After launching the AMI, obtain the public IP and connect to the shell using your preferred Terminal application, eg
ssh -i your-key.pem ec2-user@publicIP
Upon connecting, you will see a welcome message, from here you can now connect as the tungsten user
sudo su - tungsten
The launch wizard will start automatically and start prompting you for details regarding your source and/or target database.
If you are launching two (2) AMI's, one as an extractor and one as the applier, then configure the extractor first, as you will need to provide details of the extractor when you configure the applier
Once you have provided all the information to the wizard, you will be prompted on screen for the next steps.
In summary, the wizard will have completed the following:
tungsten.ini within /etc/tungsten
Created additional directories for software installation
Created additional configuration files depening upon target requirements
Created a log file of the Wizard execution within /home/tungsten/ami-launch/log
The latest version of Tungsten Replicator will be unpacked within /opt/continuent/software
The wizard does not install the software, this allows you to fine tune the configuration to suit your needs, such as adding additional filters, or adjusting memory and buffer allocations.
For more information on all the possible configuration parameters, see Section 9.8, “tpm Configuration Options”
You can now install the software, follow the on screen instructions displayed after Wizard completetion to install using tpm, or review Section 9.4.2, “Installation with INI File”
