Configuring Nexus with the Talend Administration Center Zip file

After the installation of Nexus, you can use Talend Administration Center Zip file to configure your instance.

About this task


  1. Unzip the Talend Administration Center Zip file, then unzip the file.
  2. Inside the file, you can find the migration-A.B.C folder that contains the migration script as well as a .properties file.
  3. Copy the <NewNexusInstallationDirectory>\migration-A.B.C folder to the location of your choice.
  4. Open the migration-A.B.C\ file and check the URL, port, and login connection information. Also check the version format. Update these parameters if needed and save your changes.
  5. Launch Nexus.
  6. Log into the Sonatype Nexus Repository Web application. In the file, you can find the application URL. After the first connection, it is strongly recommended to change the default credentials of the default administrator account.
  7. Browse to the migration-A.B.C folder and execute the following command: java -jar <nexus-migration-A.B.C.jar> in which <nexus-migration-A.B.C.jar> corresponds to the .jar file name that is in the migration-A.B.C folder. For example: java -jar nexus-migration-8.0.1.jar.
