Installation architecture

Select to install on a single machine, a Cluster - first host, or cluster - additional host.

  • Single - Installs a single instance of Transfer CFT on a machine.
  • Cluster - Installs Transfer CFT on several machines. Select this option if you want to install Transfer CFT in multi-host/multi-node or in active/passive mode.
    • Cluster - First host: Install on a first machine before adding additional machines (nodes). You must install on a first node before you can select the option to install on additional nodes.
    • Cluster - Additional host: After installing on the first machine, you can select this option to install on an additional machine(s).
  • If you are performing a cluster installation and you enable the multi-node option in the configuration file, this creates an active/active Transfer CFT installation. Otherwise, the installation is active/passive.
Installation Directory Specify the directory where you want to install Transfer CFT. This is the directory where the Transfer CFT product files are installed.
Configuration filename

Enter the path, or navigate, to the configuration file (initialize.properties file) containing details for the Transfer CFT installation. This file defines settings such as hostname, license key, governance options, and so on.

If you do not specify a file, you can continue with the installation, but the installation procedure does not create the runtime directory. (Run the initialize command post installation if you opt to create the runtime directory at a later date.)
