The monitoring service uses SSH connections to the servers it monitors and JDBC to monitor the Data Mover repositories. The command may take a few minutes to complete and does the following:
  • Sets up the SSH logons for the monitoring services so that the services can log on without a password to the monitored servers.
  • Sets up and stores the usernames and passwords for the active and standby repositories.
  • Configures and starts the local daemon, agents, and local sync service in active mode.
  • Starts the remote sync service in standby mode.
  • Starts the monitoring service on local.monitor.host to monitor the local Data Mover components.
  1. Log on to the active daemon server and edit the /etc/opt/teradata/datamover/failover.properties file for your system.
    For details about the Failover.properties file, see Failover.properties File
  2. Run the following command as root:
    ./dmcluster config
    In a default installation, the active repository host is the same as the active daemon host and the standby repository host is the same as the standby daemon host.
