Create new host group
« on: January 10, 2014, 11:45:32 PM »
how do I create a new host group in qube 6.3.6? I thought i needed to modify the qube.conf but i already have 2 host groups qube recognizes, and there are none specified in that file.

A host group exists when a machine belongs to it.  It ceases to exist when no machines belong to it.

To add a machine to a host group, you do it in that machine's qb.conf or in the supervisor's central qbwrk.conf.  The parameter is worker_groups.


worker_groups = group1,group2


If you edit the qb.conf directly, you must restart the worker service for the changes to take effect.

If you edit the qbwrk.conf file directly, you must push out the new settings with qbadmin worker --reconfigure
