Installing Vibe Data Stream in Silent Mode

Installing
Vibe Data Stream
in Silent Mode

To install VDS without user interaction, use the
SilentInput.properties
properties file to install in silent mode. The VDS installer reads the file to determine the installation options. The
SilentInput.properties
file is stored in the root directory of the VDS installer files.
  1. Use a text editor to open and change the values of the properties in the
    SilentInput.properties
    file.
    Configure the following properties:
    INSTALLATION_MODE
    Set the value as 1 to perform a fresh installation of VDS.
    INSTALL_MODE
    Indicates the installation mode.
    Set the value as 1 to install components in custom mode.
    SECURE_MODE
    Indicates if the secure communication, storage and configuration must be enabled for the
    VDS
    components.
    If the value is 0, secure mode is not enabled. If the value is 1, secure mode is enabled.
    INSTALLATION_TYPE
    Indicates whether to install VDS in express mode or custom mode.
    Set the value as 2 to perform a custom installation.
    INSTALL_AGENTNODE
    Indicates whether to install the VDS Node.
    If the value is 0, the VDS Node is not installed. If the value is 1, the VDS Node is installed.
    INSTALL_ADMINCOMPS
    Indicates whether to install the administration components when the
    INSTALLATION_TYPE
    is 1.
    If the value is 0, the components are not installed. If the value is 1, the components are installed.
    INSTALL_ADMIND
    Indicates whether to install the Administrator Daemon when the
    INSTALLATION_TYPE
    is 2.
    If the value is 0, the Administrator Daemon is not installed. If the value is 1, the Administrator Daemon is installed.
    INSTALL_ZOOKEEPER
    Indicates whether to install ZooKeeper.
    If the value is 0, the Administrator Daemon is not installed. If the value is 1, the Administrator Daemon is installed.
    USER_INSTALL_DIR
    The VDS installation directory. The location must have write permissions enabled. For example, C:\\Informatica\\VDS\\2.3.1
    LICENSE_KEY_LOC
    The path and name of the
    VDS
    license key file.
    IS_AGREED
    Set this to
    true
    to accept the license agreement.
    DOMAIN_PSSWD
    and
    DOMAIN_CNFRM_PSSWD
    The password to the Informatica domain.
    If you choose to install the Administrator Daemon, enter the following properties:
    ADMIND_LBMRD_PORT
    Port for the Topic Resolution Daemon (LBMRD).
    Default is 15380.
    ADMIND_HTTP_PORT
    Port on which the
    Administrator Daemon
    runs an HTTP or HTTPS server from which the VDS Node fetches configuration.
    ADMIND_MONITOR_PORT
    Port that the
    Administrator Daemon
    uses to receive statistics from the VDS Node.
    H2_PORT
    Port of the H2 database.
    DOMAIN_PORT
    Port on which the domain is started.
    If you choose to install the VDS Node, enter the following properties:
    NETWORK_INTERFACE
    This is an optional property.
    If you are installing the components on a multi-homed host, specify the network interface
    The interface can have one of the following formats:
    • IP Address -
      <IP Address>
      . For example, 10.65.43.75
    • Interface name. For example, Eth0
    ZOOKEEPER_URL
    The IP address and port that the
    Administrator Daemon
    uses to communicate with Apache ZooKeeper.
    The IP address and port combination has the following format:
    <IP Address>:<port>
    You can enter multiple comma-separated IP address and port combinations. If you have configured high availability on ZooKeeper and one instance of ZooKeeper is down, the
    Administrator Daemon
    connects to the next available ZooKeeper server.
    NODE_PORTNUMBER
    The
    VDS Node
    uses this port to send monitoring statistics.
    The default port is 15384.
    If you are installing all VDS components or only the Administration components when the
    INSTALLATION_TYPE
    is 2, enter the following properties to enable security:
    KERBEROS_CHECKBOX
    Indicate if Kerberos authentication is enabled for the domain of PowerCenter.
    Specify
    set
    to enable Kerberos authentication. Specify
    unset
    to disable Kerberos authentication.
    KERBEROS_KEYTAB_FIELD
    Indicate whether you want to provide the location of the keytab files.
    Specify
    set

    if you do not want to provide the location of the keytab files.
    KERBEROS_KEYTAB_LOCATION
    Specify the location of the keytab files.
    SSL_CHECKBOX
    Indicate whether SSL authentication is enabled for the domain of PowerCenter.
    Specify
    set
    to enable SSL authentication. Specify
    unset
    if you do not want to enable SSL authentication.
    If you are installing the VDS Node when the
    INSTALLATION_TYPE
    is 1, enter the following properties to enable security:
    KERBEROS_CHECKBOX
    Indicate if Kerberos authentication is enabled for the domain of PowerCenter.
    Specify
    set
    to enable Kerberos authentication. Specify

    Specify
    set

  2. Save the properties file.
  3. Run the silent installation.
    • In Windows: run silentInstall.bat
    • In Linux: run silentInstall.sh
    Assign execute permissions before running the install.sh script or run the sh ./install.sh command.
    The silent installer runs in the background.
    If you incorrectly configure the properties file or if the installation directory is not accessible, the silent installation will fail. View the installation log file in the user home directory. For example, C:\silentErrorLog.log. Correct the errors, and run the silent installation again.
