Angry Red Hat Cluster Luci Authentication Failed

Hello everyone,

I'm setting up a cluster with 2 nodes using Red Hat enterprise 6.2 x86_64, 1 luci and 1 ricci.
Ricci is installed and already running and luci is installed and running but at the time of add and create the cluster through the web gui it give me a error of:

The following errors occurred while creating cluster: Authentication to the ricci agent at failed

The firewall Port: 11111 is enable and SELinux is off, even happen with the firewall off.

Does anyone know how to renew or replace luci password ? Also the Admin user permissions in web gui in empty. How to add a user ?

Thanks guys!

Dunno if RHEL changed it from v5 to v6 I wouldn't think but you can change the password this way.

# service luci stop
# /usr/sbin/luci_admin password

Umm I always install both ricci & luci on both nodes; maybe you don't need too not sure.

luci uses /etc/passwd for the potential non-root user accounts for the GUI. You have to initially login the luci as that user to "jump start" it and then logout, login as root again, go to the admin tab and you can add them. Thats how I did it..

Good luck.

Problem was solved for the authentication issue, a password must be assigned to ricci and that is not in red hat manual on how to build a conga cluster.

# passwd ricci

To follow up with typeav's reply: you have to set a password on each node for user 'ricci' (like he says "# passwd ricci"), and when attempting to connect to the node from the "Create Cluster" form, where it (stupidly) says "ROOT password", you must enter the password you provided for user 'ricci' on the node. God only knows why the authors chose to use "Root Password" for the prompt for the ricci user. I wasted a day on that idiotic choice.
