Step 1: Install MariaDB Enterprise Server


This page details step 1 of the 6-step procedure "Deploy Galera Cluster Topology".

This step installs MariaDB Enterprise Server.

MariaDB Enterprise Server installations support MariaDB Enterprise Cluster, powered by Galera. MariaDB Enterprise Cluster 10.4 uses the Galera Enterprise 4 wsrep provider plugin.

MariaDB Enterprise Cluster requires an odd number of 3 or more nodes. Nodes must meet requirements.

Interactive commands are detailed. Alternatively, the described operations can be performed using automation.

Retrieve Customer Download Token

MariaDB Corporation provides package repositories for CentOS / RHEL (YUM), Debian / Ubuntu (APT), and SLES (ZYpp). A download token is required to access the MariaDB Enterprise Repository.

  1. Navigate to

  2. Log in.

  3. Copy the Customer Download Token.

Substitute your token for CUSTOMER_DOWNLOAD_TOKEN when configuring the package repositories.

Set Up Repository

  1. On each Enterprise Cluster node install the prerequisites for downloading the software from the Web.

    Install on CentOS / RHEL (YUM):

    $ sudo yum install wget

    Install on Debian / Ubuntu (APT):

    $ sudo apt install wget apt-transport-https

    Install on SLES (ZYpp):

    $ sudo zypper install wget
  2. On each Enterprise Cluster node, configure package repositories and specify Enterprise Server 10.4:

    $ wget
    $ echo "f8eb9c1b59ccfd979d27e39798d2f2a98447dd29e2149ce92bf606aab4493ad9  mariadb_es_repo_setup" \
           | sha256sum -c -
    $ chmod +x mariadb_es_repo_setup
    $ sudo ./mariadb_es_repo_setup --token="CUSTOMER_DOWNLOAD_TOKEN" --apply \
          --skip-maxscale \
          --skip-tools \

Install Enterprise Server

On each Enterprise Cluster node, install MariaDB Enterprise Server and MariaDB Enterprise Backup.

Install via CentOS / RHEL (YUM):

$ sudo yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-backup

Install via Debian / Ubuntu (APT):

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install mariadb-server mariadb-backup
