Adding the master host to a resource pool

Complete this procedure to add the Control Center master host to the default resource pool or to a new resource pool named master.
  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. Start a command-line session as root as follows:
    1. In the Appliance Administration menu, select Root Shell.
    2. Select Run, and then press Enter.
    The menu is replaced by a command prompt similar to the following example:
    [root@hostname ~]#
  3. Optional: Create a new resource pool, if necessary.
    • For single-host deployments, skip this step.
    • For multi-host deployments, perform the following substeps.
    1. Create a new pool named master.
      serviced pool add master
    2. Assign administrative and distributed file system (DFS) permissions to the new resource pool.
      serviced pool set-permission --admin --dfs master
  4. Add the master host to a resource pool.
    For single-host deployments, add the master host to the default resource pool.

    Replace Hostname-Or-IP with the hostname or IP address of the Control Center master host:

    serviced host add Hostname-Or-IP:4979 default

    If you enter a hostname, all hosts in your Control Center cluster must be able to resolve the name, either through an entry in /etc/hosts, or through a nameserver on your network.

    For multi-host deployments, add the master host to the master resource pool and register its authentication token.

    Replace Hostname-Or-IP with the hostname or IP address of the Control Center master host:

    serviced host add --register Hostname-Or-IP:4979 master

    If you enter a hostname, all hosts in your Control Center cluster must be able to resolve the name, either through an entry in /etc/hosts, or through a nameserver on your network.

  5. To exit the command-line session, at the command prompt, enter exit.
