Creating Cassandra Instances

Add or modify a Cassandra instance when you need to manage data.

When you add an instance, a default subclient is automatically created.

Before You Begin

  • Obtain the Cassandra configuration file path and gateway Java path.
  • Obtain the gateway node and CQL host node.
  • Verify that CQL authentication, JMX authentication, and SSL authentication are enabled on the cluster.
  • Obtain the login credentials to authenticate CQL, JMX, and SSL.
  • Optional: If you want to use a specific account when you perform backup and restore operations, have the user name and the password.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, click Solutions > Big Data.

    The Instances page appears.

  2. Click Add server > Cassandra.

    The Add Cassandra server dialog box appears.

  3. In the Name box, type a name for the new instance you are creating.
  4. From the Gateway node list, select a Cassandra node to which the software would connect to.
  5. In the Cassandra configuration file path box, type the path to the Cassandra configuration file.
  6. In the Gateway java path box, type the path to the gateway node java installation.
  7. In the CQL host box, type the IP address of the CQL connection node.
  8. From the Plan list, select a server plan.
  9. Click Authentication settings, and then enable CQL authentication, JMX authentication, and SSL authentication by providing their respective user names and passwords.

    Note: You can enable these authentications only if they are enabled on the cluster.

  10. In the CQL port box, type the port number used for CQL connections.
  11. In the JMX port box, type the port number used for JMX connections.
  12. Click Save.

Result

The software creates an instance.
