TM1 Client Components, the below steps can be followed:

  1. Download the appropriate up_bisrvr updater kit from the following location:
  2. Stop your IBM Cognos BI Services
  3. Extract the downloaded file/archive and extract it to any directory.
  4. Run the installer as an Administrator
  5. Click your way through the installer, ensuring that the updater is being applied over top of the correct Cognos BI Install directory
  6. After the installation has finished, the following directories will contain the updated TM1 Certificate files:
    • <cognos_bi_install_dir>/bin/ssl
    • <cognos_bi_install_dir>/bin64/ssl
  7. Start your IBM Cognos BI services

    At this stage, (and assuming your IBM Cognos TM1 Server components have been set up correctly and are running) - you should be able to confirm that you are able to successfully connect to your TM1 Server via IBM Cognos BI
