I want to install thingworx foundation on my pc but finding it difficult. Could someone recommend a video tuttorial or some that will guide me through successfully?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi, I don't think TWX have installation videos, and Community is a "Low Touch" support method, if you need someone to closely follow your installation process, It's highly recommended that you create a case for it.
Thank you for the concern. It is so frusting on windows.
I have decided to use Ubuntu and still going well but while running this command "
sudo addgroup --system tomcat8.5 --quiet —force-badname
to add group to the folder tomcat8.5, it keep saying not does not exist. how do I rectify this?
I am not sure I understand what you meant by creating a case.
Did you successfully extracted the tar file? Was the file in the correct path? These are generally 2 steps before this addgroup command, You just started installation so the reason must be quite simple.
By "Creating Case" I mean if you're a TWX client (higher than Silver) or PTC insider, you could use your account to create a technical support case in the esupport website, and a TWX engineer will pick it and help through the problem you have.
Thank you for your concerned.
Yes I extracted the tar file and even to it the recommended folder.
I could locate that in the folder.
So I don't really know what is wrong.
Thank you you so much for spotting the problem. Now solved but next command just that one is giving me this challenge, I will appreciate if you can still help though your solution is accept as the answer to the problem.
$ sudo adduser --system --home /usr/share/tomcat8.5/ --no-create-home --ingroup tomcat8.5 --disabled-password --shell –force-badname/bin/false tomcat8.5
result when run:
mbolij@mbolij-VirtualBox:~$ sudo adduser --system --home /usr/share/tomcat8.5/ --no-create-home --ingroup tomcat8.5 --disabled-password --shell --force-badname/bin/false tomcat8.5
[sudo] password for mbolij:
Sorry, try again.
[sudo] password for mbolij:
adduser: Please enter a username matching the regular expression configured
via the NAME_REGEX[_SYSTEM] configuration variable. Use the `--force-badname'
option to relax this check or reconfigure NAME_REGEX.
Any solution please?
Try to use:
sudo useradd -r -d /usr/share/tomcat8.5 -g tomcat8.5 -s /bin/false tomcat8.5
Thank you reluca_edu,
I ran that and it added successfully. I don't really if I am following a tutorial or what.
The next line of comand produces this as again and I can't either the missing operand.
mbolij@mbolij-VirtualBox:~$ sudo chown -R tomcat8.5:tomcat8.5/usr/share/tomcat8.5;
chown: missing operand after ‘tomcat8.5:tomcat8.5/usr/share/tomcat8.5’
Try 'chown --help' for more information.
Any help is highly appreciated.
Missing a space in command, please use:
sudo chown -R tomcat8.5:tomcat8.5 /usr/share/tomcat8.5
