Unified Configuration

DIH is generally installed and operated as a stand-alone component, where you use a separate dih.cfg file to configure the DIH. However, in simple testing and training setups you can configure the DIH as part of a unified IDOL Server, by using the idolserver.cfg file.

For more details about unified and component setups, refer to the IDOL Getting Started Guide.

In a unified configuration, use the [DistributionSettings] section of the IDOLserver.cfg file to enter configuration options that normally appear in the [Server] section of the dih.cfg file for a stand-alone configuration. All other section names are the same in both configuration files.

There are two options for configuring DIH child servers, [DIHEngines] and [DistributionIDOLServers].

In a stand-alone HPE DIH with its own configuration file, you can use either option. However, you must use the same section format for all your child servers (that is, you must not specify some child servers in one type of section, and some in the other).

In a unified IDOL Server configuration, the section that you use depends on your system setup:

The configuration examples in this guide generally consider DIH as a stand-alone component, with its own configuration file.
