'service hmc start' and proxy servers

  • #11678
    Rob Styles


    My physical cluster is in a restricted network and gets out to the web via a proxy.

    I typically configure the proxy on a per user basis in profiles. To set things up for HDP I made the proxy global by putting it in /etc/profile.d/

    This doesn’t work for the /etc/init.d/hmc as profile settings aren’t loaded for a service. I’ve worked around this in the short term by adding a proxy entry directly in /etc/init.d/hmc.

    Asking in a centos chat it was suggested that standard practice would be to create a /etc/sysconfig/hmc script that is then sourced by /etc/init.d/hmc to allow for local configuration. Would that be worth adding in?
