NAME

        INIT CLUSTER - Initialize Slony-I cluster
 

SYNOPSIS

        INIT CLUSTER [ID = integer] [COMMENT = ’string’]
 

DESCRIPTION

        Initialize  the  first  node  in a new Slony-I replication cluster. The
        initialization process consists  of  creating  the  cluster  namespace,
        loading all the base tables, functions, procedures and initializing the
        node, using “schemadocinitializelocalnode( integer, text )” [not avail‐
        able as a man page] and “schemadocenablenode( integer )” [not available
        as a man page].
 
        ID     The unique, numeric ID number of the node.
 
        COMMENT = ’comment text’
               A descriptive  text  added  to  the  node  entry  in  the  table
               “sl_node” [not available as a man page].
 
        For this process to work, the SQL scripts of the Slony-I system must be
        installed on the DBA workstation (the computer currently executing  the
        slonik utility), while on the system where the node database is running
        the shared objects of the Slony-I system must be installed in the Post‐
        greSQL  library directory. Also the procedural language PL/pgSQL is as‐
        sumed to already be installed in the target database.
 

EXAMPLE

        INIT CLUSTER (
           ID = 1,
           COMMENT = ’Node 1’
        );
 
               Note
 
               This command functions very similarly to STORE NODE(7), the dif‐
               ference being that INIT CLUSTER does not need to draw configura‐
               tion from other existing nodes.
        This command creates a new namespace and configures tables therein;  no
        public objects should be locked during the duration of this.
        This command was introduced in Slony-I 1.0
