Step A: Run the Configuration Script - AWS Elemental Delta

This is version 2.3 of the AWS Elemental Delta documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Delta Documentation.

Step A: Run the Configuration Script

Run the configuration script to enable user authentication if users are required to provide credentials to access the nodes. You must perform this procedure at the Linux command line for the leader node.

To run the configuration script

  1. At your workstation, start a remote terminal session to the AWS Elemental Delta node.

  2. At the Linux prompt, log in with the elemental user credentials.

  3. Change to the folder where the configuration script is located with this command:

    [elemental@hostname ~]$ cd /opt/elemental_se
  4. Run the configuration script with this command:

    [elemental@hostname elemental_se]$ sudo ./configure -a

    where -a specifies to show only the user authentication prompts.

  5. Enter Yes to this prompt: Do you wish to enable authentication?

  6. The system prompts you to enter a username, email address and password for an “admin” user. Use these credentials when you log into the web interface in the next step.

Once the configuration is complete, the elemental service starts.

Installation and configuration complete! . . . Enjoy!
