Note: Connect CDC Listener must be stopped prior to reconfiguration (see Stop Connect CDC Listener).

Prior to installing Connect CDC on a host:

  • Ensure that the file system where Connect CDC is installed has at least 1 Gigabyte of disk space.

  • Database JDBC drivers must be installed on the installing host for non-Windows platforms.

  • Oracle Unicode target column values replicated to the target column can be truncated because the XML length is incorrect. To avoid this issue ensure that you use the following JDBC driver versions for Unix:

  • For Oracle 11g use 11.2.0.4 and above.

  • For Oracle12c, 18c, or 19c use 12.0 and above.

Note the location of the JDBC drivers since they are needed during the install. Connect CDC uses JDBC for connectivity. The user is required to obtain the chosen JDBC driver. See the Connect CDC Release Notes for the current list.

  • J2SE must be installed on both the installer and recipient hosts, for non-Windows platforms. See the Connect CDC Release Notes for the Java version number.

  • The PATH environment variable must be set up non-Windows platforms.

  • The following TCP/IP daemons must be available:

  • For remote installs, the FTP server must be running on the recipient host and an FTP client must be running on the originating host where the installer is run.

  • For remote installs and for installing Connect CDC Listener as a startup script, the rexec daemon must be active on the recipient host.

  • The GUI Installer must have access to the tmp directory since install attempts to detect an existing install of Connect CDC on the installing host by creating a file in a well-known writeable system directory. The directory is the temporary I/O directory provided by the Java system property java.io.tmpdir. The file is either a link to the <host_name>.properties file in the host install directory, or a copy.
