Installation into Server
The following steps are needed to install IBM InfoSphere MDM Components into CloverDX Server:
Install CloverDX Server.
Download the ZIP file with IBM InfoSphere MDM Components for Server and store it on the system where CloverDX Server is installed. See Downloading for instructions for the download.
The ZIP file contains a CloverDX plugin. Your Server installation needs to be configured to find and load the plugin from the ZIP file. This is done by setting the engine.plugins.additional.src Server configuration property to the absolute path of the ZIP file, e.g.
engine.plugins.additional.src=../opt/CloverDX/ibm-mdm-12.0-connectors.5.11.0.zip(in case the Server is configured via a property file).
Details for setting the configuration property depend on your Server installation specifics, application server used etc. Typically the property would be set similarly to how you set-up the properties for connection to the Server’s database. Updating the configuration property usually requires restart of the Server.
To verify that the plugin was loaded successfully, login to the Server’s Reporting Console and look in the Configuration > CloverDX Info > Plugins page. In the list of plugins you should see
It is not possible to install multiple versions of IBM InfoSphere MDM plugin into one CloverDX Server.
If you get an
Unknown component or
Unknown connection error when running a graph with IBM InfoSphere MDM components, it means that the IBM InfoSphere MDM Components plugin was not loaded by the Server successfully.
Please check the above steps to install the plugin, especially the path to the ZIP file.
