Hi Priya, there are some steps outlined in the troubleshooting guide Troubleshoot Tableau Server on Linux - Tableau
From what I've heard it can be a tricky process though, so if you're still running into difficulty I would recommend raising a ticket with Support.
Could you please post back to let us know how you get on?
You must create the initial administrative account for Tableau Server.
- If you configured a local identity store during setup, then specify a name and password that you want to use.
- If you configured a LDAP or Active Directory identity store during setup, then you must specify a user account that is a member of the directory.
To create the initial user, run the following
tabcmd initialuser --server localhost:80 --username '<new-admin-username>'
After you run the command, the shell will prompt for an administrative password.
Did you get this resolved?
The error message clearly says that this is an authorizations error. For some reason you do not have write access to file ~/.tableau/tsm/tsm.log. Have you run tsm -u tablxuser as another user (root?) previously? Check the ownership of everuthing in the ~/.tableau folder
First update your linux os using sudo apt-get update command and reinstall the tableau server sudo apt-get -y install gdebi-core
sudo gdebi -n tableau-server-2019-1-1_amd64.deb
sudo /opt/tableau/tableau_server/packages/scripts.2019.1.19.0215.0259/initialize-tsm --accepteula
and try again !!!
I believe you already install Tableau Server ? did you install Tableau Server with "tablxuser" or a different user ?
I'm not 100% sure, but It seems to be a permission issue.
1. "tablxuser" is part of the group "tableau" and "tsmadmin" ?
// To check who is part of these groups
// To add the user to the Tableau group :
usermod -aG tableau tablxuser
usermod -aG tsmadmin tablxuser
// Maybe the permission change for "/home/tablxuser/" or .tableau or tsm.log ?
ls -l /home/ | grep tablxuser
ls -l /home/tablxuser/.tableau
