Setup Watson Explorer 11.0.2 and Analytical Components on Centos 7
Twitter Google+ Facebook LinkedIn Addthis Email Gmail Flipboard Reddit Tumblr WhatsApp StumbleUpon Yammer Evernote Delicious

I am using Centos for all IBM Software i work with.   Domino, WebSphere Portal, DB2, ITDS to name a few. The last software was Watson Explorer Enterprise and Advanced.

I know Centos is not supported by IBM but it works

During the setup of analytical components version 11.0.2 the installer was not working with and the error message is bellow:

Unpacking the JRE...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...

Launching installer...

JRE libraries are missing or not compatible....

I search for a solution and IBM has a technote about the problem on version 11.0.0. To solve just install the 32 bit libraries

- zlib-devel.i686
- libXext.i686
- libXft.i686
- libXi.i686
- libXp.i686
- libXtst.i686


Another problem was when i launch the ESAdmin interface http://server:8390/ESAdmin after start the services with the command esadmin service startall
FFQM0142E The system is not running. To start the system, log in as the administrator on any server and enter: esadmin system startall

Again i need to verify all libraries. libstdc++.i686 and libstdc++ was not installed .

For wex fc and analytics component you need the following:

  1. libstdc++33 (compat-libstdc++-33.i686 / libstdc++33-32bit)
  2. libstdc++ (libstdc++.i686 / libstdc++6-32bit)
  3. zlib (zlib.i686 / libz1-32bit / zlib-32bit)
  4. libXext (libXext.i686 / libXext6-32bit / xorg-x11-libXext-32bit)
  5. libXft (libXft.i686 / libXft2-32bit / xorg-x11-libs-32bit)
  6. libXi (libXi.i686 / libXi6-32bit / xorg-x11-libs-32bit)
  7. libXp (libXp.i686 / libXp6-32bit / xorg-x11-libXp-32bit)
  8. libXtst (libXtst.i686 / libXtst6-32bit / xorg-x11-libs-32bit)

Setup NLQ (Natural Language Querying) on Watson Explorer 11.0.2
Fri, Oct 27th 2017 9:42a   Kenio Carvalho
Watson™ Explorer Natural Language Querying (NLQ) improves the user search experience by allowing the user to query Watson Explorer using natural language queries such as questions. This is accomplished through the use of two components: Query Modifier, which modifies user queries before they are executed, and Ontolection Trainer, which provides machine learning tools that can generate ontolections for use in query expansion.

Several weeks ago a customer launch his new WebSphere Portal after  migrating from WPS 7.0.  We change the database server from Db2 to Oracle RAC but… WebSphere Portal has support for Oracle RAC.  We ask the Oracle DBA team for the connection URL and he sent an URL like this one: jdbc:oracle:thin:@(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=HOSTNAME)(PORT=1521))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=SERVICENAME)) The url for Oracle RAC is like this one: jdbc:oracle:thin:@(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS_LIST=(
Improving DNS Lookups on Linux
Tue, Oct 17th 2017 9:50a   Kenio Carvalho
A good DNS service is very important for a mail server. On Linux servers you need to put your DNS servers on a file called resolv.conf. In general you have two entries like this: nameserver1 nameserver2 If one server does not respond then linux will try the second, but there is a timeout for this: timeout:n Sets the amount of time the resolver will wait for a response from a remote name server before retrying the query via a different name server. This may not be t

On a customer site, all windows machines has a GPO to turn on the IE compatibility mode. The new WebSphere Portal does not work well with this compatibility mode. To solve the problem we add the following on the Apache Web Server Header set X-UA-Compatible “IE=Edge” The header above tell the IE browser to not use compatibillity mode when accessing the new portal.
