FYI: This has been resolved with the help of support. We were installing this on a separate E:\ which was only configured with Administrator Group security. I added User group security with Read/Execute privileges and installation was successful.
I take the same error, but I can't fix it.
Can you explain me more? How can I fix that issue?
I take the same error, when trying to install Tableau Server 7.0.
"Tableau Server initialization failed. See intall log at C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\logs\tabadmin.log"
I'm getting this error state with a file not inflating out of the installer - tabmigrate.jar - and then right at the end of initialisation it's failing. I'll try downloading it again - is anyone else having this issue?
Emre...are you upgrading from a previous version or replacing existing? If replacing, make sure you delete files at both locations:
C:\Program Files\Tableau \Tableau Server
C:\Program Data\Tableau\Tableau Server
Otherwise make sure your server account is set up: http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/serverrunasuser
(you shouldn't have to modify registry settings)
I take the same error.I finished the steps in the manual that Ed Egan supported(http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/serverrunasuser).I have tried install it on windows server 2003 sp2 ,windows server 2008 r2 with the windows user administratorand windows 7 Ultimate with a windows user who have administrator role.But it's not working.And what's the database components that tableau used???Logs always said "Unable to init component Components::Database".Please help me!Thanks a lot!!!
A support ticket is your best bet. You'll likely need to know the time of the failures so you can print the proper logs when needed.
I'd have to agree...at this point I would drop an email to tableau support.
I have submitted the support request. I will send the solution here if I get an answer.
The issue was solved.
I got an answer blow from email@example.com,
Tableau Server installs do not correctly complete when the Regional Language option of Windows is set to Simplified Chinese.
Change the language option to US English then install the product. After the install completes, you can change the setting
back to Chinese.
So changing the regional language options allows the install to complete.
It is not working everytime. I found that solution one month ago. It seems like Oracle issue. As we know that oracle product wants to samething, when you try to download oracle server you should also need to change regional setting.
I try it on my computer and I install server with no error. But I made same thing with my customer it gives an error.
I just attached my error screenshots.
at the end of the installation it gives "Server was unable to detect if Tableau server started."
You can check my screenshots and easily understand the errors.
If you know the solution, please share with me. My customer waits that solution.
Are there anyone have an advice to solve that issue? I wrote many mail to support but their solution can't fix my problem.
My customer waits answer from me. This case is so important.
I will wait answers for that issue.
I have no idea about your issue..
I think that reinstalling your OS maybe can solve the issue..
Emre - do you still have your 6.1 version or the backup from it? If so my suggestion is stay with it / go back. So far 7.0 Server isn't worth the trouble.
Thanks to Dean Zhang. Your method is OK.
