Linux agent installation: How to specify which user to use? #3937

HealingQuickly ·

Hello Robin

I'm trying to install a Linux agent, before running agent.sh, I have some questions about the agent properties.

How does QB determine which Linux user it is? Is it "root" by default?
How can I specify a particular user within that Linux machine, for example when I have limited licenses for certain tools, I'd like to make sure QB will utilize that Linux agent on behalf of the user I specified.

Is there a place to change such property before running agent.sh? I looked at /conf/wrapper.conf, and agent.sh itself, I couldn't find it.
(Is there a way to change it, when the agent has been installed?)

Thank you for answering all this!

Hi Robin

Thanks for the reply

I followed the Unix installation guide, and I ran "agent.sh start", the terminal outputs say the agent is running, but it stops in about 3 seconds.
I modified conf/node.properties, APP_NAME, APP_LONG_NAME, because the Linux machine is also an agent for another QB server.

What could be the problem here? Did I miss anything?

Thanks

I tried to run bin/config.sh, and it gives the following error

What seems to be the issue?

Thanks!

The config.sh needs to GUI terminal to run. But you can edit "node.properties" directly. As to why the process fails, please check logs/console.log and logs/quickbuild.log for details. Two things to note: 1. have you changed the port in node.properties? 2. does the agent process own all files recursively under the agent installation directory?
