Pivotal Greenplum Command Center v3.2.2

Downloading and Running the Greenplum Command Center Installer

Download and Run the Installer

Important: The gpadmin user owns and executes the Greenplum Command Center software, which is installed in the /usr/local directory by default. Before you begin installing, ensure that the gpadmin user has write permission in the directory where you will install the software. Be sure to prepare the standby master host in the same way. Alternatively, you can run the installer as root and, after installation, change the owner of the installation directory and its contents to gpadmin.

Follow these steps as gpadmin to download and install the Greenplum Command Center software.

  1. Download the Greenplum Command Center installer file from the Greenplum Database section of Pivotal Network. Installer files are available for Linux 64-bit platforms.

  2. Unzip the installer file.

    $ unzip greenplum-cc-web-3.X.X-LINUX-x86_64.zip
    
  3. Launch the installer with bash:

    $ /bin/bash greenplum-cc-web-3.X.X-LINUX.bin
    
  4. Read through the license agreement. When you reach the bottom, type yes to accept the license agreement.

  5. The installer prompts you to provide an installation path. Press Enter to accept the default installation path (/usr/local/greenplum-cc-web-X.X.X), or enter an absolute path to another install location. You must have write permission in the location you specify.

  6. The installer then asks if you want to install on the standby master.

    • Enter no if you do not want to install the software to the standby master host now. You can install the software to the standby master later using the gpccinstall utility. See Install Greenplum Command Center Software on Additional Hosts.
    • Enter yes to install the Greenplum Command Center software on the standby master host, then enter the name of the host.
  7. The installer completes with a summary of the actions that were performed.

Note:
If you have performed the previous steps as any user other than gpadmin, you need to change ownership and permissions of the installation directory before you continue.

Change the ownership of the installation directory:

# chown -R gpadmin:gpadmin greenplum-cc-web-X.X.X

Change the permissions of the installation directory:

# chmod -R 755 greenplum-cc-web-X.X.X

Install Greenplum Command Center Software on Additional Hosts

Follow the steps in this section to install the Greenplum Command Center software on the standby master host or on other hosts where you want to run Greenplum Command Center console instances.

Run the gpccinstall utility as the gpadmin user on the host where you installed the Greenplum Command Center software.

  1. Create a text file containing the names of the standby master host and other hosts where the software is to be installed, one name per line. Do not include the name of the host where you ran the installer. Hostnames must be resolvable in DNS. For example:

    smdw
    gpspare
    
  2. Source the Greenplum Database and Command Center path files.

    $ source /usr/local/greenplum-db/greenplum_path.sh
    $ source /usr/local/greenplum-cc-web/gpcc_path.sh
    
  3. As gpadmin, run the gpccinstall utility to install Command Center on all hosts listed in the host file you created.

    $ gpccinstall -f hostfilename
    

    where hostfilename is the name of the host file you created.
