Workarounds and Mitigations

Installation Instructions – work around A
----------------------------------------------------------
As the user that installed the Predictive Insights UI component, e.g scadmin
1. Download java-sdk-7.0.10.10 from Fix Central
2. Stop the UI server used by IBM Operations Analytics Predictive Insights
/<UI_HOME>/bin/pi.sh -stop
where UI_HOME is typically /opt/IBM/scanalytics/UI
3. cd <UI_HOME>
4. Rename JAVA SDK installation folder
mv ibm-java-x86_64-70 ibm-java-x86_64-70_orig
5. untar ibm-java-sdk-7.0-10.10-linux-x86_64.tgz into <UI_HOME> folder (this will create a new ibm-java-x86_64-70 folder in <UI_HOME>)
6. start UI server
<UI_HOME>/bin/pi.sh -start
