Striim 3.10.3 documentation

Alternative installation method

Before following these instructions, see Configuring your system to evaluate Striim and Running the CDC demo apps.

If you are evaluating Striim on Windows 8.1 (which does not support Docker Desktop, required to run the CDC demo apps), or have trouble with the Striim_3.10.2.jar installer, you may install as follows.

  1. Download

  2. Extract the .zip file to a location of your choice. Adjust all the paths in the following instructions accordingly.


    Known issue (DEV-22317): do not put the striim directory under a directory with a space in its name, such as C:\Program Files.

  3. Open a terminal or command prompt and change to the striim directory.

    • In CentOS or Ubuntu, enter sudo su - striim bin/

    • In OS X, enter bin/

    • In Windows, enter bin\sksConfig

    When prompted, enter passwords for the Striim keystore and the admin and sys users. Choose Derby as the MDR (metadata repository).

  4. Open Striim/conf/ in a text editor, edit the following properties (removing any # characters and spaces from the beginning of the lines), and save the file:

    • WAClusterName: a name for the Striim cluster (note that if an existing Striim cluster on the network has this name, Striim will try to join it)

    • CompanyName: If you specify keys, this must exactly match the associated company name. If you are using a trial license, any name will work.

    • ProductKey and LIcenseKey: If you have keys, specify them, otherwise leave blank to run Striim on a trial license. Note that you¬†cannot create a multi-server cluster using a trial license.

    • Interfaces: If the system has more than one IP address, specify the one you want Striim to use, otherwise leave blank and Striim will set this automatically.

  5. Open a command prompt and run striim/bin/ or striim\bin\server.bat.

    Wait for output similar to the following before going on to the next step:

    Please go to or to administer, or use console
  6. If your operating system supports Docker Desktop, you may follow the instructions in "Installing the CDC demo apps in an existing Striim server" in Running the CDC demo apps).Running the CDC demo apps

  7. Open a web browser, go to http:/localhost:9080, and log in with username admin and the password you provided in step 3.

Continue with Viewing dashboards.


To stop Striim, press Ctrl-C in the command prompt. To restart, repeat step 5.
