Resolved

We are trying to use silent installation of yellowfin. When running the installation, getting below errors:

Without specifying any JDBCDriverFiles, error is:

[root@ct-cp-yellowfin-prod tmp]# java -jar yellowfin-8.0.11-20220223-full.jar -silent install.properties
Missing key: option.db.jdbcdriverfiles
java.lang.Exception: Missing key: option.db.jdbcdriverfiles

when I give the JDBCDriverFiles=/tmp/mysql-connector-java.jar in install.properties, error given is

[root@ct-cp-yellowfin-prod tmp]# java -jar yellowfin-8.0.11-20220223-full.jar -silent install.properties
Loading class `com.mysql.jdbc.Driver'. This is deprecated. The new driver class is `com.mysql.cj.jdbc.Driver'. The driver is automatically registered via the SPI and manual loading of the driver class is generally unnecessary.
Error

The installation.properties file contains:

Hi Ravindra,

Thanks for reaching out to Yellowfin Support.

Can you please try below things, from logs I can see that there is an issue with jdbc drivers how the connection is being used, and I seem to be finding 2 solutions online;

1. Update security settings for Java

2. Change JDBC URL string. Unable to do with full installer


Note: This is to keep you informed that, currently Version 7 and 8 are out of the support scope and unfortunately we are unable to provide support on these versions. I would certainly recommend you to please give it a try by installing the latest supported version which would be Version 9. For your reference, you can get that from this link.
