Hi Cognos experts,
I have been asked to install Cognos10. DEV team wants to evaluate this product. I have read the documentation available, then installed Cognos 10 BI and Framework. I setup a DB2 as content store. The installation went OK, Cognos Service started, so far so good.
Please note that I have installed everything ON ONE PHYSICAL SERVER, in WINDOWS environment
The only think which does not work at this moment is the portal, the icon images are missing from the browser. I found an article at https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21343065
. This refers exactly to the problem I have. My questions are:
1. When installing with the default values, Cognos uses Tomcat. Do I have to specify any virtual directory in Tomcat config file (server.xml if I am not mistaken). Remember, I don't connect to a Cognos BI machine via an external IIS/Apache or any other Webserver
2. Should I install an Apache or IIS on THE SAME PHYSICAL MACHINE running Cognos BI and Framework then create the virtual directories the Cognos documentation refers to? I am confused because the documentation refers to installing everything on one machine, then why specifying the virtual directories?
3. In Cognos Configuration, the Web Content URI is empty. Should it be that way ?
Thank you all in advance for the time taken to read and reply to my question
