Striim 4.0.4 documentation

Adding a server to a cluster in CentOS

Note

All servers in a cluster must run the same version of Striim. You cannot create a multi-server cluster using a trial license.

The following steps require that you have created the first server in the cluster as described above and that it is running.

  1. Verify that the system meets the System requirements.System requirements

  2. Log in to Linux and download striim-node-4.0.4-Linux.rpm.

  3. Install that package:

    sudo rpm -ivh striim-node-4.0.4-Linux.rpm

  4. Copy sks.jks, sksKey.pwd, and startUp.properties from /opt/striim/conf/ on the first server to /opt/striim/conf/ on the new server.

  5. Assign ownership of the keystore files to Striim:

    sudo chown striim sks.jks
    sudo chown striim sksKey.pwd
  6. Set the MetadataRepository settings to match those of the other servers in the cluster. For more information, see Setting startUp.properties for the metadata repository.

  7. If Interfaces is specified in startUp.properties, change its value to an IP address of the current system. If IsTcpIpCluster=true,add that IP address to the ServerNodeAddress list on each server in the cluster.

  8. If using TCP/IP instead of multicast UDP, see Using TCP/IP instead of multicast UDP.

  9. Reboot the system and verify that Striim has restarted automatically.

    Alternatively:

    • For CentOS 6, enter sudo start striim-node.

    • For CentOS 7, enter:

      sudo systemctl enable striim-node
      sudo systemctl start striim-node

    Then sudo tail -F /opt/striim/logs/striim-node.log and wait for the message  Please go to ... to administer, or use console.

  10. Log in as admin and check the Monitor page to verify that the server has been added to the cluster (see Monitoring using the web UI).

To uninstall:

sudo rpm -e striim-node
