Problem installing ERA Server on fresh Ubuntu Server 14.04 x64

Recommended Posts

This is my firs post here and firs ERA server issue.
About 2 weeks ago I installed my first ERA server under Ubuntu 14.04 x64 server - installation went rather smoothly.
Yesterday I started next installation on fresh Ubuntu 14.04 x64 server, with same steps - but I am unable to complete due to database connection issue.
Here are installation steps so far:
1) installation of mysql-server, setting max_allowed_packet=33M in /etc/mysql/my.cnf
2) installation of xvfb cifs-utils unixodbc libmyodbc
3) set /etc/odbcinst.ini as follows:

            Description = ODBC for MySQL
            Driver = /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/libmyodbc.so
            Setup = /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/libodbcmyS.so
            FileUsage = 1

4) create database and user for ERA Server (era_db and era_user respectively) - this was new step comparing to previous installation
5) issue installer command:

sudo ./Server-Linux-x86_64.sh \
--skip-license \
--db-driver='MySQL' \
--db-hostname= \
--db-port=3306 \
--db-admin-username=root \
--db-admin-password=[my_pass] \
--server-root-password=[my_pass] \
--db-type='MySQL Server' \
--db-name=era_db \
--db-user-username=era_user \
--db-user-password=[my_pass] \

The installer output:

The most important part of /var/log/eset/RemoteAdministrator/EraServerInstaller.log file:

I need to mention that I am able to log with root account (and password passed to installer) to mysql console. I tried also:

- changing password for mysql root account and creating new administrator account

- using mysql root and password account in installer options --db-user-username and --db-user-password options

- using 'localhost' and machine name in installer option --db-hostname

but it doesn't solve problem.

I have found the reason for this issue. It was ODBC definition in /etc/odbcinst.ini. There shouldn't be any leading spaces/tabs before Driver and Setup statements - file content should look like this:

Description = ODBC for MySQL
Driver = /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/libmyodbc.so
Setup = /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/libodbcmyS.so
FileUsage = 1
