Installing Management Console

You can install Management Console on any node you plan to include in the Vertica database cluster, as well as on its own, dedicated server outside the cluster.

Install Management Console on the MC Server

  1. Download the MC package from the myVertica portal:
    vertica-console-current-version.Linux-distro) 

    Save the package to a location on the target server, such as /tmp.

  2. On the target server, log in as root or a user with sudo privileges.
  3. Change to the directory where you saved the MC package.
  4. Install MC using your local Linux distribution package management system—rpm, yum, zypper, apt, dpkg. For example:

    Red Hat 6

    # rpm -Uvh vertica-console-current-version.x86_64.RHEL6.rpm 

    Debian and Ubuntu

    # dpkg -i vertica-console-current-version.deb
  5. If you stopped the database before upgrading MC, restart the database.

    As the root user, use the following command:

    /etc/init.d/verticad start

    For versions of Red Hat 7/CentOS 7 and above, run:

    # systemctl start vertica-consoled
  6. Open a browser and enter the URL of the MC installation, one of the following:

    • IP address:
      https://ip-address:mc-port/
    • Server host name:
      https://hostname:mc-port/					

    By default, mc-port is 5450.

  7. If MC was not previously configured, the Configuration Wizard dialog box appears. Configuration steps are described in Configuring MC.

    If MC was previously configured, Vertica prompts you to accept the end-user license agreement (EULA) when you first log in to MC after the upgrade.

    Additionally, you can choose to provide Vertica with analytic information about your MC usage. For details, see Managing MC Settings.
