Issue/Introduction

I am trying to install CA Performance Management 3.5, but I'm having issues understanding the installation for the Data Aggregator.

I'm unable to understand the correct procedure of what Usernames to use.

===============================================================================
Data Repository Information (4/4) - Data Repository Admin Username
------------------------------------------------------------------

Data repository admin username is the database administration user account 
which was used to install the data repository. 

Data repository admin username (DEFAULT: ): dradmin




===============================================================================
Data Repository Information (4/4) - Data Repository Admin User Password
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Data repository admin user password is the password specified while creating 
the database after the data repository installation.

Please enter the data repository admin user password: 



===============================================================================
Pre-requisite Checking
----------------------

Failed to pass the pre-requisite checking for the Vertica database. Verify 
that:

1) You have the correct parameters for connecting to the database

2) The Vertica database is running

3) In the case when the database schema is out of synchronization, disconnect 
all clients from the database and
choose "Yes" during installation to recreate the schema.

4) The Data Repository is running the correct version of Vertica.

Error code: 1
Description: unable to execute test to verify db connection; cause: 
[Vertica][VJDBC](3781) FATAL: Invalid username or password


  ->1- Exit
    2- Retry Connection
    3- Re-enter Data

Environment

Release : 3.5

Component : IM Data Aggregator

Resolution

In the following phase of the DA installation, you have to supply the database password, not the Data Repository admin password.

You can find the database password on the DR (Data Repository) machine.
Go to the /opt/CA/IMDataRepository_vertica9/ directory.
Locate the drinstall.properties file.
List the content of the drinstall.properties file. cat drinstall.properties
# Database password
# Comment out with # to provide password interactively
DbPwd=dbpass

 

Data repository username : dauser (just an example, supply whatever you want)

Please enter data repository user password: dapass (just an example, supply whatever you want)

Data repository admin username : dradmin (from drinstall.properties file)

Please enter the data repository admin user password: dbpass (from drinstall.properties file)
