Downloadable files


Abstract

Fix Pack 1 includes updates to Cognos Business Intelligence 10.1.0 and an optional update to enable support for Dynamic Query Relational over OLAP models with Netezza 6.

Download Description

This fix pack provides important product corrections on Cognos 10.1.0 Business Intelligence products and should be applied to all installations.


A supplemental optional download is available to enable Dynamic Query Mode usage against Netezza 6 data sources. This should only be applied after applying Fix Pack 1 to all installations and should be applied to all instances where the Cognos Report Server is being used as part of the Cognos Business Intelligence package.

Prerequisites

The 10.1.0 version of the product must already be installed. Updates in the fix pack are applied to the existing product installations. Fix Pack 1 must be installed before you install the Netezza updater.

If you have installed an interim fix, you may have specialized instructions to follow before you install this fix pack. They are provided in Technote 1499328.

Installation Instructions

To Download a Fix Pack

Download package

Apply FP1 to BI Server before you apply the FP1 updater for the following available products:
Cognos Mobile

Apply FP1 to BI Server before you apply the Netezza updater. There are two ways to download.

You can download FP1 alone if you don't want Dynamic Query for Netezza, or you can download the Netezza updater alone if you have already applied FP1. The link will bring you to the Download Options dialog. Change the default from Download Director to HTTP before you continue.
  2. Clicking on the FC link will permit you to use Download Director, thereby automatically downloading both updater files.
