Adding nodes to rundeck

I am still gaining operational knowledge of rundeck. Rundeck is an awesome job scheduling tool. Recently I was required to setup a job which is scheduled to run on a remote node. To perform this task you must edit the resource.xml file under the project directory. For this to work it is required that you setup ssh key pairs between the two servers. Check out this link from Digital Ocean on setting up ssh key pairs


Sample node added to the resources.xml file

  <node name="servername" description="Dev MySQL" tags="" hostname="servername" osArch="amd64" osFamily="unix" osName="Linux" osVersion="2.6.32-504.8.1.el6.x86_64" username="userAccount"/>

After adding the node to rundeck you must restart the service for the node to be recognized.

service rundeckd restart
