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 

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.

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 file.
List the content of the file. cat
# Database password
# Comment out with # to provide password interactively


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 file)

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

Please take a look at this section of the Performance Management guide:
