How do i create an a/c at all nodes in the cluster
I have a BeoWulf 24node cluster. I have a user a/c in the main 'gateway'. But I cannot use this info to log into the nodes. So how do i create an a/c in the nodes. :cry:
The admn is a newbie and so am I. Does 'useradd' have features to make simultaneous a/c's at all the nodes??
I can ping the machines and they are connected. So how do I SSH into them???
Do reply asap.
Re: How do i create an a/c at all nodes in the cluster
Hi and thanks for the info david.
1) could you explain in brief how ldap works?
Whether a newbie can use it to create a single a/c that wud work in all the nodes?
2) I did try using the "gui - User manager", but to no avail.
I was able to access only the gateway but not the nodes.
I did check all the settings, but wasnt able to figure out how
to create a common login and pwd for all the nodes
3) could you give me a sample script to create the same
login and pwd at all the nodes.
Thanks for the help.

1) Take a look at:
I wouldn't implement it for only a couple of users though.
2) Something like:
if you just want to use a basic network authentication like NIS, which is a doddle to set up, you can just use a PAM module to automatically create any required directories when a user logs in to a node for the first time, not sure what's it's called off hand, but there is info about this in the NIS howto. alternateivly, share a /home partition with the network anyway,
