Prepare the VMs before installing your ThoughtSpot cluster(s).
  1. SSH into a VM.
     $ ssh -i key.pem [email protected]<VM-IP>
    
  2. Run sudo /usr/local/scaligent/bin/prepare_disks.sh to configure the VMs.

     $ sudo /usr/local/scaligent/bin/prepare_disks.sh
    
  3. Configure the VM based on your specific network information. Refer to your site-survey or ask your network administrator for that information.

  4. Run df -h to confirm configuration.
     $ df -h
    
  5. Repeat these steps for each of your VMs.

    When complete, your storage is mounted and ready for use with your cluster.

When the setup is complete, you can load data into ThoughtSpot for search analytics.

Open the required network ports

If you have not already opened the required network ports, see Network policies to determine which ports to open.

Install Cluster

Next, you must configure your nodes and install your cluster. Follow the steps in Installing AWS.
