To deploy a real-time project, you must specify the hosts on which the project can be deployed. If your Trillium tables or Trillium™ Global Address Verification (GAV) tables are stored on a remote host, you must also set up that host.

For Linux hosts, you must establish a connection to the hosts.

Once a host has been configured, it will be listed in the Pre-configured Hosts list near the top of the window and can be selected in future sessions.

To set up hosts

  1. Click Setup Hosts and Security, located near the bottom of the Project Deployment Manager window. The Setup window opens, as shown in the figure below.

    Figure 1. Setup Window Setup Window
  2. Enter the name or IP address of a machine on which the project will be run or on which your tables are stored. To run a project, the host machine must have Trillium Quality installed.

    Note: If you are setting up a remote Windows host, ensure that your User ID is in that machine’s administrator group, that the remote machine is on the same network as your machine, and that the Remote Registry service is running. If this is not the case, you can manually deploy, as described in Deploying Manually.
  3. Optionally, enter the port number on which the host machine accepts Director requests. The port is not used during the deployment process, but entering a port is useful for checking to see that Director services are running on that host/port combination. If no port is specified, the default is zero. If you are setting up a host in order to access your tables, accept the default port.
    Warning: 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. Click Add. The host is added to the list of deployment hosts in the left pane of the window. If you entered a port, any Director, cleanser, or matcher services running on that host will be added to the list of services in the right pane.

  5. Add additional hosts if desired.

  6. 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.

  7. When you have finished adding or removing hosts, click OK, or, if you are setting up a Linux host, proceed to Step 8.

  8. If you are setting up a Linux host, you must log into the host using the Security tab of the Setup window. To set up a Linux host:

    1. Click the Security tab of the Setup window.

    2. Select the connection type, either SSH (Secure Shell), which is the default, or Telnet.

      Note: If you are connecting using SSH and SSH has not been set up on your user account, refer to Setting up SSH for more information.
    3. Enter the host name or IP address.

    4. Enter a user name (login ID) for this host.

    5. Enter and confirm your password (for a Telnet connection) or your passphrase (for an SSH connection). The default passphrase is madmin.

    6. For an SSH connection, enter the Private Key file you created when you built your SSH key. (Refer to Setting up SSH for information on setting up SSH.) The default Private Key files that you can use for testing are in the following directories:

      • Windows Server

        C:\Program Files\Trillium Software\EDQ\17\tsq\default_keys

      • Client

        C:\Program Files\Common Files\Trillium Software\17\default_keys 

    7. Enter a port to be used for the connection, or select Default to use the default port, which is port 22.

    8. Click Add. A network search runs to find the specified host and the host is added to the host list.

    9. Click Verify Host Connection.

    10. To add another host, click New and repeat the previous steps.

    11. When all connections are set up and tested, click OK.

When the Project Deployment Manager window opens, notice that the hosts have been added to the list in the top pane.
