Modify the Virtual DataPort Metadata

Before importing the VQL file export_from_denodo_60.vql into the new Denodo server, you may need to modify it.

  1. Open the VQL file.

  2. Search for the following lines and delete them (you may have all these properties defined):

    SET 'com.denodo.vdb.interpreter.execution.processor.VDBActionProcessor.enableAutoSingleUserMode'
    
    SET 'com.denodo.vdb.vdbinterface.server.vcs.VCSConfigurationManager.localRepositoriesHome'
    
    SET 'com.denodo.vdb.interpreter.execution.processor.VDBActionProcessor.strictAutoSingleUserMode'
    
    SET 'com.denodo.vdb.catalog.exportMigrationCompatibility'
    
    SET 'com.denodo.vdb.catalog.exportMigrationCompatibility.migrateDateTypes'
    
    SET 'com.denodo.vdb.security.allowLDAPAdministratorsToAssignPrivileges'
    
    SET 'com.denodo.vdb.cache.i18nCode'
    
    SET 'com.denodo.security.ssl.enabled'
    
The property “com.denodo.security.ssl.enabled” controls if SSL is enabled on the Virtual DataPort server. We remove this property to avoid enabling SSL until the migration process is completed.

If you are using the cache engine of Denodo, also do the following:

  1. Search DATASOURCE JDBC vdpcachedatasource and modify the value of the parameter DATABASEURI to point to the new schema of the cache database. This is the schema you created when following the steps of the section Before Beginning the Migration.

    Check if this statement has the parameters TARGET_CATALOG or TARGET_SCHEMA and if it does, update their value with the name of the new catalog or schema.

    If the password for this catalog/schema is different, you can obtain the encrypted password with the statement ENCRYPT_PASSWORD (execute it from the VQL Shell). For example,

    ENCRYPT_PASSWORD 'new password' FOR_PROPERTIES_FILE;
    
  2. Search DATASOURCE JDBC customvdpcachedatasource.

    Do the same changes as in the step above. Take into account that:

    • There may be more than one CREATE DATASOURCE JDBC customvdpcachedatasource statement and you have to modify the DATABASEURI in all of them.
    • If you do not find this statement, it means that all the databases use the global configuration of the cache.
    • You may find this statement, but without the parameter DATABASEURI. In this case, ignore this statement and continue searching.
  3. Search for the line that starts with:

    SET 'java.env.DENODO_OPTS_START' = '
    

    In this line, remove -XX:MaxPermSize=<value>. This parameter is not supported by Java 8, the version of Java distributed with Denodo.

If upgrading from Denodo 5.5 or 5.0

  • Open the file export_from_denodo_60.vql generated in the previous section and search 'formatted' = 'yes'.

    For each occurrence of this parameter inside the CONTEXT clause of a CREATE VIEW statement, check that the syntax of the statement is valid in Denodo 7.0. The reason is that starting with Denodo 6.0, the syntax of a few operators changed slightly. The section Changes in VQL Syntax lists the changes in the VQL syntax.
