How to change the environment type from non-production to production in Cognos Analytics?

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How to change the environment type from non-production to production to comply with the licensing?

Cause

In previous versions, to change the environment type from non-production to production, the solution was to run the Cognos installer on top of an existing installation only changing the environment type. This solution is not available for Cognos Analytics.

Answer

Steps:

1) Log in as an Administrator

2) Navigate to Manage > Licenses

3) Select the environment type

4) Click Apply.

Note: To check if the change has been made, open the cmplst.txt in a text editor and find the line starting with "SWTAGNP_BI_SERVER_name=". If the name is SWTAG BI Server, the change will have occurred successfully. If it is SWTAG BI Server - Non-production then it will not have been made and you will need to retry.
