If you get the following errors running the cogconfig.sh shell script in Unix to start Cognos Configuration, you likely have a problem with your X Window configuration:
Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class com.cognos.crconfig.CRConfigFrame
- Ensure you have X Window capable software installed on the machine in question, such as Exceed.
- Ensure that your Unix interface client has X11 forwarding enabled. In PuTTY, this is listed under Connections > SSH > X11.
