TM1 Operations Console 10.1.1 setup


Cognos TM1 10.1.1

Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 Server



How do I get the TM1 Operations Console to work on my TM1 server ?



Install cognos TM1 64 version (tm1_64b_10.1.1_win_ml.tar) to default folder, including the operations console to get the war file in place.


Do the Configuration of Cognos Configuration to test the TM1 installation.


Stop the TM1 Admin services and TM1 applications services.


Start CMD (commando prompt)

Go to C: drive.


cd c:\Program Files\IBM\cognos\tm1_64\bin64\jre\6.0\bin

to move to that folder.


Note:  On 64-bit computers, be sure to add the certificates to the bin64 folder.


Enter this to register the keystore:

keytool -import -file “C:\Program Files\IBM\cognos\tm1_64\bin64\ssl\applixca.pem” -keystore “C:\Program Files\IBM\cognos\tm1_64\bin64\jre\6.0\lib\security\cacerts” -storepass “changeit”


Start the TM1 Admin services and TM1 applications services.


Start TM1 Architect

Go into a TM1 application (  planning sample )

Double-click on TM1 application to login.

Right-click and select security  – clients/groups

Click “Add new group” from the groups menu.

Enter name of group to be: Monitor.

Click OK

Mark the users that should be able to run Operations Console to be part of this group; Monitor.

At least add the ADMIN user to the Monitor group.

Click OK and exit architect.


The IBM Cognos TM1 Operations Console uses an .xml file to identify the user

group, server, and admin host to use. Before you can run the Operations

Console, you need to update this configuration file with the information that

describes your new monitoring group.


Start Windows Explorer

Go to folder C:\Program Files\ibm\cognos\tm1_64\webapps\tm1operationsconsole\WEB-INF\configuration.

Open OpsConfig.xml in Notepad.

You want to add the admin host, TM1 server, and security group names to this

file. Enter values like this;


<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>


<adminhost name=”localhost”>

<server name = “planning sample”>








Save the file after your changes.


Start the TMI Operations Console from the URL:



serverName: computer where you have the TM1

Operations Console and Web application server


portNumber: port number where your Web

application server is running. Apache Tomcat

provided with the IBM Cognos TM1 installation

uses the default port number 9510.


If you start operations console direct on the TM1 server you should enter like this:



From the log in dialog enter values for

Adminhost:       localhost

Servername:      planning sample

Group:     Monitor

Username:          admin

Password:         apple
