  4. Navigate to the Cluster Configuration section on the left navigation bar and enter the following details:

    • Cluster Name: Provide a subdomain for the cluster name. The Redis Enterprise cluster name is a subdomain under the system domain, which is found under the Pivotal Application Service (PAS) in Ops Manager (PAS->Settings->Domains). For example, set the cluster name as CLUSTERNAME.sys.redislabs.com if your system domain is sys.redislabs.com. The cluster name becomes part of the connection string for Redis apps when connecting to Redis Enterprise databases using DNS-based connections.
    • Admin Email: Provide an email for the account that you want to have full administrative privileges to the new Redis Enterprise cluster.
    • Admin account password: Provide the password for the administrative account.
    • Optionally, for production clusters, you can also provide a static IP address of a set of static IP addresses (comma-separated) to use for cluster nodes. You can also enable Multiple Availability Zone (Rack) awareness.
    • Save your changes by clicking Save.
    Note -
    Make sure that the Cluster Recovery option is not selected during installation. This option is only for when you recover a cluster.

    You can check the box to enable exposing cluster metric if you would like to enable Loggregator functionality. You can also set the Metrics scrape interval in seconds. The default is 15 second. Save your changes by clicking Save.

    Import button

  8. Navigate to the Resource Config section on the left navigation bar.

    Ensure there are resources assigned to the required resources for Redis Enterprise. If you chose to enable metric export to Loggregator in the previous step, you must ensure that exactly 1 loggregator-agent instance is configured.
