4.4.1 Performing a Text Mode Installation

Table of Contents Previous Next



To specify that the installer should run in text mode, include the -mode text command line option when invoking the installer. Text-mode installations are useful if you need to install on a remote server using ssh tunneling (and have access to a minimal amount of bandwidth), or if you do not have access to a graphical interface.

The installer prompts you to select a Configuration Mode (see Figure 4.44). The configuration mode specifies the server dialect that Advanced Server will be compatible with; you can choose between Compatible with Oracle and Compatible with PostgreSQL installation modes.
Installing Advanced Server in Compatible with Oracle mode provides the following functionality:
Oracle-styled concatenation rules (if you concatenate a string value with a NULL value, the returned value is the value of the string).
Schemas (dbo and sys) compatible with Oracle databases added to the SEARCH_PATH.
This is not a comprehensive list of the compatibility features for Oracle included when Advanced Server is installed in Compatible with Oracle mode; more information about Advanced Server is available in the Database Compatibility for Oracle Developer’s Guide, available at:
If you choose to install in Compatible with Oracle mode, the Advanced Server superuser name is enterprisedb.
When installed in Compatible with PostgreSQL mode, Advanced Server exhibits complete compatibility with Postgres version 9.5. For more information about Postgres functionality, see the PostgreSQL core documentation, available at:
If you choose to install in Compatible with PostgreSQL mode, the Advanced Server superuser name is postgres.
Press Enter to accept the default configuration mode (Compatible with Oracle) and continue; enter 2 and press Enter to install in Compatible with PostgreSQL mode. The installer prompts you for a database superuser password (see Figure 4.45).

Advanced Server uses the password specified on the Password window for the database superuser and pgAgent service. The specified password must conform to any security policies existing on the Advanced Server host.
After entering a password in the Password field, confirm the password and press Enter to continue. The installer asks for Additional Configuration information (see Figure 4.46).

When prompted, enter the Port that the Advanced Server service will monitor for connections. By default, Advanced Server chooses the first available port after port number 5444.
Specify a Locale by entering a locale number from the list shown. Accept the Default locale value to instruct the installer to use the system locale as the server locale.
When prompted, enter Y (or press Enter to accept the default value) to install the sample tables and procedures for the database dialect specified by the compatibility mode (Oracle or PostgreSQL).
When the 업데이트 Notification Service prompt appears, enter Y to indicate that Advanced Server should notify you of any available updates and security patches for your installation of Advanced Server.
Dynatune functionality allows Advanced Server to make optimal usage of the system resources available on the host machine. To facilitate performance tuning through Dynatune, the installer prompts you for Server Utilization and Workload Profile information (see Figure 4.47).
C:\Users\susan\AppData\Local\Temp\vmware-susan\VMwareDnD\9f9ef8d1\eleven.png
The edb_dynatune configuration parameter determines how Advanced Server allocates system resources. Specify a usage type for the Advanced Server installation to establish the initial value of edb_dynatune.
Specify Development to set the value of edb_dynatune to 33.
Specify General Purpose to set the value of edb_dynatune to 66.
Specify Dedicated to set the value of edb_dynatune to 100.
Enter a value of 1, 2 or 3, or simply accept the default value of 2 (to indicate that the server will be used for General Purpose processing) and press Enter to continue.
The installer uses the Workload Profile to establish the initial value of the edb_dynatune_profile configuration parameter. The edb_dynatune_profile parameter controls performance-tuning aspects based on the type of work that the server performs.
Enter 1 to indicate Transaction Processing (OLTP systems) and set the value of edb_dynatune_profile to oltp.
Enter 2 to indicate General Purpose (OLTP and reporting workloads) and set the value of edb_dynatune_profile to mixed.
Enter 3 to indicate Reporting (Complex queries or OLAP workloads) and set the value of edb_dynatune_profile to reporting.
After choosing a Workload Profile, press Enter to continue.
After the installation is complete, you can adjust the values of edb_dynatune and edb_dynatune_profile by editing the postgresql.conf file and restarting the server.
For more information about edb_dynatune and other performance-related topics, see the EDB Postgres (Postgres Plus) Migration Guide, available at:
When the installer continues, it requests configuration information for the PgBouncer and pgAgent services (see Figure 4.48).
C:\Users\susan\AppData\Local\Temp\vmware-susan\VMwareDnD\9d9cfedf\twelve.png
By default, the file is located in a directory that is accessible only to the cluster owner (by default, enterprisedb), but administrators should take note of the file and maintain permissions in a manner that secures the file from untrusted users.
By default, Advanced Server expects PgBouncer to listen on port 6432; update the Listening Port field, or accept the default, and press Enter to continue.
If enabled, the 업데이트 Notification Service notifies you of any available updates and security patches for your installation of Advanced Server.
By default, the installer specifies that Advanced Server should start the services when the system boots; specify n to disable PgBouncer, pgAgent and the Update Notification Service, or accept the defaults, and press Enter to continue to the Pre Installation Summary (shown in Figure 4.49).
C:\Users\susan\AppData\Local\Temp\vmware-susan\VMwareDnD\d261651f\thirteen.png
The Pre Installation Summary lists the options specified during the installation setup process; review the listing and press Enter to continue; press Enter again to start the installation process. The installer extracts the Advanced Server files and proceeds with the installation (shown in Figure 4.50).
