    Description

      When installing a Couchbase Server rpm, it prints out some links for Transparent Huge Pages and Swappiness if the settings are not set correctly.

       

      It looks like these links no longer work. They both redirect to the docs homepage:

      $ sudo rpm -i couchbase-server-enterprise-6.6.0-centos7.x86_64.rpm
      Warning: Transparent hugepages looks to be active and should not be.
      Please look at https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/server/current/install/thp-disable.html as for how to PERMANENTLY alter this setting.
      Warning: Swappiness is not set to 0.
      Please look at https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/server/current/install/install-swap-space.html as for how to PERMANENTLY alter this setting.

            Thanks Ben Brooks. I'll add redirects to handle links from older versions.

            Dave Finlay For the upcoming versions, we should update the links to docs in the source code. Could you help reassign this ticket to the right team member?

            This is installer code - assigning to Wayne to find the right home.

            Amarantha Kulkarni Last year we were asked (MB-33003) to switch those URLs away from using 'current' and pointing to version-specific URLs. So I won't make the fourth change listed above, and I'm switching the thp-disable and install-swap-space links to use the version number rather than current as well (but using the new docs.couchbase.com URL).

            Installer URLs fixed. Amarantha Kulkarni, I'm assigning to you now to fix up the redirects for the older URLs. This was independently discovered by Perry Krug (see MB-42301) so I guess it's something people see.
