Install VectorH Using RPM Commands
As an alternative to using the install script, you can install VectorH by invoking RPM directly on the master node.
Vector packages that can be installed include the following:
Core – Prerequisite of all other packages
DBMS – DBMS Server
NET – Communications servers
Director – Actian Director
Packages Required
Core and Net
Core and DBMS
Core, DBMS, Net
Core, DBMS, Net
GUI-based management tools
To install the packages
Invoke RPM with the appropriate installation flags, including the path to the package you want to install, as follows:
rpm ‑Uvh path_to_directory/actian-vectorh-5.0.0....rpm path_to_directory/actian-vectorh-dbms-5.0.0....rpm path_to_directory/actian-vectorh-net-5.0.0....rpm
To install all packages in the same directory
Specify the following:
rpm ‑Uvh path_to_directory/*.rpm
To install a package into a non-default location (that is, with an II_SYSTEM value other than the default)
Use the ‑prefix flag when invoking RPM. The following command installs the specified package with II_SYSTEM=/home/actian/VectorH:
rpm ‑Uvh ‑‑prefix=/home/actian/VectorH path_to_directory/actian-vectorh_package.rpm
Only one VectorH instance per machine can be installed when using the RPM command. Other VectorH instances can be installed using the other methods.
All packages installed in a single instance must have the same value of II_SYSTEM. If you use the prefix flag to install the base package, you must install all subsequent packages with the same –prefix value.
No RPM packages are required to be installed on the other DataNodes. All required files will be "synced" to the other nodes during the installation process.
After you have installed VectorH using the RPM command, you must run the service script (see Configure and Start the Instance), which configures the instance.
