using dfuplus from windows app server

Post questions specific to installation or configuration for the HPCC Systems platform

Thu Jan 05, 2012 2:17 pm Change Time Zone

I have a Windows box with only the ECL IDE installed, would it be possible to use dfuplus to spray files directly from my local machine to a remote cluster? If not, is there some sort of dafilesrv component I can install locally or would I need to install all the hpcc/thor "stuff" to make it work?

Fyi, I've tried using dfuplus with localhost but it can't seem to find my file in filename.

dfuplus was made for just this type of application. In the docs, for example, here is a fixed spray operation:

C:\>dfuplus action=spray srcip=
srcfile=c:\import\timezones.txt dstname=RTTEMP::timezones.txt
dstcluster=thor format=fixed recordsize=155

And the DFUPLUS.INI file sppecifies where the "thor" is located:


So I think that you just need the real IP address instead of localhost, but what you are trying to do should work fine.

In order to use your local Windows box as a dropzone you would need a Windows version of dafileserv running on it, and there is only a Linux version currently being distributed.

You can interactively upload/download files (up to 2 Gb) from/to Windows machines, using a Linux dropzone, from the ECL Watch page.
