The configuration can be divided into three parts:
To add a user, you must edit master.conf
Suppose you want to add a user "alice" with password "cocacola". This user can only access ABCGrid using IP address "220.127.116.11". Then the entry for this user could be:
<user> <name>alice</name> <password>cocacola</password> <address>18.104.22.168</address> <priority>10</priority> <group>user</group> <home>/HOME/TO/ALICE/WORK</home> </user>Note:
ABCGrid's online update relys on a FTP server to store all necessary files including applications and databases. By default, ABCGrid uses ftp://gblast:email@example.com. To setup a local FTP server in your lab (for faster speed and better connectivity), you should follow the layout of above FTP server. Please see here for details.
To do so, you must edit update.conf
After you saved the file, you can input a command "u" in the console window of ABCMaster or restart the ABCMaster to apply the change.
The configuration entry of one service must be same on all platforms.
