The host.list file identifies one or more hosts on which to install Connect CDC. It must be located in the current directory where the Installer is running. Below is a sample host.list file:

remote=Nreconfigure=Nvector=UNIXremote=Yreconfigure=Ymountain=UNIX

This example asks the Batch Installer to install on two hosts:

  • A local, initial full install onto the UNIX host named vector

  • A remote, reconfigure install onto the UNIX host named mountain

Keywords and input parameters may be in mixed case. The order of the input parameters is important. Comments are denoted by a # in the first column of a line. Comments are not allowed on the right side of a key=value property specification.

Keyword or Input Parameter

Description

Remote

One of the following:

  • N is the default. N indicates the install will occur locally where the Installer program is running.

  • Y indicates the Installer program will install on a different host than where the installer is running. The originating host is a different host machine than the recipient host.

This remote keyword affects all installing hosts defined later in the host.list file until another remote keyword is specified.

Reconfigure

One of the following:

  • N is the default. N indicates the installer must perform a full install of Connect CDC.

  • Y indicates that hosts have an existing Connect CDC install and should be reconfigured.

This reconfigure keyword affects all hosts defined later in the host.list file until another reconfigure keyword is specified.

host_filename = HOST_TYPE

Defines host (recipient host) on which to install Connect CDC.

  • host_filename–Identifies the properties file containing the install parameters for installing to one host. host_filename plus.properties comprises the properties filename.   

In the example above, there would be two property files names named vector.properties and mountain.properties.

  • HOST_TYPE–The operating system type of the recipient host. The valid operating system type is UNIX. (Use UNIX for Linux.)
