Instructor Guide

This section covers the setup and configuration of the Cloud Pak for Data cluster as well as supporting services necessary for the workshop. This involves the following steps:

NOTE: Many of these sections either require or should be completed by a user with Administrator user role to the Cloud Pak for Data cluster (i.e the admin account in a default installation).

Platform Configuration

There are a couple of steps to configure services and setup the platform so users can access the environment. This covers:

  • Adding user accounts to cluster.

Run through the instructions in the Platform Configuration Readme

Database Setup

The workshop uses data stored in various data sources, these databases need to be installed / provisioned and setup prior to the workshop. This involves:

  • Provisioning databases.

  • Loading data.

  • Gathering connection information.

Run through the instructions in the Database Setup Readme

Database Connection Configuration

For Cloud Pak for Data to access the databases we setup above, we need to add Data Connections to connect to them via JDBC. (Note: You must complete the Database Setup section before this section.)

  • Adding global connection.

Run through the instructions in the Database Connection Configuration Readme

Data Virtualization Configuration

In order to run through the data virtualization module in the workshop, we need to configure the DV instance that has been provisioned in the cluster. (Note: You must complete the Database Connection and Platform Configuration sections before this section.). This involves:

  • Provisioning Data Virtualization instance.

  • Adding users to Data Virtualization instance.

  • Add connections to DV.

  • Setup virtualized data for backup.

Run through the instructions in the Database Virtualization Configuration Readme

Watson Knowledge Catalog Configuration

In order to run through the WKC modules in the workshop, we need to configure WKC.

  • Loading assets into database.

  • Setting up the enterprise catalog.

Run through the instructions in the WKC Configuration Readme

Watson OpenScale Configuration

We setup the a sample model and content in Watson OpenScale. (Note: You must complete the Database Setup section before this section.).

  • Run fastpath configuration.

Run through the instructions in the OpenScale Configuration Readme
