This is a backend server in a distributed system, it provides the cache functionality. You setup this profile if you want a dedicated server providing cache functionality.
This profile is used in the Distributed Backend Distributed Frontend and Distributed Backend Hybrid Frontend topologies.
Baruwa Enterprise Edition >= 2.0.7 uses an automated wizard based utility called baruwa-setup to configure, update and manage the system. On the first run this utility collects configuration information from the user, performs any required software updates and then configures the system based on the profile selected and the configuration data collected. This simplifies the whole setup and management process so the user does not have to manually edit any configuration files.
The baruwa-setup command is idempotent, meaning it safe to run multiple times and will only make changes if they are required. All future updates and configuration changes to the system should be done using the baruwa-setup command. The utility has a man page that documents all the options available.
A pass phrase is required to secure the authentication information that is collected.
Make sure you choose a strong pass phrase which is easy for you to remember but difficult to guess for others, a long sentence describing a personal experience is a good pass phrase.
To start the configuration process login to the server with the username
the password you set during installation.
Then issue the baruwa-setup command at the command prompt:
The program will ask you to set a passphrase, enter the passphrase and press enter re-enter the same passphrase again to confirm. If the passphrase is accepted the System settings screen below will be displayed.
Do not loose this passphrase, there is no way to recover it. A reinstallation will be required if you loose the passphrase.
In a cluster the passphrase should be the same on all the cluster members.
This screen configures the basic system settings. The description of the options is as follows:
