Install a Distributed Database Node

Follow these instructions to install a distributed database node.
When working in a distributed database configuration, you can have multiple databases working with the Cortex XSOAR app server, known as database nodes. The database nodes connect to the Cortex XSOAR application server and provide additional database bandwidth to the main database.

  4. Run the node installation using the following command:
    sudo./demistonode-X.sh -- -external-address=<IP or hostname> -y
    .
    Parameter
    Description
    demistonode-X
    The name of the Cortex XSOAR database node installer, where X is the version and build number.
    external-address
    The node’s public IP address or hostname. This is the address that the node uses to register to the cluster and that the App Server uses to communicate with the node. Do not include the http or https prefix.
    y
    Answers all remaining installation questions with a yes (using default settings) and enables you to continue the installation silently.
    For example:
