Can’t see images on Cognos Dispatcher – Simple Fix

I took me a lot of time to successfully installing Cognos for IBM Connections 4 and in the end I finally could access the dispatcher through

http://yourcognosserver/cognos/servlet/dispatch
(or http://yourcognosserver/cognos/servlet/dispatch/ext)

BUT it looked like this, no images at all 🙁

This wasn’t exactly what I expected. Looking at the image URL’s and the source files on the Cognos WAS server revealed the issue.

To fix this problem just copy the the ps and skins folder from
WAS_INSTALL\profiles\AppSrv01\installedApps\YOURCELL\Cognos.ear\p2pd.war\servlet
to
WAS_INSTALL\profiles\AppSrv01\installedApps\YOURCELL\Cognos.ear\p2pd.war

Refresh you browser and relax:

Hi Klaus,

are you sure, that it is YOURCELL? I deployed on Connections 4.5 and i find Cognos.ear under MYNODE.

So the path is WAS_INSTALL\profiles\AppSrv01\installedApps\MYNODE\Cognos.ear…

Thanks for sharing!

Regards
Christoph
