When installing R and associated packages on the Aster cluster, they are installed in a "sandbox" area on each node in the cluster.

To install R and its packages, users must first create this sandbox on the queen node, and then temporarily install a copy of the operating system with the same version as that is running on the queen node.

After completing the R installation on the queen node, use Aster Database commands to synchronize the R installation across all nodes in the cluster.

The operating system ISO images, RPM files or both can then be deleted from the sandbox.

The version of R installed on the Aster cluster and on the client must be the same in order to ensure proper operation of the Aster R package software.
The procedures in this section use ncli commands. Refer to the Teradata Aster® Database User Guide for Aster Appliances and the Teradata Aster® Database User Guide for Commodity Hardware for detailed information on ncli commands.
