CData Sync Amazon Machine Instance (AMI) は、CData Sync が事前設定されたLinux ベースのインスタンスですぐに使用可能であり、追加の設定はほとんど必要ありません。このAMI はAWS Marketplace にCData Sync として登録されています。

CData Sync インスタンスを起動

  1. AMI にサブスクライブして、規約に同意します。サブスクライブすると、CData Sync の新しいインスタンスを設定できます。
  2. インスタンスを設定します。
    • インスタンスの種類を選択してください。詳しくは、CData Sync のライセンスページ を参照してください。
    • セキュリティグループを設定してください。CData Sync はデフォルトのHTTPS ポート(443)で動作します。CData Sync にアクセスするIP アドレスがこのポートに接続できることを確認してください。
    • 新しいキーペアを作成するか、既存のものを選択してください。pem ファイルはSSH でインスタンスにアクセスする際使用するので、保存しておいてください。
  3. [Launch] ボタンを押してEC2 インスタンスを作成し、CData Sync を起動します。

CData Sync へブラウザからアクセス

インスタンスが起動すると、EC2 のマネジメントコンソールに表示されます。このURL から、ブラウザ上でCData Sync にアクセスできます。


ログイン用のデフォルトユーザー名は”admin” で、パスワードはインスタンスがランダムに生成した、接頭辞がSync21: のインスタンスID です。For example, if the Instance-ID is i-1234a, the initial password to access Sync is Sync21:i-1234a. After logging in, you can change the password for the ‘admin’ user in the top right corner of the browser.

これで、はじめに セクションを参考に接続を作成し、ジョブを管理することができます。

AMI を管理

CData Sync AMI は作成後、追加設定なしで動作します。Below provides information on AMI-specific management tasks for CData Sync.

インスタンスにSSH 接続

サービスの高度な設定をする際に、EC2 インスタンスへのSSH 接続が役立つ場合があります。CData Sync AMI は通常のUbuntu 16 VM 上に構築されており、メインユーザーは”ubuntu” です。インスタンスを起動した際に選択したキーペアを使用して、このマシンにSSH 接続することができます。

ssh -i 自身のキーペア.pem ubuntu@<インスタンスのパブリックDNS>

CData Sync サービスを制御

CData Sync is run as a systemd service in an AMI depoyment, rather than in-process. The service definition file can be found here:


Sync should be started, stopped, and restarted using standard systemd commands:

sudo systemctl restart cdatasync
sudo systemctl stop cdatasync
sudo systemctl start cdatasync

Sync アプリケーションに変更を加える前に、サービスを停止させることを推奨します。


All of Sync’s configuration and application data is held in the Application Directory. By default, the Application Directory is located here:


The Application Directory path can be configured via the sync.xml file in the webapp folder, as described in the Configuring the Application Directory section.

DB Folder

The db folder contains the database files for the default Derby database. Note that the application database can be configured to use an external database as described in the next section.

Lib Folder

The libs folder is where the application reads external resources, like drivers for connectors that require an external driver. Place .jar or .class resources in this folder and restart Sync to allow the application to read these resources.

Webapp Folder

The webapp folder contains the sync.xml file that determines the configuration of the Jetty server hosting the application. This file can be used to change the port the server listens on, enable a plaintext listener (i.e. HTTP instead of HTTPS), and configure any other Jetty server settings.

Additionally, the sync.xml file determines the location of the Application Directory and the database connection for the Application Database.

Configure the Application Directory

The Application Directory is configured using the sync.xml file in the webapp folder, described in the previous section.

To configure the Application Directory to a non-default location, first find the following snippet within the sync.xml file

<!-- The APP_DIRECTORY setting is used to explicitly configure a path where profile information is stored.
<Call name="setInitParameter">
  <Arg><SystemProperty name="sync.home" default="."/></Arg>
</Call -->

Uncomment the <Call> tag within this snippet, and fill in the APP_DIRECTORY argument to the desired folder location. For example:

<Call name="setInitParameter">

Application Database

By default, Sync uses a Derby database for connection, jobs, application settings and general application logs. This Derby database is located in the db folder of the Application Directory, as described in the previous section.

Sync can be configured to use an external database like MySQL. Similar to configuring the Application Directory, the Application Database is configured in the sync.xml file within the webapp folder.

To configure the Application Database, first find the following snippet within the sync.xml file:

<!-- By default, CData Sync will use a local Derby database to store information on jobs, connections application settings and logs. The APP_DB setting may be used to configure a database external to the application that will be used to store this information.
<Call name="setInitParameter">
</Call> -->

Uncomment the <Call> tag within this snippet, and fill in the APP_DB with a connection string for the target database.

Ports and SSL

By default, Sync listens for SSL connections (HTTPS) on port 8443. Sync is unable to bind to the default HTTPS port (443) due to permissions restrictions, so an iptables rule redirects traffic from port 443 to port 8443. No further action is required for standard HTTPS traffic to reach Sync’s web server.

Sync AMIs include a self-signed certificate for use when hosting an SSL server. If the SSL server needs to be hosted using a certificate signed by a Certificate Authority, then the CA should be contacted directly to procure a certificate.

Enabling HTTP Connections

To add a plaintext/non-SSL port (i.e. HTTP instead of HTTPS), you will need to edit the sync.xml file to enable the plaintext listener. Due to permissions restrictions, this listener cannot directly bind to port 80, so it is established on port 8080 and an iptables rule must be established to forward traffic from port 80 to port 8080.

First, find the snipet within the sync.xml files that enables the HTTPS listener:

<!-- Set the connectors on the server object -->
  <Call name="setConnectors">
    <Array type="org.eclipse.jetty.server.ServerConnector">
      <!-- Remove this comment to allow plaintext connections.
        <Ref refid="httpConnector" />
        <Ref refid="httpsConnector" />
<!-- / Set the connectors on the server object -->

Within this snippet, uncomment the <Item> element that references the ‘httpConnector’ configuration.

Then, create a new iptables rule to forward traffic from port 80 to port 8080:

iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080
/usr/libexec/iptables/iptables.init save

Finally, restart the Sync service so that the above changes come into effect.


Upgrading Sync requires launching a new instance of the latest Sync AMI. Before launching the new instance, data should be copied over from the old instance so that the application configuration is preserved in the new instance.

Sync includes a migration tool to easily export and import the configured Connections and Jobs in the application. Navigate to the Settings page and the Migration tab. Select ‘Export’ to export all settings (Connections, Jobs, Users, History) to a .zip file.

On the new instance, import the configuration settings from the same Migration Tab. Select ‘Import’ then navigate to the .zip file downloaded previously.

Add a New Connector

New connnectors can be added through the UI following the steps outlined on the Connections page. However, you may be required to manually update or add the connector to your instance following the below steps:

  • SSH into the AMI
  • Stop the jetty service
    sudo systemctl stop cdatasync
  • Open new command prompt and copy the connector to your instance using scp:
    scp -i ./path/to/my_key_pair.pem ./path/to/cdata.jdbc.<providername>.jar ubuntu@<instance_public_dns>:/home/ubuntu/cdata.jdbc.<providername>.jar
  • Back in previous command prompt, copy to libs folder:
    sudo cp ./home/ubuntu/cdata.jdbc.<providername>.jar /opt/sync/libs/cdata.jdbc.<providername>.jar
  • Start the jetty service:
    sudo systemctl start cdatasync
