It is necessary to create a local.conf file in order to set the local machine configuration such as the antidot user, etc.
- Run the following commands:
As root user
mkdir -p /usr/local/afs7/setup
chown antidot:antidot /usr/local/afs7
chown antidot:antidot /usr/local/afs7/setup
- Create the following file:
As antidot user
Add the following lines:
- $BACK_OFFICE_HOST is the server hosting the Back Office ("localhost" by default, in singlebox installation).
- $MY_DATACENTER is the name of the datacenter. Its corresponds to a flag that can be used to group servers to ease their identification. Its default value is AFS Datacenter. Once set, it must never be modified.
The following section explains how user identification works when a KHUB_ADMIN publishes content from Fluid Topics.
1. A Fluid Topics KHUB_ADMIN user is able to send an archive to Fluid Topics.
When reaching Fluid Topics, the archive is sent to the Back Office.
2. The archive is then handled by a Back Office user (different from the Fluid Topics one) in order to be sent to the appropriate processing pipelines.
The Back Office user must be set with the MANAGE right and be defined in the local.conf file:
By default, the user antidot with the password change_on_install is already declared in the Back Office with the required rights.
In our example, the following local.conf file is created:
