To create and control Director, cleanser, and matcher servers, you must first identify Director host machines. On subsequent startups, the Director System Manager reads the host list, stored in the hostandport.ini file in:

C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Data Quality\17\deployment

It searches the network to locate those hosts, and populates the Director System Manager main window with current information on server activity.

To start or modify Directors or servers, you must have the necessary privileges on the appropriate hosts. For Windows hosts, security is controlled by your Windows system administrator and your access rights for running, creating and modifying services. For Linux hosts, you must have either a home directory or a Trillium user account on the host system.

Linux systems must have SSH (Secure Shell) installed. The Director System Manager uses SSH security technology to provide a secure connection to run and modify the privileged Director services.

To identify hosts

  1. Open the Director System Manager (Start>All Programs>Trillium Software>TSS 17>Director System Manager(64-bit)) . If the Director System Manager is located on the same machine as the Control Center, you can open it by clicking the Control Center's Advanced tab and selecting Tools>Director System Manager.
  2. If hosts have not yet been set up, the Setup window automatically opens. If hosts have been previously set up, select File>Setup Hosts and Security to open the Setup window. The Host/Port List on the Hosts tab identifies all Director hosts that are currently being managed by this Director System Manager. The Services Found list identifies all Directors and servers that are currently running on all managed hosts.
  3. To add a host to the list, on the Hosts tab:
    1. Enter the machine name or IP address of a host on which the Trillium Director has been installed.
    2. Enter the port on which the Director listens. If you are unsure of the port, check the TRILLDIRPORT environment variable on the host machine.
    3. Click Add. The host is added to the Host/Port List in the left pane of the window. Click Search/Refresh to list all Directors and servers currently running on that host. Servers that are not running are not listed.
    Note: If you run network security scans, the ports used by the Director, Matcher and Cleanser servers must be removed from the security scans. Failure to do so may cause their processes to be terminated.
  4. To remove a host, select the host in the left pane and click Remove. The servers associated with that host will be automatically removed from the right pane. Note that the Remove button does not delete services on the host, it simply removes them from the hostandport.ini file.
  5. When you have finished adding or removing hosts, click OK, or, if you are setting up a Linux host, click the Security tab.

Once hosts are configured, the Director System Manager displays statistics about the Director, cleanser, and matcher servers running on those host/port combinations. If a Director has not yet been created on this host/port combination, the Director System Manager displays a warning icon indicating that the Director was not found.

Note that the connection between hosts and the Director System Manager is subject to network related issues such as pauses and delays, unresponsive remote services, network traffic, power loss, or manual termination of a dependent process. If there is a network issue for a specific host and port, a warning icon displays next to the node in the left pane of the Director System Manager. Right click the warning icon to view the associated error.

Note: On Windows systems hosting Director components or clients, to improve processing speed set the following TCP/IP parameters:
TCPTimedWaitDelay REG_DWORD 30 seconds
MaxUserPort REG_DWORD 65534
