Building an Infor Grid Lab – Part 4

Continuing to learn Infor ION Grid and building a laboratory without LifeCycle Manager (LCM), today I will use the Grid bundled installer and spew screenshots of the intuitive and automated install.

Disclaimer

The Grid bundled installer is available publicly as part of the Grid deliverable, but it is for internal use only, not for production use.

1. Database

Install a database server (DB2 AS/400, Apache Derby, Oracle, PostgreSQL, or SQL Server), and create a new database, e.g. InforIONGrid:

2. JAR file

Go to the Infor Product Download Center, find the M3 Core Infrastructure and Technology, download the Grid installer, unzip it, go to the components sub-folder, and execute the installer JAR file:

3. Next Next Next

Follow the wizard:

3. Result

Here is the resulting Grid, files and folders, web UI, admin UI, topology, registry, default router, administrative router, user and role mapping, Grid Bootstrap, database, Windows Service, processes, topology XML, and runtime XML:

Future work

Next, I may:

  • Installing a Grid silently with izpack XML
  • Generate secure\server.key with OpenSSL
  • Setup an Administrative Router
  • Setup a Grid Agent
  • Setup a Grid Launcher
  • Setup a Grid Bootstrap
  • Install session providers
  • Install applications
  • Install GDBC
  • Install the Grid on Linux and PostgreSQL

Conclusion

That was an illustration of the Infor ION Grid bundled installer which is internal only and intuitive.

  1. NOTE: I learned some more about the Grid, I think the following is true, not sure:
    * The Configuration Manager has two parts: a client part, the Configuration Manager Client (UI), and a server part, the Administrative Router; the Configuration Manager manipulates the runtime.xml.
    * A Grid Agent is used to start nodes programmatically; there is one Grid Agent per host. Nodes are JVMs; the Node types are: registry, router, application.
    * The Windows Service Infor ION Grid Bootstrap uses the Grid Launcher and Grid Agent to launch everything in the Grid at startup: registry, routers, applications, etc.
    To be continued…
