goal

RconJ on Unix/Linux

fact

RedHat Linux 7.1

Novell RConJ

Novell RConsoleJ

note

This is not a supported solution from Novell, therefore no support can be provided.

symptom

RConJ is not provided for Unix/Linux.

fix

To get RConJ working on Unix/Linux you must have one of the following:

  • ConsoleOne(1.2d or later) must have been installed and working.
  • Working 3rd party JVM (JDK or JRE)

 

  • With ConsoleOne
    1.  Copy rconsolej.jar and slp-sp.zip from sys:/public/mgmt/ConsoleOne/1.2/lib to /usr/ConsoleOne/lib using ftp, or other means
    2.  Create a rconj.sh in /usr/ConsoleOne:
       // CUT
       java -version

       IBMJREHOME=/opt/IBMJava2-13/jre

       rconjpath=$IBMJREHOME/lib
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/snapins/core/console.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/lib/mach/mach.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/lib/mach/admin.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/lib/core/ndsNameSpace.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/consoleOne.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/consoleOneCore.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/consoleOneExt/swing.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/consoleOneExt/jh.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/consoleOneExt/collections.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/consoleOneExt/jgl3.1.0.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/consoleOneExt/widgets.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/consoleOneExt/jndi.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/consoleOneExt/njcl.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/lib/rconsolej.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/ConsoleOne/lib/slp-sp.zip

       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usrConsoleOne/help

       $IBMJREHOME/bin/java -classpath $CLASSPATH:$rconjpath com.novell.application.rconsolej.RConsoleJ
       // CUT
    3.  Flag the rconj.sh executable: chmod 755 rconj.sh
    4.  Run /usr/ConsoleOne/rconj.sh and you should be presented with your normal RconJ login window.

  • Working 3. party JVM
    1. Copy rconsolej.jar and slp-sp.zip from sys:/public/mgmt/ConsoleOne/1.2/lib to /usr/RConJ/lib using ftp, or other means.
    2. Create a rconj.sh in /usr/RConJ
       java -version
       rconjpath=/usr/RConJ/lib/rconsolej.jar
       rconjpath=$rconjpath:/usr/RConJ/lib/slp-sp.zip
       java -classpath $CLASSPATH:$rconjpath com.novell.application.rconsolej.RConsoleJ
    3. Flag the rconj.sh executable: chmod 755 rconj.sh
    4.  Run /usr/RConJ/rconj.sh and you should be presented with your normal RConJ login window. There will be some error on the console, but it works.

For both solutions, depending on the desktop window (X Setup), RConJ may look different on Unix/Linux than on Windows.
