When using an INI configuration, installation and updates will still be done using the tpm command. Instead of providing configuration information on the command line, the tpm command will look for an INI file in three files:
An alternative directory
can be searched using
--ini option to
tpm. This option can also be used to specify a
specific ini file if you choose to name the file something different, for example
The INI file(s) must be readable by the tungsten system user.
Here is an example of a
tungsten.ini file that would
setup a simple dataservice.
[alpha] master=host1 members=host1,host2,host3 connectors=host1,host2,host3
[defaults] application-user=app_user application-password=secret application-port=3306 replication-user=tungsten replication-password=secret replication-port=13306 start-and-report=true user=tungsten
The property names in the INI file are the same as what is used on the
command line. Simply remove the leading
-- characters and add it to the
proper section. Each section in the INI file replaces a single
tpm configure call. The section name inside of the
square brackets is used as the service name. In the case of the
[defaults] section, this will act
like the tpm configure defaults command.
Include any host-specific options in the appropriate section. This configuration will only apply to the local server, so there is no need to put host-specific settings in a different section.
