Using the Graphical Installation Wizard

This section explains how to use the graphical installer of the Denodo Platform.

To install the Denodo Platform in a host without graphical environment, jump to the next section (Using the Command Line Installer).

To do an unattended installation, see the section Unattended Installation of the Denodo Platform.


After downloading the installer, decompress it and launch it by doing the following:

On Windows, go the directory denodo-install-7.0, right-click install.exe and click Run as administrator. If the Windows User Account Control is enabled, you will see a dialog like the following, in which you have the enter credentials of an administrator user.

On Linux, execute the following:

cd denodo-install-7.0
chmod +x install.sh
./install.sh

The wizard will guide you through the installation steps. In addition, you can always click the Help button of the wizard to obtain assistance during the installation process.

Click Next to jump to Step 1.


Step 1

The wizard will display the product licensing conditions. Read them carefully and if you accept them, select I accept the terms of this license and click Next.


Step 2

Select an installation mode:

  1. Default Installation: recommended for most users. You can select the modules you want to install and they will be installed with their default configuration values.

    With the default installation, the Denodo servers will listen for incoming connections on the default ports. See the list ports in the appendix Default Ports Used by the Denodo Platform Modules.

  2. Custom Installation: recommended for advanced users. You will be able to set the values of several configuration parameters such as the ports where the Denodo Platform servers will listen for incoming connections.

Step 2: selecting the installation method

Step 2: selecting the installation method

Enter the Installation path where the Denodo Platform will be installed (hereinafter <DENODO_HOME>).

  • The installation path must not contain spaces (e.g. C:\Denodo\Denodo_Platform_7_0). Otherwise, the connection to some parallel processing databases will not work.

    The Denodo Platform writes data in the directory where is installed so the user that launches the Denodo servers needs to be able to write files there.

  • If installing on Windows, the installation path cannot include “junctions” (Junction Points - Microsoft Developer Network).

Note

If you are installing Denodo Express, in the field License file location enter the path to the license file (denodo-express-lic-XXXX.lic) you downloaded from the site.

If you are doing a standard installation, leave this field empty. The license file you have has to be installed in the Solution Manager, not here.


Step 3

Select the modules and components you want to install.

Step 3: selecting the modules to install

Step 3: selecting the modules to install

If you selected the custom installation, you will have to configure each module. The following sections explain how to configure each module of the Denodo Platform - Commons Settings - Components and Configuration of ITPilot - Installation settings of Scheduler


Step 4

Enter the host name where you installed the Denodo License Manager. If you have not installed the License Manager yet, leave the field empty. You will have to change it later from the Denodo Platform Control Center.

Note

In License Manager host you cannot enter localhost. You have to enter the actual host name of the machine where the License Manager is installed. If it does not have a host name, enter the IP address.

Step 4: configuring the License Manager

Before the installer begins copying the necessary files (this process may take several minutes), the installer will display a summary of the installation configuration. To save this summary, click Save.

Finally, the installation process can create shortcuts in the menus of the operating system to launch the Denodo Platform Control Center (see section Execution).
