Before You Configure the SRC VTA
Because the SRC VTA relies on other components in the SRC network, you must complete several tasks before you configure the SRC VTA.
Before you configure the SRC, you must complete the following tasks:
Deploy a working SRC network.
To support the SRC VTA, you must install SAEs to manage the routers or other devices through which subscribers connect to the network.
See Configuring the SAE (SRC CLI).
Configure the SRC Web application server.
(Optional) Configure a NIC that identifies the SAE reference for each subscriber type. You need to complete this task only if your configuration requires a NIC—for example, if an event handler action affects more than just the current subscriber described by an event.
(Optional) Create the Java scripts that the SRC VTA invokes.
On a separate host, install a relational database to store the data that the SRC VTA tracks. You must have the database server running, and then you must create the SRC VTA database within your database server.
To allow the SRC Web application server to connect to your external database, copy the JDBC driver
.jarfile for your database server brand and version to the
/opt/UMC/appsvr/common/libdirectory on every system running the SRC VTA.
Configure the associated services and policies.
Configure your subscribers and subscriptions.
Configure the SAE to send tracking events to the SRC VTA.
