To Install the Analytics server

    sudo su -


    If prompted, enter the user password.

  2. Extract the contents of the tar file:

    tar -xvf brainspace-<version number>.tar

  3. In the directory where the tar file was extracted go into the new version directory and start the install:

    cd brainspace-<version number> && bash


    You can exit the installer at any time. To restart the installation, re-execute the bash command bash

    After the command is executed, the following menu will open.

    Note 1: The share from the Application Server should be /localdata/brainspace and the mount point on the ODA should be /localdata-share.

    Note 2: This will be asked for on the Analytics Server, however this just needs to be a directory on the Analytics Server and does NOT have to be a share from any other server.

    Note 3: To see how to configure this see Configure the data and localdata-shares article.

  9. Copy the license file from the installation directory to /var/lib/brains/.brainspace/brainspace_license.txt
