zone - a logical object definition in the xCAT database.


zone Attributes: defaultzone, sshbetweennodes, sshkeydir, usercomment, zonename


Logical objects of this type are stored in the xCAT database in one or more tables. Use the following commands to manipulate the objects: mkdef, chdef, lsdef, and rmdef. These commands will take care of knowing which tables the object attributes should be stored in. The attribute list below shows, in parentheses, what tables each attribute is stored in.

zone Attributes:

defaultzone (zone.defaultzone)

If nodes are not assigned to any other zone, they will default to this zone. If value is set to yes or 1.

sshbetweennodes (zone.sshbetweennodes)

Indicates whether passwordless ssh will be setup between the nodes of this zone. Values are yes/1 or no/0. Default is yes.

sshkeydir (zone.sshkeydir)

Directory containing the shared root ssh RSA keys.

usercomment (zone.comments)

Any user-provided notes.

zonename (zone.zonename)

The name of the zone.
