There are two ways to invoke
cbcluster and configure minion nodes as a user other than root.
- If this is a new minion that is not added to the cluster, you can configure the new user when running
add-node, by including the new
$ /usr/share/cb/cbcluster add-node --hostname <my_host> --user <my_user>
This command configures
cbclusterto perform all remote actions for
<my_user>. The / etc/cb/cluster.conf file is updated to reflect the new configuration with the key-value pair "
- If this is an existing minion, the /etc/cb/cluster.conf file can be modified directly. Open the file in an editor, and for each minion node, add the key-value pair "
<my_user>is the actual username you want
cbclusterto use when connecting to that minion.Note: To avoid potential conflicts, do not select “cb” for a username.
