This Technote applies to all versions of TM1 10.1 and TM1 10.1.1

Content

BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

-The provisioning agent is part of the TM1 Application Portal (PMPSVC). When a user installs/opens Performance Modeler or Cognos Insight using the icons from within the PMPSVC portal - a version check occurs. During this check, if the server contains an updated version of the Performance Modeler or Cognos Insight client - users will automatically receive the updates.

-This updater specifically updates the Provisioning Agent on the TM1 Application Portal to ensure that users who launch Performance Modeler or Cognos Insight obtain the new certificates automatically.

-If your TM1 Application Server (PMPSVC) web application is hosted on a different application server than the bundled Tomcat Application server, you will need to recreate your PMPSVC WAR file, and redeploy it to your application server.

-If your TM1 Application Server (PMPSVC) web application uses a different JRE than what is provided by default, ensure that you update the RunSSLProvInst.bat file to point to your JRE path.

INSTALLATION STEPS:

  1. The following steps do not necessarily require that your TM1 Application Server be stopped, however it is recommended that you perform these steps when the server is stopped / while you are applying the rest of the certificate changes for the TM1 Application Server ( using the manual steps via http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21991653 )
  2. Download/obtain the TM1RCPSSLProvInst updater from the following location:
  3. You should have the following files:
    • TM1RCPSSLProvInst.jar
    • RunSSLProvInst.bat
  4. Copy the two files above to your <tm1_install_dir>\tm1_64\ directory
  5. Open Windows Command Prompt as an Administrator, and navigate to <tm1_install_dir>\tm1_64\
  6. Execute the following command to update the Provisioning Agent:
    • RunSSLProvInst.bat

      You may also run the application in Test Mode (the script will run however changes will not be made). To run the application in Test Mode use RunSSLProvInst.bat -t
After the above steps have been followed, users who launch IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler / Cognos Insight from the TM1 Application Portal will automatically receive the new SSL Certificates.
