Installing EDB Pgpool-II Extensions on RHEL 9 ppc64le v4


Before you begin the installation process:

  • Install Postgres on the same host. See:

  • Set up the EDB repository.

    Setting up the repository is a one-time task. If you have already set up your repository, you don't need to perform this step.

    To determine if your repository exists, enter this command:

    dnf repolist | grep enterprisedb

    If no output is generated, the repository isn't installed.

    To set up the EDB repository:

    1. Go to EDB repositories.

    2. Select the button that provides access to the EDB repository.

    3. Select the platform and software that you want to download.

    4. Follow the instructions for setting up the EDB repository.

  • Install the EPEL repository:

    sudo dnf -y install
  • Refresh the cache:

    sudo dnf makecache

Install the package

sudo dnf -y install edb-as<xx>-pgpool<yy>-extensions

Where <xx> is the EDB Postgres Advanced Server version and <yy> is the EDB Pgpool-II version you are installing. For example, if you are installing EDB Pgpool-II version 4.4 and EDB Postgres Advanced Server version 15, the package name would be edb-as15-pgpool44-extensions.
