Useful Commands / Processes

Re-initialize the Media Database

(From forum post

  • Disable the UpdateMedia daemon
# /usr/pluto/bin/ –disable
  • Login to mysql and remove the database
# mysql -uroot
# drop database pluto_media;
# quit
  • Re-initialize the media database
# cp /usr/pluto/database/media.sqlcvs .
# /usr/pluto/bin/sqlCVS -D pluto_media -r media import
  • Re-start the UpdateMedia daemon
# /usr/pluto/bin/ –enable

Set Root password on MD

Get superuser privs and enter your password:

$ sudo su -

chroot to the MDs environment (XX is the MD#), run passwd and enter your desired root password for this MD.

# chroot /usr/pluto/diskless/XX/
# passwd

You can now ssh, or login, to the MD as root.
