Environment

Issue



When you install the Reports Package from Symantec Enterprise Security Manager 6.1 Reporting to a UNIX computer, you see error messages that include "This Application has Unexpectedly Quit" and "Invocation of this Java Application has caused an InvocationTargetException. This application will now exit. (LAX)." For a more complete listing of this error, read the Technical Information section in this document.


Solution



This problem happens when you run the installation in a terminal session and the computer from which you run the installation does not have an X Server running. Symantec Enterprise Security Manager 6.1 Reporting requires an X Server to display windows.

To fix the problem, start an X Server on that computer and then start the Reports Package installation.
