Today I continued my efforts at installing Luminis IV on brax. I had to ask Ed to reimage the box as the luminis isntalled may have messed things up quite bad. At this point I am back to the initial error that I had reported to Sungard. Hopefully tomorrow will bring better luck.
I also received permission to attempt a Luminis III to IV migration during day time hours. The migration did not complete successfully, however this time it appeared to be failing dealing with the layout fragments. This is different then the Apr 23rd attempt that caused Sungard to think it was a LDAP suffix issue. I have updated the Sungard ticket with this new information in case it adjsuts the troubleshooting.
Continued my attempts at installing Luminis IV on a RHEL 4 system. Ran into some issues that were sovled easily. Namely clearing the DISPLAY environment variable. However this still did not work in the end. Still in touch with the vendor on how to proceed.
I am also attempting another migration of Luminis III to Luminis IV. I have not heard back from the vendor but am going to try and remove the mention of a nonexistent user from one of the xml documents as the last attempt did complain about that user. I raised this with the vendor but they felt it was not the issue so I do not have high hopes, but despite that I figure it is worth a try.
Spent the day trying to install Luminis IV on brax. Brax is replacing our current Luminis IV test system apollo. Brax is also giving us an opportunity to install Luminis IV on a RHEL 4 system. However I ran into a number of issues throughout the day that caused the installation to fail requiring contact with the vendor.
At the end of the day the suggestion was to wipe the installation and try again. I was able to wipe the installation prior to heading for home so will attempt the install tomorrow.
I aslo found time to do a mockup of the earnings statement channel for a meeting that Kevin was going into tomorrow. This mockup can be viewed at the following location http://luminisd.cc.umanitoba.ca/flex/earnings.html
