User Accounts

This section identifies how to organize authorized users of the cluster.

Part of the cluster plan is a list of authorized users of the cluster. It is preferable to give each user an account, because account-sharing makes administration less secure. Any user of the cluster must be established with the same Linux UID and GID on every node in the cluster. Central directory services, such as LDAP, AD, and IPA are often used to simplify user maintenance.
