The rd-setup command is used to setup the RunDeck software after the distribution has been extracted into its installation directory.
During the first time installation or if the -f flag is set rd-setup will create a new instance of the framework and generate all the configuration files found in $RDECK_BASE/etc.
-h : displays the usage information presented above.
-v : run verbose.
-f : Force re-generation of configuration files
-n : The nodename
-N : The hostname
--key=value : Override the default values during the installation by specifying one or more --key=value combinations.
The following environment variables are assumed during the execution of rd-setup:
JAVA_HOME :Java installation directory
RDECK_BASE : RunDeck framework instance directory
Execute the rd-setup command defining the hostname setting as "adminhost":
rd-setup -n adminhost
Execute the rd-setup command defining the framework hostname as "localhost" and specifies the framework.ssh.keypath value
rd-setup -n localhost --framework.ssh.keypath=/path/to/keyfile
The rd-setup command generates a working configuration from a set of template files found in: $RDECK_BASE/lib/templates/etc. Additionally, initial configuration default values are maintained in rd-defaults.properties but these can be overwridden using --key=value flags.
