You should use

 

sudo addgroup --system tomcat8.5 --quiet --force-badname

--force-badname instead of 

—force-badname

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.

Re: Thingworxwox Foundation installation

Hi,

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.

Re: Thingworxwox Foundation installation

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.

Re: Thingworxwox Foundation installation

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.

Re: Thingworxwox Foundation installation

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.

 

Command:

$ 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.
mbolij@mbolij-VirtualBox:~$

 

Any solution please?

Re: Thingworxwox Foundation installation

Hi,

 

Try to use:

 

sudo useradd -r -d /usr/share/tomcat8.5 -g tomcat8.5 -s /bin/false tomcat8.5

Re: Thingworxwox Foundation installation

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.
mbolij@mbolij-VirtualBox:~$

 

Any help is highly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Re: Thingworxwox Foundation installation

Missing a space in command, please use:

 

sudo chown -R tomcat8.5:tomcat8.5 /usr/share/tomcat8.5
