Setting a Service Password for Including a Computer in a Cluster
If you want to control who is able to include a specific service node or cluster controller
in a cluster, you can create a password called a service password for the computer.
Note: A service password can be stored in a user’s keychain.
To set or change a service password
On the computer designated as the service node or cluster controller, open Compressor
and choose Apple Qmaster > Share This Computer.
Do one of the following:
• To require a password: Select Require Password.
• To change an existing password: Click Change Password.
The password dialog opens.
Enter and verify a password, then click OK.
Apple Qmaster and Distributed Processing
Click OK in the Apple Qmaster Sharing window to apply this change.
If you are making changes to existing settings and this computer is already
providing processing services, clicking OK immediately resets this computer’s services. If
this computer is also the cluster controller, any current jobs are terminated.
