What JRE should be run on Linux install in order to run LinuxImageCreator? Trying to create an installation image for Linux. When running LinuxImageCreator, getting an error message. Need to verify the JRE running.
In the document: Requirements for Running Siebel Image Creator, it states:
"Java Runtime Environment (JRE) must be installed on the computer where you are running Siebel Image Creator. Also, the JAVA_HOME environment variable must be set to point to the JRE installation location at the time you run Image Creator. For the required JRE version, see Siebel System Requirements and Supported Platforms on Oracle Technology Network."
I have looked through that doc indicated and cannot find specs on the JRE requirements.
Any assistance is appreciated.
I have never run the Image Creator under Linux, but I guess this is where you can get Java for Linux:
Another option might be to look in the software repository of your Linux distribution.
If all else fails, run it on a Windows machine.
When you copy the installation image to the Linux machine, you might have to check the access rights to the files.
Actually I never tried to create an image for a different platform.
I always assumed it was possible.
The image creator for Windows is called Windows_ImageCreator.exe.
If it's not already there, you can try to locate the Windows download for your version and download the first part.
Usually it should be quite small, as it only contains the manifest of the ZIP files.
In that manifest try to locate Windows_ImageCreator.exe and download the ZIP file that contains it.
Copy the Windows_ImageCreator.exe to the directory where you have extracted the Linux Jar files and try to execute it on a Windows machine.
I did a small test and along the way you do get an option to create for Linux (and other platforms).
As I haven't downloaded the Linux Jar files, it asked me the location of those files.
Have you looked in the Siebel System Requirements and Supported Platforms guide on Bookshelf for JRE version. Last I recall, it was 1.6 but with a specific build as there is a bug in OUI.
As long as you set JAVA_HOME appropriately, it should either work or tell you that the Java lib is not supported, in which case you need a later version.
