The following steps worked for me in my test server.
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://CENTOS:5450/webui
Accept the License
In configuration screen specify
Pw: <current pw>
Unix group ID = verticadba
Default for everything else
In Configure Authentication
We can use MC for authentication. This is only for MC 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.
