INIT CLUSTER - Initialize Slony-I cluster
INIT CLUSTER [ID = integer] [COMMENT = ’string’]
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.
INIT CLUSTER (
ID = 1,
COMMENT = ’Node 1’
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
