Step 10: Foglight repository database type

Step 10: Foglight repository database type

This step allows you to select the Foglight database type. The server on which the database is located must be running before you complete this step.At the completion of this step, the installer creates the user (foglight is the default user ID) in the database and sets the appropriate permissions.

Select MySQL (External database) and then click Next. See the following section for instructions.

If you install and configure a MySQL® database instance as an external database and this instance is to run on a different machine than the one hosting the server, select the MySQL option to make the database accessible remotely.

If the Management Server you are installing is configured to be part of an HA cluster, you must also configure it to connect to the same database instance as all other members of the cluster. This typically means that you set Host, Port, and Database Name to the same values as those used for the other members. In some rare cases, certain settings might be different. For example, the value for Host might be different if there is a firewall between the database and certain members of the cluster in your environment.

1
In the Host box, type the database host name or IP address (the default is localhost).
2
In the Port field, type a port number or accept the default (3306). This is the TCP/IP port on which the database communicates with the Management Server. The external database needs to be configured to communicate on this port.
3
In the Database Name field, type the name of the database (the default is foglight).
4
In the Foglight Repository User Name box, accept the default user name or type an alternate one. The Management Server uses this account to connect to the database.
5
In the Foglight Repository User Account Password box, accept the default password or type an alternate one. The Management Server uses this password to connect to the database.
6
In the Foglight Repository User Account Retype Password box, accept the default or, if you have provided an alternate password in step 5, re-type the password for verification.
7
Select one of the following Repository Creation options:
8
If you select Manually create the repository database, there are two methods you can use to create the database. For more information, see Manual database configuration.
9
If you select Automatically create the repository database, select the Repository Administrator Account Authentication Method, and then type the Repository Administrator Account User Name and Password. The Management Server uses the administrator account credentials to create the MySQL® database.
IMPORTANT: If the Management Server you are installing is configured to be part of an HA cluster, you must set the Repository Administrator Account User Name and Password to the same values as those used for the other Management Servers that share the same HA partition name.
10
Click Next.
If you chose Manually create the repository database in step 7, and did not create the database at that time, an error message appears. For more information, see Manual database configuration.

Step 11: Foglight ports configuration

Step 11: Foglight ports configuration
NOTE: In certain configurations, the Management Server uses other ports than the ones that you can set on this screen; for example, when Foglight is running in High Availability (HA) mode. See the Administration and Configuration Help for details.
4
Click Next.
NOTE: If there are any port assignment conflicts, an error message dialog box appears. Click Review Ports, if you want to return to the Foglight Ports Configuration screen to configure the conflicting port(s), or click Ignore and Continue to continue with the installation without resolving the port conflicts. Select one of these options to continue.

Step 12: Add Foglight license file

Step 12: Add Foglight license file
1
Specify the path to the Foglight license file in the License File box, or browse to a license file by clicking the Browse button.
IMPORTANT: See the Administration and Configuration Guide for information about license requirements, managing licenses, and the different categories of cartridges (based on their license requirements).

Click Next.
