Setting the display on UNIX systems

The UNIX version of the Cluster Manager (Java Console) requires an X-Windows desktop. Setting the display is not required on Windows workstations.

To set the display on UNIX systems

  1. Type the following command to grant the system permission to appear on the desktop:
    # xhost +
  2. Configure the shell environment variable DISPLAY on the system where Cluster Manager will be launched. For example, if you use Korn shell, type the following command to appear on the system myws:
    # export DISPLAY=myws:0
