Installing MC (Management Console) for HP Vertica

High level steps:

  • Download vertica-console-7.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm from Vertica portal
    rpm -Uvh vertica-console-7.1.1-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm
    *** Please do NOT close this terminal or SSH session ***
  • When message “StartedSslSelectChannelConnector:<ipaddress>:5450 STARTING” shows up…

    In a browser go to https://<HOSTNAME or IP Address>:5450/webui
    Accept the License
    In configuration screen specify
    Username: dbadmin
    Pw: <current pw>
    Unix group ID = verticadba
    Default for everything else

  • In Configure AuthenticationWe can use MC for authentication. This is applicable only for MC login and NOT database login.
  • SSH session will continue using the parameter we specified to configure MC and restart the MC server.Eventually the web interface will refresh automatically and log in screen will be presented.
  • At this point MC installation is COMPLETE.

Since we already have a database created and started and running, we need import the database into MC.

This needs to be performed as dbadmin (db superuser) from MC webui.
