6.5.6. Synchronizing user.map Data

Continuent Tungsten does not automatically synchronize information contained within the user.map across all the nodes within the cluster. The connector does not identify, track, or update user.map content when it sees password changes.

Instead, the file must be updated by hand, through the @script directive, and synchronized across multiple hosts either manually or by using a script. For example:

#!/bin/bash

for HOST in host1 host2 host3 host4
do
  rsync /opt/continuent/tungsten/tungsten-connector/conf/user.map \
      $HOST:/opt/continuent/tungsten/tungsten-connector/conf/user.map
done

If @script directives, the corresponding scripts must also be included within this synchronization step.

Important

All servers within the cluster must have an identical user.map configuration. Failure to have a synchronized configuration may lead to clients being unable to connect to the connector and database servers.
