Configuring Document Conversion Services for systems other than Windows

Configure the Document Conversion Services to complete document conversions in an operating system other than Windows™. You must complete the following steps whenever you start the Portal server from a new terminal window.

Procedure

  1. Ensure that the oiexport directory is in the PATH as wp_profile_root/PortalServer/config/oiexport:$PATH.

    For example, export PATH=wp_profile_root/PortalServer/config/oiexport:AppServer_root/java/jre/bin:$PATH

  2. Export LD_LIBRARY_PATH/LIBPATH/SHLIB_PATH to point to the oiexport directory and the graphics library directory.
    This environment variable is different for different systems, as detailed in the following table:
    Table 1. Library path variables by operating system
    Platform Library path variable
    AIX LIBPATH
    HP-UX SHLIB_PATH
    Linux LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    Solaris LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    z/OS LD_LIBRARY_PATH, LIBPATH

    In AIX®, the command might be export LIBPATH=wp_profile_root/PortalServer/config/oiexport:/usr/X11R6/lib

    Required library: On SolarisLinux™, you must install the following library to run document conversion services: libstdc++.so.5. This library is included with GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 3.2 to 3.3.6.

    You must install libstdc++.so.5 and include the folder that contains the library in the library path variable. The command might be export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=wp_profile_root/PortalServer/config/oiexport:/usr/X11R6/lib:/user/lib

  3. Run the exporter task from the wp_profile_root/PortalServer/config/oiexport directory to ensure that you installed all the libraries.
    A successful task displays the following message:
    Error: no input file was specified
    Error: no output file was specified
    Error: No output id was specified
