This white paper is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide on how install the IBM Connections 4.0 Metrics application on Red Hat Linux with IBM DB2. You will learn how to prepare DB2, and how to install/configure IBM Cognos and IBM Connections with the Metrics application on a one-node environment.
The IBM Connections 4.0 Metrics application has four kinds of roles: “metrics-report-run”, “admin”, “community-metrics-run”, and “metrics-reader”. This article introduces these roles, including their purpose and default mapped user, and what they do within Connections Metrics.
To work well, the new Metrics component in IBM Connections 4.0 needs the deployment of IBM Cognos Business Intelligence. This white paper describes how to prepare a DB2 instance and install IBM Connections in a single-node environment, with emphasis on installing and configuring Metrics and Cognos components on AIX.
