3.4 Adding a Custom User for a Collector Manager

Sentinel recommends that you use the default Collector Manager username of collectormanager. However, if you have installed multiple remote Collector Managers and you want to identify them separately, you can create new users:

  1. Log in to the server as the user who has access to the installation files for Sentinel.

  2. Open the activemqgroups.properties file.

    This file is located in the /<install_dir>/etc/opt/novell/sentinel/config/ directory.

  3. Add the new Collector Manager user under the cm section, separated by comma. For example:

  4. Save and close the file.

  5. Open the activemqusers.properties file.

    This file is located in the /<install_dir>/etc/opt/novell/sentinel/config/ directory.

  6. Add the password for the user you created in Step 3.

    The password can be any random string. For example:

  7. Save and close the file.

  8. Restart the Sentinel server.
