Install 3 Node Vertica Cluster in VMWARE

Post by vigneshn » Wed Sep 09, 2015 12:16 pm

Hi All,

Till today, I was trying vertica using single node in my laptop. I would like to install 3 nodes using VMWARE. Any procedures document will be really helpful. I tried cloning single node but I am not sure how to configure hosts. I am newbie to VMWARE. Help is really appreciated.

Thanks,
Vignesh N.

Dump VMware and use Oracle VirtualBox (https://www.virtualbox.org/)!

You can find easy setup instructions by Norbert Krupa here:

But if you insist on VMware :P, how did you create the single VMWare VM? Did you use a Virtual Machine vmdk file provided by Vertica?

Hi Kincely,

For 1 Node Cluster,

I was using the vmdk file from vertica as well as I have installed it in virtual box.

When it comes to 3 node,

I did not know to create a link between the cloned machine. the link helped me a lot and it is a great article.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks,
Vignesh N.
