This section provides information on installing, upgrading, and configuring HVR software on various platforms. Before proceeding with the installation, ensure that the following are available.
HVR Installation Distributionlink
Read the "COMPATIBILITY" section of the accompanying release notes (hvr.rel available in HVR_HOME directory) to ensure the version is compatible with the operating system and DBMS or refer to the relevant section in the HVR documentation - Platform Compatibility Matrix.
Install a database that will serve as a hub database. This database can be Oracle, Ingres, Microsoft SQL Server, DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, DB2 for I, PostgreSQL, Hana, or Teradata. Initially, the database may be empty. The hub database will be used as a repository for the HVR channels. It will contain the list of tables to be replicated, actions defined, etc. For Oracle, the hub database is typically just an empty schema within the capture database or the target database. For more information about the grants for the hub database, refer to the respective Location Class Requirements section.
HVR License Filelink
After purchasing an HVR license, the HVR technical support will send you an email with an HVR license file (hvr.lic). For more information on the license file and how to install it, refer to the HVR Licensing section.
