Porting content from Windows PAW to an Ubuntu build

Hi,

Has anyone out there ported PAW content from a Windows build to a Ubuntu one?

Struggling to get good information on this and just wanted to reach out to the forum to see if anyone has done this and if there any gotchas?

Cheers,

Re: How to cancel a thread that cannot be cancelled in TM1 Top

There are some releases of TM1, 10.2.X roughly where the cube dependency automation on the server ignores attribute references, the PA series corrects this and so they shouldn't get missed.

Not sure if the "fix" made it into the late 10.2.2 series.

Thanks to lotsaram and Paul for sharing this, a very interesting read. If you are impacted by this you could ended up quite blocked. - Convert dimension to hierarchy based, this may be complex and won't always result in a natural query structure for the user. Plus we do not (yet, when is it coming??...

A few things to check but no dramatic insights. Is trust programmatic access to VBA checked for the user concerned? (Cross posted) Which mode of security, assuming mode 1?

Re: Automating TM1 instance monitoring v10.2.2

In the cfg you can set a chore up to run when the server is up. In this chore you could output a text files flagging the server state to a common directory, or whatever you want, maybe trigger a mail to the specific users of that instance. Upto you where you go from here, you could read this informa...

Re: Calling DBRW function without mentioning instance name in the first argument

A use case for this is also to allow migration of application workbooks from Dev to live. You can use the TM1User function to determine which instance from a known list of instances you are connected to. A1= TM1User("Dev") A2= TM1User("UAT") A3= TM1User("Prod") B1=A1 B2=If(A2="",B1,A2) B3=If(A3="",B...

Re: Journal validation - account combinations

Depends on the volume of data but I would still be inclined to merge my AB, AC, AD combos into one long ABCD valid combination dimension. Then I would only have one test to perform in my data load. Also if I am allowing direct entry to my data cube for budget purpose for example, then having the val...

Re: Journal validation - account combinations

I think you are saying that I have 4 dimensions (A, B ,C and D). Only certain combinations of !A, !B, !C and !D are valid. How do I manage / track / validate this. I'd have a dimension called Valid Code Combination that was a concatenation of the valid combinations of A, B, C and D I'd then test aga...

Re: Check if the data of two cubes are the same

A couple of thoughts 25 dimensions in a cube is pretty unusual, are you sure you have the design right or consider hierarchies in the latest release. As to your actual problem How about using DOS to compare the .cub files on the disc, I've never tried this so I'm assuming that two identical cubes at...

Re: Public Subset Alias Turned Off After Dimension Rebuild

I expect the alias is being recreated during the rebuild rather than just refreshed. Look the function attrdelete function and comment it out. If you have used the TI wizard you need to change the settings relating to the attribute.

Re: How to reference data lines as variables in TI?

You need to use Expand to translate your string reference to an indirect variable reference. sInputColl = Expand('%Coll' | numbertostring(X) | '%'); #Expand returns a string (or do it all on a single line) nInputColl = StringToNumber(sInputColl); So if Coll10 contain the value 99, when X=10 nInputCo...
