To start the GoldenGate Director Server, we need to run the startWebLogic.sh script located in the “domain” sub-directory of the GoldenGate Director Server software installation directory.

[oracle@redhat346 bin]$ cd /u01/oracle/gg-director

[oracle@redhat346 gg-director]$ ls
cds_current_db_config.xml cds-tool-error.log cds-tool.log domain domain-new.jar ggs.url notices.txt uninstall

[oracle@redhat346 gg-director]$ cd domain

[oracle@redhat346 domain]$ cd bin

[oracle@redhat346 bin]$ ls
log4j.properties server_migration setDomainEnv.sh startPointBaseConsole.sh stopManagedWebLogic.sh
nodemanager service_migration startManagedWebLogic.sh startWebLogic.sh stopWebLogic.sh

[oracle@redhat346 domain]$ ./startWebLogic.sh.
* To start WebLogic Server, use a username and *
* password assigned to an admin-level user. For *
* server administration, use the WebLogic Server *
* console at http://hostname:port/console *
starting weblogic with Java version:
java version “1.6.0_11”
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_11-b03)


Note: we need to keep this window open!

We can now use the Director Administrator tool to create and modify administrator user accounts and manage data sources.

In the bin sub-directory under the top level directory where we installed the GoldenGate Director Client, we will find two shell scripts for launching the Director Administrator and the Director Client.

[oracle@redhat346 bin]$ cd /u01/oracle/gg-client/

[oracle@redhat346 gg-client]$ ls
bin etc GDSC Admin Tool GoldenGate-Director libs META-INF notices.txt Oracle GDSC Admin Tool.desktop Oracle GoldenGate-Director.desktop uninstall

[oracle@redhat346 gg-client]$ cd bin

[oracle@redhat346 bin]$ ls
run-admin.sh run-director.sh

Note – the default password for the admin user is ‘admin’ – we can change that via the Director Administrator tool.

[oracle@redhat346 bin]$ ./run-admin.sh

From the GoldenGate Director Client, we can manage all the GoldenGate instances in our environment as well as use a GUI to execute any of the command line GSSCI commands. We can also create and modify Extract and Replicat processes as well as get a diagramatical representation of the data extraction and replication processes currently running. We launch the Director Client by running the run-director.sh script as shown below.

[oracle@redhat346 bin]$ ./run-director.sh

GoldenGate Director Web

The browser based web client can be launched from the URL shown below ……

    I am having trouble with using GG Client..
    In 3rd Screen from top, When I give my localhost FQN, I get following error message?

    Any suggestion

    Checking connection to: blake.cintra.com:7808
    Test is running directly from Director Server.
    Opening connection…
    Failed to connect to the server: Connection refused

    Thanks for this tutorial. Is the WebLogic part of installation with this Director client or we can configure to run in other app server also like Websphere?

    Hi Gavin,

    Have been following your GoldenGate tutorials to install and use Director, but when trying to login with Admin Tool, using user ‘admin/admin’, I get the following error message:

    Failed to get login context. (…) User: admin, failed to be authenticated.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks a lot!

    Gavin, regarding my last post, is solved now. I was starting WebLogic from Oracle Middleware home, not from the directory created during Director Server install (/u01/oracle/gg-director/domain/bin). Thanks.
