    For Linux

    First, install the development packages of the following tools and libraries: gcc, bison, flex, gperf, Perl, Ruby, SQLite, FreeType, Fontconfig, OpenSSL, and ICU. The actual package names may vary from one distribution to another.

    1. If PDF not generated in Linux machine then execute the following commands:

    • On Debian-based distro (tested on Ubuntu 14.04 and Debian 7.0), run:
    • sudo apt-get install build-essential g++ flex bison gperf ruby perl \
      libsqlite3-dev libfontconfig1-dev libicu-dev libfreetype6 libssl-dev \
      libpng-dev libjpeg-dev python libx11-dev libxext-dev ttf-mscorefonts-installer
    • If Debian 6.0 follow the steps in below link also:

      1. Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list file:

        deb squeeze main non-free contrib

      2. Comment out all other lines & save
      3. Run "sudo apt-get update"
      4. Install the packages that I want.
    • On Fedora-based distro (tested on CentOS 6, 7.6), run:
    • sudo yum -y install gcc gcc-c++ make flex bison gperf ruby \
      openssl-devel freetype-devel fontconfig-devel libicu-devel sqlite-devel \
      libpng-devel libjpeg-devel

    • If it is a Chinese or Japanese installation:
    • Please check if OpManager/classes/iTextAsian.jar is present or not.

      Note: For font issues, it is also recommended to install ttf-mscorefonts-installer package.

    • For CentOS:
    • sudo yum install libXext libXrender xorg-x11-fonts-Type1 xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi

    • For Chinese:
    • sudo yum groupinstall "Chinese Support"
      sudo yum install cjkuni-ukai-fonts

    • For Japanese:
    • sudo yum groupinstall "Japanese Support"
      sudo yum install cjkuni-fonts-common cjkuni-ukai-fonts cjkuni-uming-fonts

    For Windows

    • Check if the phantomJs process is running.
    • If not, ensure anti-virus is not blocking the phantomJs process.
    • Check Administrator privilege is given for "/OpManager/Export" folder.
    • Give Full access privilege to the user.
    • If product has been started as a service, then try the below steps:
      1. Stop the service.
      2. Right click the ManageEngine OpManager service.
      3. Go to properties → Log On.
      4. Click log on as This account and enter credential (Administrator privilege) and apply the changes done.
      5. Start the service.

    For SSL issues:

    • Open "/OpManager/Export/script/config.json" file.
    • Set, "ignoreSslErrors":true

    Other troubleshooting steps:

    • Check whether "/OpManager/Export/phantomJs/phantomjs" file is available or not. In the case of the file being unavailable, kindly contact support.
    • Connect the web GUI using <protocol>://localhost:<port> and verify if it is working fine in the installation server.
