Installing the Vibe Data Stream Node in Silent Node

Installing the Vibe Data Stream Node in Silent Node

To install the
VDS Node
without user interaction, install in silent mode by using a properties file that contains the installation options. The
VDS Node
installer reads the file to determine the installation options.
  1. Use a text editor to open and change the values of the properties in the
    SilentInput.properties
    file.
    The following table describes the installation properties that you can change:
    INSTALL_TYPE
    Set the value to 0 to perform a fresh installation of the VDS Node.
    USER_INSTALL_DIR
    The VDS Node installation directory. The location must have write permissions enabled. For example, C:\\Informatica\2.3.1\\VDS.
    ZOOKEEPER_URL
    The IP address and port that the
    VDS Node
    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
    VDS Node
    connects to the next available ZooKeeper server.
    Do not use the http prefix with the IP address and port combination.
    SECURE_MODE
    Indicates if the secure communication, storage and configuration must be enabled for the VDS Node.
    If the value is 0, secure mode is not enabled. If the value is 1, secure mode is enabled.
    NETWORK_INTERFACE
    Optional. The network interface if you are installing the components on a multi-homed host.
    The interface has the following format:
    <IP Address>
    . For example, 10.65.43.75
  2. Specify the following properties if you install the VDS Node on a machine where PowerCenter is not running and you want to enable security:
    PC_KERBEROS_ENABLED
    Indicate if you want to enable Kerberos authentication. Specify
    true
    to enable Kerberos authentication.
    KERBEROS_KEYTAB_LOCATION
    The location to the
    vds_node.keytab
    file.
    PC_TLS_ENABLED
    Indicate if you want to enable SSL. Specify
    true
    to enable SSL authentication.
  3. Specify the following properties if you install the VDS Node on a machine where PowerCenter is running and you want to enable security:
    KERBEROS_KEYTAB_LOCATION
    The location to the keytab files.
  4. Save the properties file.
  5. 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. The silent installation is complete when the
    node-install.out
    is created.
    The silent installation fails if you incorrectly configure the properties file or if the installation directory is not accessible. View the installation log file in the user home directory. For example, C:\silentErrorLog.log. Correct the errors, and run the silent installation again.
