Vertica configuration informations

Hi all!
We are working with vertica DB servers and it is all new for us and we don't know a couple of things. I was looking for the configuration file. but i couldnt find that. Can you please tell me were can i find the basic informations about my server eg: ports open, ip address, version, IP of other nodes in cluster etc...
I am looking for something like the MySQL config file where i can find all the basic informations about my server and the BD on it.
I hope i was clear and you can understand my needs :)

    Check the file: /opt/vertica/config/admintools.conf

    Plus these system tables are helpful:

    @Jim_Knicely thank you! But can you tell me if is there another way than checking the tables, because our script should check the type of the DB server even when the databases service is not running.

    /opt/vertica/config/admintools.conf will contain some of the information you requested. node IP's, vertica version, port etc.

    Hmm. Didn't I say "Check the file: /opt/vertica/config/admintools.conf"? :p


    @salgokrisz, what do you mean by "type of DB server?" Version?

    You can use admintools on the command line to show some useful DB info.
