Where's the /opt/vertica/sbin directory for 6.1 install?

Post by Julie » Wed Dec 12, 2012 3:35 pm

Hi all,

I'm trying to install Vertica 6.1. I do this:

Code: Select all

[root@verticatest01 vertica6.1.0]# rpm -ivh vertica-client-6.1.0-0.x86_64.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:vertica-client         ########################################### [100%]

Vertica Analytic Database Clients V6.1.0-0 successfully installed on host verticatest01

To download the latest Vertica documentation in zip or tar format:
http://www.vertica.com/v-zone/product_documentation
And then try to run the /opt/vertica/sbin/install_vertica command but there seems to be an issue.

The issue is pretty serious... In fact, there isn't a /opt/vertica/sbin directory!!!

Code: Select all

[root@verticatest01 vertica6.1.0]# ls /opt/vertica/sbin
ls: /opt/vertica/sbin: No such file or directory
Did I do something wrong or is this a known issue?

Weird!
Thanks,
Juliette

Hi Julie!

If you have/downloaded client only (vertica-client-6.1.0-0.x86_64.rpm) why you are trying to install server too?

Um... Because I am an idiot :oops:

I meant to install this RPM: vertica-6.1.0-0.x86_64.RHEL5.

Gosh, sorry to waste your time.
Thanks,
Juliette

This looks a little better:

Code: Select all

[root@verticatst01 vertica6.1.0]# rpm -Uvh vertica-6.1.0-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:vertica                ########################################### [100%]

Don't be too embarrassed, Julie! I did that too on one of our test servers :lol: I thought there certainly had to be a bug, heh heh.
