1: If you want to secure connections with MongoDB using SSL, MongoDB Enterprise Server has to be manually installed on your machine. For more information, see https://docs.mongodb.com/v3.2/security/.

Prerequisites:

  • All the required files are downloaded. For more information, see Talend Installer specific prerequisites.

  • All the default ports are opened. For more informations, see Port information.

  • If you want to use the embedded MongoDB database, make sure that there are no other instance of MongoDB installed on your machine.

To perform a Custom installation, proceed as follows:

  1. Make sure the dist file is in the same folder as the Talend-Installer-YYYYYYYY_YYYY-VA.B.C-linux64-installer.run file.

  2. Make the Talend Installer file executable with the following command:

    chmod +x Talend-Installer-YYYYYYYY_YYYY-VA.B.C-linux64-installer.run

  3. Launch Talend Installer with the following command:

    ./Talend-Installer-YYYYYYYY_YYYY-VA.B.C-linux64-installer.run

    If you want to install Talend server modules as services, execute this command with the super-user rights.

  4. Accept the License Agreement.

  5. Choose the directory where you want your Talend product to be installed.

  6. Choose Advanced Install in the installation style list and Custom in the installation type list.

  7. Add your license file.

  8. Follow the configuration steps.

  9. Launch the installation.

  10. Once the installation is complete, you can remove the dist file to save some space on your disk.

Talend Installer creates a usedports.txt file where all the ports used by Talend Server modules are listed.

If you choose to install Talend Data Stewardship, a user with tds-user as username and duser as password is automatically created in MongoDB.

If you choose to install Talend Data Preparation, a user with dataprep-user as username and duser as password is automatically created in MongoDB.

If you chose to use the embedded MongoDB instance, Talend Installer generates the AdminUser.txt file at the root of the MongoDB installation folder. It contains the credentials for a user with the administrator rights in clear text. It is recommended to restrict the access to this file.
