9.3. tpm Staging Configuration

Before installing your hosts, you must provide the desired configuration. This will be done with one or more calls to tpm configure as seen in the Chapter 2, Deployment. These calls place the given parameters into a staging configuration file that will be used during installation. This is done for dataservices, composite dataservices and replication services.

Instead of a subcommand, tpm configure accepts a service name or the word defaults as a subcommand. This identifies what you are configuring.

When configuring defaults, the defaults affect all configured services, with individual services able to override or set their own parameters.

shell> tpm configure [service_name|defaults] [tpm options] [service configuration options]

In addition to the Section 9.8, “tpm Configuration Options”, the common options in Table 9.4, “tpm Common Options” may be given.

The tpm command will store the staging configuration in the staging directory that you run it from. This behavior is changed if you have $CONTINUENT_PROFILES or $REPLICATOR_PROFILES defined in the environment. If present, tpm will store the staging configuration in that directory. Doing this will allow you to upgrade to a new version of the software without having to run the tpm fetch command.

If you are running Continuent Tungsten, the tpm command will only use $CONTINUENT_PROFILES.

If you are running Tungsten Replicator, the tpm command will use $REPLICATOR_PROFILES if it is available, before using $CONTINUENT_PROFILES.
