RHEL6 - Unable to Initialize Entity System in Users: null

Hi All,

I'm attempting to get both the Thingworx Platform and Thingworx Connection Server installed on my RHEL6 (64 bit) system.  I've had a myriad of errors, but I'm now stuck on something internal to the application of Thingworx.  I'm hoping you can help get me through this hurdle first.

Noticed Application Error:

Entity System in Users: null

Hi Jeff,

Just to confirm, have you already reviewed the prerequisite documentation and installation documentation on the community site? You will want to use the Java and Tomcat versions outlined here to get started. The prerequisite system requirements can be found in section 02.02 of the Wiki and the installation instructions can be found at section 02.01.  If after setting up your system following these direction and settings you are still having issues, please open a support case in the PTC eSupport portal to work directly with a ThingWorx engineer. This can be found at https://support.ptc.com.


Thank you,

Saeed

Can you please post here the solution for this issue?

Sebastian, can you post your error message here along with your Tomcat and Java versions?

I used Tomcat 8 and JDK 1.8, but I do not think this is related to Java or Tomcat. I think is something related with CentOS.

The issue is the same as above:

"Unable To Initialize Entity System in Users: null"

"Unable To Initialize Entity Administrator in Users: null"

"Unable To Initialize Entity SuperUser in Users: null"

Thanks for the quick reply. Is this a new install or are you trying to upgrade? You might have done this already, but please do recheck the folder permissions.

This is a new install. I was running tomcat as root, so folder permissions should not be a problem.

I have installed Thingworx many times on Ubuntu and I did not encounter any issue, therefore I tend to believe the problem is related to CentOS,

Did you manage install Thingworx on CentOS ?

Sebastien, did you manage to solve the problem with Unable To Initialize Entity ?

I have the same issue on Ubuntu and Thingworx 7.1:


Installing Thingworx 7.1, PostgreSQL 9.4, Oracle JDK 1.8, Tomcat 8.0.36, Linux Ubuntu - problem

Yes, I managed to solved it by switching to Ubuntu.  In my case the problem was caused by CentOS.
