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.
- From the navigation pane, click Protect > Big Data.
The Instances page appears.
- Click Add server > Cassandra.
The Add Cassandra server dialog box appears.
- In the Name box, type a name for the new instance you are creating.
- From the Gateway node list, select a Cassandra node to which the software would connect to.
- In the Cassandra configuration file path box, type the path to the Cassandra configuration file.
- In the Gateway java path box, type the path to the gateway node java installation.
- In the CQL host box, type the IP address of the CQL connection node.
- From the Plan list, select a server plan.
- 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.
- In the CQL port box, type the port number used for CQL connections.
- In the JMX port box, type the port number used for JMX connections.
- Click Save.
The software creates an instance.
