Installation of TIM version 9.6 on Linux gives an "Invalid EULA file specified" message.
This was seen in issue #21962414. Customer downloaded the TIM 9.6 file tim-188.8.131.52.502646-0.Linux.el6.x86_64-install.tar and attempted to install. An EULA file is provided during the installation. However, the installer gives the error message, "Invalid CA EULA file specified".
Root cause - While unzipping the tar file tim-184.108.40.206.502646-0.Linux.el6.x86_64-install.tar, if the command tar -xvf is used, then the EULA file will not be accepted.
Fix - The extracted file needs to be in .gz format to allow the EULA file to be accepted. Use this command tar -zxvf tim-220.127.116.11.502646-0.Linux.el6.x86_64-install.tar to extract the TIM files. After doing this, the EULA file should be accepted and no invalid EULA messages should appear.
Below is a list of what each tar option means.
- x - extract files
- c - create archive
- t - list files
- v - verbose (list files as it processes them)
- j - use bz2 compression
- z - use gz compression
- f - read or write files to disk
