Upgrading GlobalSight
Comparing GlobalSight with WorldServer

This guide describes how to install GlobalSight application server on Ubuntu server. If not specified, the Ubuntu Server is 14.04 LTS version. This guide has been updated to cater for GlobalSight version 8.6.7.

Important: beginning with Ubuntu 15.04 version, system and service manager systemd is used as default system init daemon. Unfortunately, the GlobalSight daemon globalsight cannot work properly with systemd. Installing GlobalSight on Ubuntu Server 15.04 and above version is not recommended.

Prerequisites

Unzipping creates the following folders:

  • 3rd_party_software
  • Converters
  • DesktopIcon
  • GlobalSight

Some features in GlobalSight require running Java plugin on browsers, but now they cannot work on lately Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox versions. We recommend using Microsoft Internet Explorer to perform related jobs. These Java Applet components will be removed from GlobalSight gradually.

Installing the GlobalSight core application

Pre-installation procedures

  1. Ensure that $JAVA_HOME is in your PATH variable
    Type: echo $JAVA_HOME
    The expected result should look like below:
    Example: /usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_45
    Type: echo $PATH
    The expected result should look like below:
    Example: /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_45/bin
  2. Ensure that you can access the GlobalSight database from the MySQL command line tool. The GlobalSight installer uses command 'mysql' to connect to the MySQL database server and to create tables for the GlobalSight application.
    Type: mysql -u <globalsight_user_name> -p <globalsight_database_name> -h <mysql_hostname_or_ip_ address> -P <mysql_port>
    Example: MySQL -uglobalsight -p globalsight -hlocalhost -P 3306
  3. Create a user called jboss for the GlobalSight core application
    Type: sudo useradd -m -s /bin/bash jboss
    Type: sudo passwd jboss
    Type: sudo adduser jboss sudo
  4. Log in as user jboss
    Type: su -l jboss
  5. Unjar GlobalSight.zip to /home/jboss directory
    Type: mkdir GlobalSight && cd GlobalSight
    Type: jar xvf /path/to/GlobalSight.zip
  6. Go to the install script directory and add the executable attribute to script file Install.sh
    Type: cd <globalsight_home_directory>/install
    Example: cd /home/jboss/GlobalSight/install
    Type: chmod u+x Install.sh
    Note: we will call the GlobalSight core application directory as <globalsight_home_directory> later.
  7. Create GlobalSight documents and file storage directory
    Type: mkdir -p /path/to/globalsight/docs/and/filestorage/directory
    Assume that we create two directories named 'docs' and 'filestorage' under directory '/home/jboss/welocalize/', the command will be:
    Example: mkdir -p /home/jboss/welocalize/{docs,filestorage}
    If you also need create directory for GlobalSight converters, you can use command like below:
    Example: mkdir -p /home/jboss/welocalize/{docs,filestorage,winfiles}
    Note: we will call the documents directory as <globalsight_document_directory>, and file storage directory as <globalsight_filestorage_directory> later.
  8. Update GlobalSight daemon template file <globalsight_home_directory>/jboss/util/bin/service.sh.template
    Insert -c ${JBOSS_USER} -d ${JBOSS_HOME} between --background and --user
    Example: start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --background -c ${JBOSS_USER} -d ${JBOSS_HOME} --user ${JBOSS_USER} --exec ${JBOSS_HOME}/bin/standalone.sh
    Example: start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --background -c ${JBOSS_USER} -d ${JBOSS_HOME} --user ${JBOSS_USER} --exec ${JBOSS_HOME}/bin/jboss-cli.sh -- --connect command=:shutdown
    Note: this modification ensures that GlobalSight daemon are always running as user jboss.

Installing GlobalSight core application

  1. Run the install script
    Type: sudo PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH ./Install.sh
    Note: you can expand above command to sudo PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH ./Install.sh | tee globalsight_install.log. The command redirects output on the Console to file globalsight_install.log. It may help you identify errors if GlobalSight installation fails.

The GlobalSight Installation interface starts.

Check the console for any errors that may have arisen during creation of the database. If you have appended | tee globalsight_install.log to command sudo PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH ./Install.sh, you can find the log file in current directory to see what fails during installation.

Post-installation procedures

Change the ownership of GlobalSight application

  1. Set jboss as the owner of GlobalSight application server
    Type: sudo chown -R jboss:jboss <globalsight_home_directory>
    Example: sudo chown -R jboss:jboss /home/jboss/GlobalSight
  2. Set jboss as the owner of GlobalSight documents and file storage directory
    Type: sudo chown -R jboss:jboss <globalsight_document_directory>
    Type: sudo chown -R jboss:jboss <globalsight_filestorage_directory>
    Example: sudo chown -R jboss:jboss /home/jboss/welocalize/docs
    Example: sudo chown -R jboss:jboss /home/jboss/welocalize/filestorage

Set the start and stop service script executable

Type: sudo chmod u+x <globalsight_home_directory>/jboss/server/bin/standalone.sh
Example: sudo chmod u+x /home/jboss/GlobalSight/jboss/server/bin/standalone.sh
Type: sudo chmod u+x <globalsight_home_directory>/jboss/server/bin/jboss-cli.sh
Example: sudo chmod u+x /home/jboss/GlobalSight/jboss/server/bin/jboss-cli.sh

Configuring GlobalSight Web Services (optional)

The Web services API allows any client, regardless of implementation technology or operating system, to connect and exchange data with GlobalSight. Thus you can specify the IP addresses that are allowed to connect to GlobalSight.

To configure IP filters for Web services

  1. Log in to the GlobalSight as super administrator user
  2. Click Remote IP Filter for Webservices on home page
  3. Click New to add the remote IP address information
    Installubuntu12 866.png

    Note: You can use an asterisk (*) as a wildcard in IP addresses. For example, the IP address 192.168.1.* allows all network IP addresses that begin with 192.168.1 to use GlobalSight Web services.
  4. Click Save

When create a new company, make sure that Enable IP Filter option is enabled. Then IP filters will take effect for that company.

Configuring Samba server (optional)

To work with GlobalSight converters installed on Windows system, you may need configure a Samba server to share files on Ubuntu server.

Prerequisites

  • Make sure Samba server is installed
    Type: smbd -V
    To install Samba server
    Type: sudo apt-get -y install samba
  • The current user has sudo privilege to modify Samba configuration file

To configure Samba

The main configuration file for Samba server is /etc/samba/smb.conf. You need sudo privilege to edit it.

Samba configuration varies as different network and security levels.

  • Below example assume that your GlobalSight application works in a Windows workgroup. And only computers installed the converters can connect to GlobalSight application server.
    1. Update or add below lines under [global] section
      workgroup = <your_workgroup_name>, replace <your_workgroup_name> with the real workgroup name
      netbios name = <hostname>, replace <hostnamee> with the short hostname of Ubuntu server
      security = user
      wins server = <wins_server_ip_address>, replace <wins_server_ip_address> with the real ip address of WINS server
    2. Set shared directory that GlobalSight converters will use for processing files
      [<Name>], replace <Name> with a meaningful name of your shared directory
      path = /path/to/conversion/directory, the absolute path to conversion directory, and it should matches the directory settings when you install GlobalSight
      browseable = yes
      writeable = yes
      guest ok = yes
      force user = jboss
      hosts allow = <allowed_ip_addresses>, replace <allowed_ip_addresses> with real ip addresses, for example, 192.168.1.0/24 allows connections from private networks 192.168.1.
      hosts deny = <denied_ip_addresses>, replace <denied_ip_addresses> with real ip addresses, for example, 0.0.0.0/0 refuses all connections from other computers.
    • The whole settings are as follows:
      [global]
      workgroup = GLOBALSIGHT
      netbios name = GSVM1
      security = user
      wins server = 192.168.1.1
      [converter1]
      browseable = yes
      writeable = yes
      guest ok = yes
      force user = jboss
      hosts allow = 127.0.0.1 192.168.1.0/24
      hosts deny = 0.0.0.0/0
      Note: the jboss user must have the read/write privileges for the shared directory.
  • Another example allows Samba connection with user authentication, only user jboss allowed.
    [global]
    workgroup = GLOBALSIGHT
    netbios name = GSVM2
    security = user
    encrypt passwords = yes
    valid users = jboss
    wins server = 192.168.1.1
    [converter2]
    browseable = yes
    writeable = yes
    guest ok = no
    Note: you should set a Samba connection password for user jboss, make sure it differs from the password for system login.
    Type: sudo smbpasswd -d jboss
  • Verify no errors in the configuration
    Type: testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf
  • Restart Samba to make the configuration take effect
    Type: sudo service smbd restart
  • Verify the shared directory in Windows Explorer
    Type the following link in Windows Explorer to open the shared folder
    \\<ubuntu_server_hotname_or_ip>\<shared_folder_name>
    Example: \\192.168.1.29\converter

If your GlobalSight application server is a domain member of your organization, read Part II. Server Configuration Basics - Chapter 6. Domain Membership for the Samba configuration example.
