Running jobs in Lifecycle Manager

Launch and monitor install, configure, upgrade, and import jobs from the Clusters workspace of Lifecycle Manager.

opscenterd.conf

The location of the opscenterd.conf file depends on the type of installation:
  • Package installations: /etc/opscenter/opscenterd.conf
  • Tarball installations: install_location/conf/opscenterd.conf

Launch and monitor install, configure, upgrade, and import jobs for DSE clusters from the Clusters workspace of Lifecycle Manager.

After Lifecycle Manager (LCM) successfully creates a cluster during an install job, LCM automatically adds the cluster to the OpsCenter workspace for monitoring and management.

Importing an unmanaged cluster is also tracked in the Jobs summary and details.

Lifecycle Manager runs jobs concurrently for different clusters; however, jobs for the same cluster execute sequentially and remain in the pending state while other jobs are currently running.

Supported OS platform check for DSE installs

As of OpsCenter version 6.1.3 and later, LCM automatically performs an OS supported platform check for the version of DSE being installed. Success or failures are logged and are also visible when drilling into the Job Details:

The OS platform check can be disabled at your own risk by setting the disable_platform_check option to True in the [lifecycle_manager] section of the OpsCenter configuration file, opscenterd.conf.
