Registering a delegate using SSH

To succeed, the following statements about the login account used to perform this procedure must be true:
  • The account exists on both the master host and on the delegate host.
  • The account has serviced CLI privileges.
  • The account has either public key authentication or password authentication enabled on the master host and on the delegate host.
Use this procedure to create the authentication credentials that delegate hosts require, and to register the credentials through an SSH connection.

Perform these steps on the Control Center master host:

  1. Gain access to the Control Center host, through the console interface of your hypervisor, or through a remote shell utility such as PuTTY.
  2. Log in as the root user.
  3. Use the Down Arrow key to select Root Shell, and then press Enter.
    The menu is replaced by a command prompt similar to the following example:
    [root@resmgr ~]#
  4. Display the host IDs of all cluster hosts.
    serviced host list | cut -c-85
    The host ID is in the first column of the output.
  5. Create authentication credentials for a delegate host and register the credentials.
    If the master and delegate host are configured for key-based access, the following command does not prompt you to add the delegate to the list of known hosts or to provide the password of the remote user account.
    Replace Host-ID with the host ID of a delegate host:
    serviced key reset --register Host-ID
  6. Repeat the preceding step for each delegate host in your deployment.
