Hitachi Vantara Lumada and Pentaho Documentation



Introduces DI Manual installation.

You can manually install the Pentaho Data Integration (DI) Server and configure it to run with the database and web application server of your choice. Choose to house the DI Repository on a PostgreSQL, MySQL, or Oracle database. The DI Repository contains solution content, scheduling, and audit tables needed for the DI Server to operate. You can choose to deploy the DI Server on either the JBoss or Tomcat web application servers. Note that with this installation option, you must supply, install, and configure your chosen database and web application server yourself.


Read Select DI Installation Option to make sure that this is the best installation option for you. Also, before you begin, check the Supported Technologies tables to make sure that your server computer, DI Repository database, and web browser meet Pentaho's requirements for the current version of the software.


The topics in this section are written for IT administrators who know where data is stored, how to connect to it, details about the computing environment, and how to use the command line to issue commands for Microsoft Windows or Linux.
