Implement per the following assumption/desired behavior
Assumption: Cross-ESX multi-tenancy works on shared datastores only
However the symlink doesn't seem to persist. so every time the host is restarted auth-db isn't found and _DEFAULT is used.
I tried the following to restart fresh:
But the automatically created symlink still doesn't persist after reboot.
A workaround would be to add 'vmdkops_admin config init --datastore "shared-DS"' in the startup script but it doesn't seem like a long term solution.
Any idea on how to make it persistent?
Meanwhile, you can refer to KB2043564 and if you are on ESXi 5.1/5.5/6.x add the following to
Please validate that the code works in your case before rebooting :-)
It does work fine, thanks for looking into it! :)
My concern with this is that:
Yes, it is by design - when there is no DB we fail back on "default everything. no security".
I see your point , a config issue (e.g the one described above) can lead to unpleasant consequences.
So when the config is inited (or removed) we'll auto-update local.sh.
Does it address the concerns ? We can have a quick teleconf to chat if you want to, this is an experimental feature and we are interested in learning about the way people would prefer to use it ...
