unable to re-read global config file
« on: June 20, 2007, 11:30:41 PM »
Hi there,

When I run "qbadmin worker -reconfigure" to try to push out qbwrk.conf to the workers, I get this error message:

"ERROR: unable to re-read global config file."

Ideas, anyone?

Thanks!

Bruce

Hey Bruce,

    Normally you get that error if your account is not administrative.  If you login under the "root" or "administrator" it will allow the re-read. 

     Thanks,

Just to make sure that it hasn't been overlooked, was this the account named "Administrator"? or was it a windows user which is in the Administrative group?

Hi Anthony,

Eric just talked me through it - I was logged in as administrator, but not Administrator with a capital A.  All good now, thanks!

Bruce, as we discussed on the phone, you'll want to be a user with administrative privileges. You can find this list by running qbusers:
Code: [Select]
> qbusers --list
total 4
---l jcg krmpbuicseyqg-vft      [default]
asil jcg krmpbuicseyqgpvft      Administrator
asil jcg krmpbuicseyqgpvft      qube
asil jcg krmpbuicseyqgpvft      root
asil jcg krmpbuicseyqgpvft      system

Each user with the "a" in the 1st column has administrator privileges. In this case, the capital "A" Administrator would be who you would need to be logged in as.
Otherwise, if your installation has other Qube admins, you will need to log in as one of those.
You could then add small "a" administrator for the future.
