install zenoss on ubuntu, raise No valid ZENHOME error

bxshi asked:

I’ve added an user with name zenoss, and set export ZENHOME=/usr/local/zenoss in ~/.bashrc under /home/zenoss, and when using echo $ZENHOME, it could show /usr/local/zenoss

When install zenoss, I switched to zenoss and then run install.sh under zenoss-4.2.0/inst, when it tries to run Tests, the error occured.

My answer:


Zenoss complained about:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-surefire-plugin:2.8:test (default-test) on project utils: There are test failures.

Make sure you actually have it installed:

sudo apt-get install libsurefire-java

If this does not resolve the problem, look at the file it told you to look at:
