The Data Center Console is intended to be installed on an independent server and should not be installed on the same host with CDP.
- CDP Server Upgrade – Before installing DCC, you should upgrade all CDP servers that you intend to register with DCC to version 3.18. See Upgrading Enterprise Edition for Windows, Upgrading Enterprise Edition for Linux.
- MySQL Database Creation – DCC is a MySQL-based application and requires a customer-supplied MySQL database instance and schema in order to properly install and run. The DCC installation and upgrade will handle all table creation and any upgrade data migration. However, customers are responsible for the general health, maintenance, and availability of the MySQL database. A MySQL database instance and user account should be created in advance with account permissions allowing you to create, read, update, and delete objects within the account. DCC requires the MySQL database instance to be supported by the InnoDB storage engine.
For instructions on how to create MySQL user accounts and set their permissions, see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/user-account-management.html (external link).
