Adding nodes

node mode=add command

% cbsd node mode=add

Commands cbsd node mode=add .., at availability of the remote node via ssh and the correct password of the user CBSD, takes away a private key from the remote server and save it in the catalog $workdir/.rssh

Obligatory parameters for mode=add:

  • node = IP address or FQDN of server (in the list of notes, however, this server will be called how is specified in nodename on the remote node in $workdir/nc.inventory. This that name which is asked at the first start cbsd initenv
  • pw = password for CBSD user

Unessential argument:

  • port = alternative number of sshd port. By default, nodes of CBSD use port 22222 for connection on SSH.


The password of CBSD user is used only at the moment of receiving a private key. Respectively, access on the server will be until the key won't be removed or re-generated. Change of the password of the user account in this case won't work.
