1.4. Command Line Administration Tools

In addition to Conga and the system-config-cluster Cluster Administration GUI, command line tools are available for administering the cluster infrastructure and the high-availability service management components. The command line tools are used by the Cluster Administration GUI and init scripts supplied by Red Hat. Table 1.1, “Command Line Tools” summarizes the command line tools.

ccs_tool — Cluster Configuration System Tool Cluster Infrastructure ccs_tool is a program for making online updates to the cluster configuration file. It provides the capability to create and modify cluster infrastructure components (for example, creating a cluster, adding and removing a node). For more information about this tool, refer to the ccs_tool(8) man page.
cman_tool — Cluster Management Tool Cluster Infrastructure cman_tool is a program that manages the CMAN cluster manager. It provides the capability to join a cluster, leave a cluster, kill a node, or change the expected quorum votes of a node in a cluster.
