Configure ThoughtSpot nodes on your Dell appliance.

After you connect the appliance, a command line appears on your console. Configure the nodes on this command line. Follow the steps in this checklist.

Step 1: Get a template for network configuration
Step 2: Prepare node configuration
Step 3: Configure the nodes
Step 4: Confirm node configuration

Step 1: Get a template for network configuration

Make sure you have logged into your cluster. If you have not, use admin credentials to log in to your cluster.

Run the tscli cluster get-config command to get a template for network configuration. Redirect it to the file nodes.config.
You can find more information on this process in the nodes.config file reference.

$ tscli cluster get-config |& tee nodes.config

Step 2: Prepare node configuration

  1. Add your specific network information for the nodes in the nodes.config file, as demonstrated in the autodiscovery of one node example. Run vim nodes.config to edit the file.
     $ vim nodes.config
    
  2. Fill in the areas specified in Parameters of the nodes.config file with your specific network information.
    If you have additional nodes, complete each node within the nodes.config file in the same way.

Do not edit any part of the nodes.config file except the sections described in Parameters of the nodes.config file. If you delete quotation marks, commas, or other parts of the code, it may cause setup to fail.

Step 3: Configure the nodes

Configure the nodes in the nodes.config file using the set-config command.

Run $ cat nodes.config | tscli cluster set-config in your terminal.
If the command returns an error, refer to set-config error recovery.

$ cat nodes.config | tscli cluster set-config

Done setting up ThoughtSpot

Step 4: Confirm node configuration

Use the get-config command to confirm node configuration.
Your output may look similar to the following:

$ tscli cluster get-config

{
  "ClusterId": "",
  "ClusterName": "",
  "DataNetmask": "255.255.252.0",
  "DataGateway": "192.168.4.1",
  "IPMINetmask": "255.255.252.0",
  "IPMIGateway": "192.168.4.1",
  "Timezone": "America/Los_Angeles",
  "NTPServers": "0.centos.pool.ntp.org,1.centos.pool.ntp.org,2.centos.pool.ntp.org,3.centos.pool.ntp.org",
  "DNS": "192.168.2.200,8.8.8.8",
  "SearchDomains": "example.company.com",
  "Nodes": {
	"ac:1f:6b:8a:77:f6": {
  	"NodeId": "ac:1f:6b:8a:77:f6",
  	"Hostname": "Thoughtspot-server1",
  	"DataIface": {
    	"Name": "eth2",
    	"IPv4": "192.168.7.70"
  	},
  	"IPMI": {
    	"IPv4": "192.168.5.70"
  	}
	}
  }
}

Install your cluster

Next, install your cluster.
