15.9. Remote configuration management

EVMS supports the administration of cluster nodes by any node in the cluster. For example, storage on remote cluster node node1 can be administered from cluster node node2. The following sections show how to set up remote administration through the various EVMS user interfaces.

15.9.1. Using the EVMS GUI

To designate node2 as the node to administer from the GUI, follow these steps:

  1. Select Settings->Node Administered...

  2. Select node2.

  3. Click Administer to switch to the new node.

The discovery of the remote configuration is initiated and the status bar displays the message "Now administering node node2," which indicates that the GUI is switched over and node node.

15.9.2. Using Ncurses

To designate node2 as the node to administer from Ncurses, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Settings pulldown menu.

  2. Scroll down with the down arrow to the "Node Administered" option and press Enter.

  3. The Administer Remote Node dialog opens. Select node2 and press spacebar.

    The node you selected is marked with an "x."

  4. Press Enter.

  5. The "EVMS is examining your system. Please wait" dialog opens. After a while you will be switched over to the node node2.

15.9.3. Using the CLI

To designate node2 as a node administrator from the CLI, issue this command:

evms -n node2
