Connecting to the Hub

You will start with a fresh environment with only the software installed, databases created, and encryption certificates available.

1. To connect to the hub and create a repository, use the context menu (pop-up box). The context menu should already be showing on your screen upon login.

2. In the list, Class, select PostgreSQL/Aurora.

This selection will allow the database connection to show the connect information for a PostgreSQL database.

3. On this system, the environment settings resolve automatically and the setup uses local trusted authentication with OS users into PostgreSQL.

4. In the Database section, enter hvrhub.

5. Click Connect.

6. A popup indicates that the repository tables have to be created. Click OK to proceed.

Note that the HVR GUI can be used to control multiple hubs, for example, a hub for development, QA and a production hub. Also, you may create different hubs for different divisions, all of which can be controlled from a single GUI.

At the top level in the tree the hub shows three nodes:

  1. Location Configuration, defining the connection details to the systems you want to replicate data between.
  2. Channel Definitions, for individual data flows going from one or more sources to one or more targets.
  3. Scheduler, representing the job scheduler that ensures data replication jobs are running as well as Compare, Repair and Refresh tasks as needed.

When first defining a new hub, the scheduler is not running. It can be started through the GUI and HVR also provides documentation on how to make the scheduler startup part of the system startup sequence, so that in a production environment, replication resumes automatically following a system restart.

You will start the scheduler later in this trial.
