Step F: Install the AWS Elemental Delta Software - AWS Elemental Delta

This is version 2.3 of the AWS Elemental Delta documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Delta Documentation.

Step F: Install the AWS Elemental Delta Software

To install the software perform these steps on each Delta hardware unit.

  1. From a Linux prompt, log in with the elemental user credentials.

  2. Run the installer as follows:

    [elemental@hostname ~]$ sudo sh ./elemental_production_delta_2.0.0.nnnnn.run –l –z –tz --restore-db-backup <path to database backup>

    where:

    • -l is a letter, not a number.

    • --restore-db <path>: Installs the backup file that you identified earlier. Specify just the filename in this format elemental-db-backup_yyyy-mm-dd_hh-mm-ss.tar.bz2

      The path for this file is /home/elemental on the hardware unit (you copied the file to this location in Step C: Copy Files Currently on the Delta Hardware Unit).

      The installer looks for the database file you specified and checks that it is a compatible version. If the file is not found or is not compatible, the installation fails.

  3. You are prompted to answer the prompts shown in the following table.
