ThingWorx Analytics Server installation: Can't validate Thingworx Foundation connection

SOLVED

Re: ThingWorx Analytics Server installtion: Can't validate Thingworx Foundation connection

Hi Christophe,

Thanks for the reply.

I am attaching the outputs which I got from running the commands as the administrator. I am attaching the screenshots and the Analyticsserverfolder  install.log for your review.


Hope this helps!

Thanks!

Re: ThingWorx Analytics Server installtion: Can't validate Thingworx Foundation connection

Hi Tushar

I apologize, I did overlook an important point in your first sentence of your first post.

You mentioned you are installing on a Windows 10 VM.

Unless very special circumstances, you cannot do this, you need a physical Windows 10 machine.

docker on Windows uses virtualization and in most cases you cannot have a nested virtualization (docker inside a VM) .

In your case you probably cannot run the docker test: docker run hello-world, which then prohibit going any further with the installation since Analytics is based on docker.

You would need to use a physical Windows 10.

If you need to use a virtual machine, you will then need to go for a CentOS or Ubuntu one.

Hope this help

Kind regards

Christophe

Re: ThingWorx Analytics Server installtion: Can't validate Thingworx Foundation connection

Hi Christophe,

Thanks for the reply. I understand the problem now. Since I have a physical Windows 10 too on my personal pc but it is a home edition (not supported by docker).

I tried to install the Virtualbox on my Windows 2012 VM but the only options I was getting were for 32 bit Linux OS and not the 64 bits ones. I do not understand why?

Also, will it be possible, if I install Virtualbox on my personal Windows 10 Home Edition PC and in that virtualbox I install the 64 bit Linux based OS and then do the installation with the Linux Stand Alone files available on the website??

Thanks!

Re: ThingWorx Analytics Server installtion: Can't validate Thingworx Foundation connection

Hi Christophe,

Based on your suggestion, I installed the AnalyticsServer on a new linux based VM (stand alone or without the docker version). I am now able to see the AnalyticsServer thing in the TW core as well as, in the Analytics Builder.

Thanks for all the help!

Tushar

P.S. Just a quick question , out of curiosity, is there any performance difference bewteen the versions of Analytics Server with and without docker? What exactly is the purpose of docker in the whole process?

Re: ThingWorx Analytics Server installtion: Can't validate Thingworx Foundation connection

Hi Tushar

I am happy it works for you.

I am not aware of any difference in term of performance or functionality between the docker and native version of ThingWorx Analytics.

It is more down to a user's preference .

Kind regards

Christophe

Re: ThingWorx Analytics Server installation: Can't validate Thingworx Foundation connection

Hello, I am facing the same problem trying to verify the ThingWorx Foundation connection.

I am running ThingWorx Analytics server on a windows 7 , 16GB and 8 cores, diferente than ThingWorx Foundation

I have installed the Docker Toolbox and make sure that I have a computer that has a HAV capable processor and if this feature (HAV setting) is enabled on the processor (from the BIOS).

I can ping my ThingWorx Core Foundation Server IP from my windows 7, but my browser can not access to my ThingWorx Core server with an 8080 port.

any ideas?

Re: ThingWorx Analytics Server installation: Can't validate Thingworx Foundation connection

I got it working with port 80.

Hey Val,

Apologies for the delayed response. I am glad it worked out for you.

Re: ThingWorx Analytics Server installation: Can't validate Thingworx Foundation connection

Thank you Tushar, right now i am facing same issue as

Thingworx analytics 8.0 docker installation on windows 7

but for version 8.1, let me know if you have any idea.

Val.

Re: ThingWorx Analytics Server installation: Can't validate Thingworx Foundation connection

Hey Val,

Is your Windows 7 system on which you are running your analytics server ( a physical system or a virtual machine?)

As Chritophe suggested in one of my earlier questions that Docker doesn't work in virtual machines and that was the problem which I was facing while trying to establish the connection between the ThingWorx core and Analytics Server.

Best regards,

Tushar
