Error while launching OWS from another User

Post by Ashok »

Hi,
I have installed the OWS on the Linux OS platform under the "root" user. Here when I start my java application from the root user, it will download the ".jnlp" file and the OWS will start executing that ".jnlp" file. And it is functioning smoothly.
But when I try to launch from another user, I'm getting the error "No Suitable JVM was found to start the application". Please find the attachment.

Please let me know whether I need to add any configurations to make it work from another user.

Thanks,
Ashok

Hi,

Please find the below scenarios in which I executed ows.

1. I installed OWS in the root user and tried launching OWS. It is working fine.
2. Due to some security requirements, the direct login of the root user was blocked. I can't able to directly login the "root" user. By using "su - root" command I logged in to the "root" user. Later, If I execute OWS, am ending up with the above error. Also, all the settings are not proper.

OWS is working fine on the direct login of "root" user. But execution from other users is throwing an error.

Please let me know the solution to overcome this error.

Thanks.

This is not an OWS issue. You should install OWS on your machine such that all the users that need to use have proper access rights as OWS tries to temporarily store downloaded resources and cache them. For this it requires necessary access rights to the system.
