Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 962393
Dashbuilder does not support all DBs required by PRD
Last modified: 2014-08-06 16:09:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Based on latest BRMS/BPMS PRD (see https://docspace.corp.redhat.com/docs/DOC-122826) the dashbuilder should support the following databases:
MS SQL Server 2008
IBM DB2 9.7
MySQL 5.1 & 5.5
PostgreSQL 8.4 & 9.1
RHEL 5.5 PostgreSQL config 8.4 (as delivered)
However based on information from developers (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=961679 -> see section: Supported databases) the application currently supports the following databases:
* Oracle 10g & 11g
* MS SQL Server 2005 & 2008
* MySQL 5.1 & 5.5
* PostgreSQL 8.4
Baded on that the support for following databases/versions is missing:
IBM DB2 9.7
From BZ#961679 it looks like PostgreSQL 9.2 was tested and it works?
This will not be a blocker from a Beta release perspective, hence setting target milestone to ER2.
Added IBM DB2 9.7 support and tested.
Verified support for PostgreSQL 9.2.
However to we are currently not able to verify support of IBM DB2 9.7. We must wait for eng ops to check block size settings of our DB2 instance, because the application doesn't work with default block size. See https://engineering.redhat.com/rt/Ticket/Display.html?id=249643 so we know
Finally after some complications (see https://engineering.redhat.com/rt/Ticket/Display.html?id=249643) we were able to get instance of DB2 9.7 that is configured as dashbuilder requires. We managed to get the BPMS (business central + dashbuilder) deployed without errors on DB2 9.7. We are now able to open and login to the dashbuilder UI -> Closing this bugzilla as verified.
However, the smoke test of the dashbuilder failed. New bugzilla will be opened for that issue.
