Installation of TIBCOJasperserver 6.1 Professional in Ubuntu 15.04 (Installing TIBCOJasperserver in VMware guest ubuntu server and access from windows 10 host)

Hello Readers,

This post will teach you how to install latest TIBCOJaspersoft 6.1 Professional in Ubuntu 15.04 server and access it from client machines like Mac, Windows.

I had already published a post earlier on installation  procedure on Ubuntu ( you can find here http://jasper-bi-suite.blogspot.in/2014/02/installation-of-jasper-server-55-pro-in.html)

Though the installation steps would be the same, the approach & the environment setup is completely different.

Environment : 
1) Server machine ( Ubuntu 15.04 - 64 bit)
2) Client machines ( Windows 10 -  64 bit -Developers/Users can access the jasperserver installed on                                   Ubuntu server locally).
3) I used my local machine for Server and Client machines where I installed VMware 10.0.1 and installed Ubuntu 15.04 server (not desktop ubuntu )  as Guest and used my regular windows 10 as Host.
4) Web browsers - Microsoft Edge

Now follow below steps if you are looking for the same setup in your local environment or for your office environment.


Quick Steps
1) Identify Ubuntu server CPU type (64 bit or 32 bit).
2) Check 8080 opened in Ubuntu server or not. If not opened, open it
3) Create a folder in Ubuntu server directory and download the Jasperserver software and apply chmod 777 command for downloaded file.

4) Install the Jasperserver software
5) Check the VMware internet routing between Host(Windows 10)  and Guest(Ubuntu).
6) Access the Jasperserver in Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10.


Steps Explained in detail :

1) Identify Ubuntu server CPU type (64 bit or 32 bit)

    #  Type uname -m command on terminal
    #  Check the OS is 64 or 32 bit

2) Check 8080 opened in Ubuntu server or not. If not opened, open it

    # Type netstat -an | grep 8080| grep LISTEN on terminal
    # If it returns nothing, that means you can use 8080 (If it been used by any other server, hmmm
        take network admin help or google(my approach) ).

3) Create a folder in Ubuntu server directory and download the Jasperserver software and apply chmod 777 command for downloaded file. 

   # Create a folder to keep the software (lets say "jasper" )

   # Download the jasperserver using wget command.
    Example :
   wget https://community.jaspersoft.com/modal_forms/nojs/jf-user-login-register?optoutdest=https://d2ev2buidpvgfo.cloudfront.net/6.1/Installers/jasperreports-server-6.1.0-linux-x64-installer.run

   # Once the download is completed apply chmod 777 command
   Example
     chomod 777 *.run
     



4) Install the Jasperserver software

 # Use below command to install the Jasperserver
 # Example :
    ./ jasperreports-server-6.1.0-linux-x64-installer.run


# Follow the on screen steps, accept the licence, click on continue to agree the licence terms and click on Y(yes) or enter till you get the progress ( in #####) of installation.
# Choose full or custom installation options (1 or 2)




5) Check the VMware internet routing between Host(Windows 10)  and Guest(Ubuntu).

# On the Menu bar go to VM -> Settings and then click on "Network Adapter" in HardwareTab
# Check "NAT" option and check "Connected" and "Connect at power on" in Device status.
# Check the ip address of Ubuntu (Guest in our case) using "ifconfig" command on the terminal.



6) Access the Jasperserver in Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10.
   
   #  Be in Host machine (windows 10) and open Microsoft Edge browser
   # call the Jasper server URL and login with superuser/superuser credentials
   #  Example : http://192.168.1.128:8080/jasperserver-pro/
