Alternatively, you can configure CMICs interactively.
To complete this procedure in batch mode, you must have the Server Management administrative and Server Management REST passwords. If you do not have these passwords, configure the CMICs interactively.

When configuring CMICs in batch mode, you must provide information in JSON, which requires data to be entered in an exact format. If you experience problems, verify the format is correct.

  1. From the Azure portal, note IP information as follows:
    • For the CMIC VM, the public IP address
    • For multi-node or single-node systems, the private IP address of each database node
    • For the Teradata Viewpoint VM and other managed VMs, such as Teradata Data Mover, the private IP address of each VM
  2. Log on to the VM using the authentication type you chose when deploying the VM.
  3. Create a JSON config file based on the current CMIC configuration.
    # sudo /opt/teradata/cmic/bin/cmic-cloud-config -d /tmp/cmic.cfg
  4. Using a text editor, make your changes to the config file, and save it.
    The cmic.cfg file is in the following format:
    {
      "cmic-metadata-version" : "2.0",
      "cmic-ip-list": "aa.aa.aa.aa bb.bb.bb.bb",
      "dbs-ip-list" : "[zzz.zz.zz.zzz zzz.zz.zz.yyy]",
      "managed-ip-list" : "xxx.xx.xx.yy yyy.yy.yy.yyy",
      "viewpoint-ip" : "xxx.xx.xx.xxx",
      "sm-admin-password" : "",
      "sm-rest-password" : "",  
      "siteid": "AZRTDBnnnnnnnnn", 
    }
    
    where:
    • sm-admin-password is the Server Management administrative password.
    • sm-rest-password is the Server Management REST password.
    • viewpoint-ip is the private IP address of the Viewpoint VM.
    • siteid [Enterprise, Advanced, and Base tiers only] is the site ID to be used when connecting to Teradata for support.
    • managed-ip-list is the list of private IP addresses of all the managed VMs, such as Teradata Data Mover, separated by a space.
    • dbs-ip-list is the space-separated list of IP address values as follows:
      • For multi-node VMs, the private IP address of each database node, enclosed in brackets.
      • For single-node VMs, the private IP address of the database node, without brackets.
  5. Update the CMIC configuration with the values in the file, which finishes the updates to the CMIC configuration.
    # sudo /opt/teradata/cmic/bin/cmic-cloud-config -f /tmp/cmic.cfg
    After completing this procedure, you can configure the Server Management portlet on the Viewpoint server. See Teradata® Viewpoint User Guide.
