Based on the time of day that you submitted this question, it's possible that you ran into an issue that we had with an incorrect installer being published to the download site, if you are referencing an issue with the Windows installer. Linux should be unaffected by this issue. The incorrect installer was missing the new TSM bits. Please try the resolution below:
1. Download the correct installer again from the download site https://www.tableau.com/support/releases/server/2018.2
2. Uninstall the incorrect version.
3. Install the correct version
You can check by the size of the installer (TableauServer-64bit-2018-2-0.exe)
- Incorrect: 1,337,646,360 bytes
- Correct: 1,456,885,296 bytes
Let me know if this helps!
Based on the instruction Install and Initialize TSM , I'm supposed to select destination location.
However, I couldn't change intallation directory when I was installing Tableau server 2018.2(2018.18.0627.2230).
Please help to check the issue.
Same issue for me, the installer never asks me if I want to change the installation dirrectory.
I am testing installation on a test server, and, when I see what is posted, I will wait before upgrading to 2018.2.
We have not been used to this before.
Now I have another problem:
I have uninstalled 2018.2 and deleted all folders.
I reinstalled 2018.1.3 in a custom folder.
Now I want to lauch 2018.2 installation program and I get the message "You already have this version of Tableau Server installed"
I checked in the contraol panel, the version installed is 2018.1.
I am stuck...
We had a similar situation (Installed 2018.2 got an error, uninstalled 2018.2, reinstalled 2018.1 went to install 2018.2 and got the error above). We ended up needing to run the Obliterate Command in order to proceed with the upgrade.
C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\packages\scripts.<version>\
tableau-server-obliterate.cmd -y -y -y -l
thank you for your reply.
Before reinstalling 2018.1, I had uninstalled 2018.2 and removed the Tableau Server directory.
I have reinstalled 2018.1 on D: drive, but I can't find the '
The obliterate command is in the extracted files for the 2018.2 upgrade. Are you getting the error before the 2018.2 files get extracted out?
as soon as I launch the installer.
If you want to change the installers default installation path, these are already
stored in Environment Variables of Windows Operating System
You can go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts\ and click Change My Environment Variables
If you see (4) Tableau Variables please delete the those.
After you deleted it, run again the installer and you can now change the installation directory path you want
See my reply below, that will also solve your problem by following the instruction.
after removing environment variables, I could change the directory installation.
Now I have to learn and rewrite all my tabadmin stuf .....
