TSM Reporting and Monitoring requires that "historical data collection" be configured on the Tivoli Enterprise Portal. The log-on is done using a Web browser, which requires that IBM Java be installed. This document provides configuration instructions.
Unable to install the IBM Java because of dependency on libXp.so.6. Unable to configure Firefox with the IBM Java plugin.
Resolving the problem
To log on to the Tivoli Enterprise Portal (TEPS) from a Linux host, a Web browser, such as Firefox, must be used to log on to the Portal. Enter the following URL address, where hostname is the host of the Tivoli Monitoring server.
When this is done, the IBM Java is required to be installed, if not already done. The installation of the IBM Java might fail with a dependency check on the "libXp.so.6" file. For the IBM Java to successfully install, the libXp rpm package is needed, for example, libXp-1.0.0-8.i386.rpm. This rpm package is part of the Linux distribution and must be installed.
After the IBM Java is installed, the Web browser must be configured with the Java plug-in. To configure the Firefox browser with the IBM Java plug-in, complete the following steps:
ln -s /opt/ibm/java2-i386-50/jre/bin/libjavaplugin_ojigtk2.so
ln -s /opt/ibm/java2-i386-50/jre/bin/libjavaplugin_oji.so
For more information on configuring the Java plug-in, refer to the documentation that is installed with IBM Java. The documentation can be accessed in the following default installation path :
Navigate to the "SDK and Runtime Environment Guide" link and the section titled "Installing the Java plug-in".
