Gotcha – as the cluster does not run a centralized authentication/authorization service at this time you’ll need to ensure matching user accounts are created on all machines. You can use the
pdsh tool to add users across the cluster quickly and easily.
After your have sshed in to your login node as the default
alces admin user, run something like this:
pdsh -g cluster sudo useradd ed-test-2
We’ll be adding tools that will aid this kind of configuration in a future release.
