Data Aggregator installation fails, with errors in the installation log.

These could be permission denied errors, trying to run a program from, or write to /tmp


For example: Command.run(): Cannot run program "/tmp/792691.tmp/executeScriptTmp0": error=13, Permission denied

Or the following, from a CAPC installation 

·         CAPC install fails and the install log states :

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: Insufficient space for shared


memory file:


Data Aggregator or Performance Center on Red Hat, all versions

1 GB of space, is the minimum requirement for the /tmp directory


If you do  not have enough available space in /tmp, you will get errors during installation





Add more space to /tmp

If you do not have enough available space in /tmp and cannot configure it, export the IATEMPDIR environment variable

(for the install anywhere temporary directory) to set a new location for the temporary directory, selecting a directory with more available space and sufficient permissions


Additional Information:

This issue can also happen on CAPC
