You can now add servers to a cluster using a file and support more end users.

  1. On the active cache database, copy
    /opt/teradata/viewpoint/dcs/config/non.interactive.cluster.properties
    to
    /etc/opt/teradata/viewpoint/non.interactive.cluster.properties
  2. Change owner.
    chown viewpoint:viewpoint /etc/opt/teradata/viewpoint/non.interactive.cluster.properties
  3. Edit the file and provide the following:
    Property Description
    active.database.host Active Viewpoint IP/hostname
    active.database.user User to connect to active viewpoint. For example: root
    standby.database.host Standby Viewpoint IP/hostname
    standby.database.user User to connect to standby viewpoint. For example: root
    standby.database.password ssh password to connect with standby.database.user
    • standby.database.password can be left blank and instead be set as an environment variable.

      export STANDBYDBPWD=<password>

    • To unset,

      unset STANDBYDBPWD

    keyfile.path If keyfile based communication is supported, provide path
    email.addresses Set email address of alert recipients as comma-separated. For example: abc@teradata.com, def@teradata.com
    disable.cluster Set to:
    • false - to enable cluster
    • true - to disable cluster
  4. Run the following command on the server that is currently hosting the active cache database:
    /opt/teradata/viewpoint/bin/clustersetup.sh
