3. Preparing to Install Ingres Star : Installation Requirements
Share this page                  
Installation Requirements
The following are requirements for installing Ingres Star:
The Star Server must reside on the same node as the distributed database--the createdb distdbname/star command is executed on this node.
The iidbdb (the Ingres master database) must be present before you install a Star Server.
If you are installing a new system, the iidbdb is created as part of the installation procedure.
For upgrading an installation, see the appendix “Release Compatibility.”
VMS: In a cluster installation, a distributed database is accessible from all nodes in the installation but Net must be installed. For example, assume there are three nodes in the installation, Nodes A, B and C. If the distributed database is created on Node A, Ingres Star requires Net to access the distributed database from Nodes B and C.
