Installing Vibe Data Stream Nodes on Remote Systems

Installing Vibe Data Stream Nodes on Remote Systems

To install
VDS Node
s on remote systems in silent mode, use a properties file that contains the installation options. The
VDS Node
remote installer reads the file to determine the installation options.
  1. Navigate to the
    remote_node_utils
    directory.
  2. 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:
    USER_INSTALL_DIR
    VDS Node
    installation directory. For example,
    /home/$USER/Informatica/2.2.0/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 is of the following format:
    <IP Address>
    . For example, 10.65.43.75
  3. Specify the following properties if 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.
  4. Save the properties file.
  5. Use a text editor to open the
    hostsList
    and add the host names or IP addresses of the remote machines, separated by newline characters.
  6. To run the remote installation, use the following command:
    ./remote-node.sh install
    The silent installer runs in the background. The silent installation is complete when the
    node-install.out
    and
    vds-install.out
    are created in the
    <VDS Node Installation Directory>\node\logs
    directory of the remote machine.
    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 of the remote machine. For example,
    /home/<username>/silentErrorLog.log
    . Correct the errors, delete the files from the directory where the installation failed, and run the silent installation again.
