Hi there:

How do I create a worker group and add a worker to it and make sure that this worker is not member of any other group ..?

Thanks

You create a group by adding workers to a group.  If the group didn't exist prior to you adding a worker to it, it is created.  When there are no more workers in the group, it no longer exists.

You add workers to a group either through their local qb.conf or through a central qbwrk.conf on the supervisor.

See sections 5.3 & 4.2 in the Administration guide which is available under the Help menu in Qube or via our online docs:

Hello Brian:

How can I make sure that a worker belongs to only one group - would like to isolate a worker for only test purpose ..?

Thanks

Workers are assigned to groups in only one place... either their local qb.conf or the supervisor's central qbwrk.conf (one or the other, not both).  If you want to ensure that a worker is only in one group, only assign it to one group.  It's as simple as that.

If you're trying to restrict access to the worker such that it *only* accepts jobs sent to X, then you would want to set a worker_restriction & use clusters instead of groups.

example:

worker_restrictions = /test
worker_cluster = /test

then when you submit a job, select the '/test' Priority Cluster in the submission dialog.

See section 10.3.26 in the Administration Guide for more details on restrictions. http://pipelinefx.com/docs/
