This guide covers consumer client commands for managing Pulp Nodes in the Pulp Platform. For an overview, tips, and, troubleshooting, please visit the Pulp Nodes Concepts Guide.
The root level
node section contains the following features.
$ pulp-consumer node --help Usage: pulp-consumer [SUB_SECTION, ..] COMMAND Description: pulp nodes related commands Available Commands: activate - activate a consumer as a child node bind - bind this node to a repository deactivate - deactivate a child node unbind - remove the binding between this node and a repository
A Pulp server that is registered as a consumer to another Pulp server can be
designated as a child node. Once activated on the parent server,
the consumer is recognized as a child node of the parent and can be managed using
To activate a consumer as a child node, use the
node activate command. More information
on node-level synchronization strategies can be found here.
$ pulp-consumer node activate --help Command: activate Description: activate a consumer as a child node Available Arguments: --strategy - synchronization strategy (mirror|additive) default is additive
A child node may be deactivated using the
node deactivate command. Once deactivated, the
node may no longer be managed using
$ pulp-consumer node deactivate --help Command: deactivate Description: deactivate a child node
Consumer un-registration will automatically deactivate the node.
node bind command is used to associate a child node with a repository on the parent. This
association determines which repositories may be synchronized to child nodes. The strategy specified
here overrides the default strategy specified when the repository was enabled. More information on
repository-level synchronization strategies can be found here.
$ pulp-consumer node bind --help Command: bind Description: bind this node to a repository Available Arguments: --repo-id - (required) unique identifier; only alphanumeric, -, and _ allowed --strategy - synchronization strategy (mirror|additive) default is additive
node unbind command may be used to remove the association between a child node and
a repository. Once the association is removed, the specified repository can no longer be
be synchronized to the child node.
$ pulp-consumer node unbind --help Command: unbind Description: remove the binding between this node and a repository Available Arguments: --repo-id - (required) unique identifier; only alphanumeric, -, and _ allowed
Only activated nodes and enabled repositories may be specified.
The pulp-consumer command line client must be executed with enough permissions
to write system-level configuration and credential files. If permission errors are
encountered, you may need
