2. CLM administration

CLM administration panel is available by logging on to the https://<www_interface_address>/clm_admin where <www_interface_address> is the IP address of the Web interface (WI).

Administrative tasks include managing users, managing CM clusters and publishing messages with built-in information system.

2.1. User administration from CLM

In the most general case the registration includes the following steps (the procedure is described in more detail in the User’s Guide):

  • filling in the registration form (name, email address etc.),
  • email address confirmation
  • manual activation of the user by the administrator.

There are also simplified versions of the registration, that can be defined in configuration files /etc/cc1/clm/settings.py.

In particular, one can skip the step of email confirmation. This is the default setting after the installation. This does not require an email server to be present. It is possible to set an automatic activation of the user without the need for manual activation. This last option is not recommended, but may be useful in specific cases, such as hands-on tutorials, etc.

When new account is siged up, email notification is sent to each CLM admin.

Administration panel displaying all users of the system is shown in Figure CLM administration panel.

2.2. CM administration from CLM

At least one CM is required in the system. New CM can be added at any time thereafter. There are three actions available on the appropriate administrative panel (Figure CM administration from CLM).

Edit:allows you to edit the CM parameters such as name, IP address and communication port.
Remove:removes the CM entry from the database. CM cluster resources remain intact but the cluster is no longer available. This operation should be performed only in case of complete liquidation of the cluster.
Lock/Unlock:lock / unlock access to cluster. Locking and unlocking does not affect the internal state of the cluster. Virtual machines are not stopped.
