Host Setup

I am trying to add one more host to my vertica cluster, on executing the following am getting below error,

sudo /opt/vertica/sbin/update_vertica -A host1 -r file_name.deb -u dbadmin

Error: Existing single-node localhost (loopback) cluster cannot be expanded

Hint: Move cluster to external address first. See online documentation.

Installation FAILED with errors.

Please let me know the exact steps.

    Hello Rishsi,

    Some things to check here.

    1. Which IP address you are using to install vertica on new host- EXTERNAL / INTERNAL
    2. Have you set the /etc/hosts file on every node as well the new node to have the IP address of all nodes.
    3. Might be a silly one, check with --add-hosts and --rpm / --deb

    Hope this helps
