HCL OneDB embeddability deployment tutorial

The purpose of this tutorial is to provide steps and scripts needed for silent end-to-end deployment of HCL OneDB™ on Linux™ and Windows™ using the deployment assistant and the deployment utility.

The HCL OneDB Embeddability Toolkit is a logical collection of the following components:
  • ifxdeployassist: the deployment assistant (DA).
  • ifxdeploy: the deployment utility (DU).
  • ifxdeploy.conf: the DU's configuration file.
  • ifx_silent_deploy: an example script that automates silent deployment using DU. The Linux shell script and the Windows batch script for this silent deployment example are posted separately on the Technote at http://www.HCL.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21446737.
The following tasks are covered in this tutorial for silent deployment of HCL OneDB:
  • Create a Snapshot for Deployment: Using the DA, archive an installed HCL OneDB server instance and its dbspaces on the template computer for future deployments.
  • Silently Deploy HCL OneDB from the Snapshot: Using the DU, its configuration file, and ifx_silent_deploy, silently deploy a copy of the archived HCL OneDB server instance and its dbspaces on a target computer.
