10.4.5. Converting from Staging to INI
If you currently use the Staging installation method and wish to convert
to using INI files, use the following procedure.
Create the text file
on each node. They will normally all be the same.
sudo mkdir /etc/tungsten
sudo chown -R tungsten: /etc/tungsten
chmod 700 /etc/tungsten
chmod 600 /etc/tungsten/tungsten.ini
Each section in the INI file replaces a single tpm
configure call. The section name inside of [square brackets]
is used as the service name. In the case of the [defaults] section,
this will act like the tpm configure defaults
command. The property names in the INI file are the same as what is
used on the command line. Simply remove the leading -- characters and
add it to the proper section.
For example, to seed the
tungsten.ini file, use
the output of tpm reverse:
tpm reverse > /etc/tungsten/tungsten.ini
Edit the new ini file and clean it up as per the rules above. For
example, using vim:
:%s/tools\/^tpm configure /[/g
In the above example, you MUST manually add the trailing square
bracket ] to the end of the defaults tag and to the end of every
service name section. Just search for the opening square bracket [
and make sure there is a matching closing square bracket for every

On each node, change to the extracted directory and execute the
This will read the
tungsten.ini file and apply
the settings. The tpm command will identify what
services likely need to be restarted and will just restart those. You
can manually restart the desired services if you are unsure if the new
configuration has been applied.
