ganeti-rapi - ganeti remote API daemon
ganeti-rapi [ -d ] [ -f ] [ --no-ssl ] [ -K SSL_KEY_FILE ] [ -C
ganeti-rapi is the daemon providing a remote API for Ganeti clusters.
It is automatically started on the master node, and by default it uses
SSL encryption. This can be disabled by passing the --no-ssl option, or
alternatively the certificate used can be changed via the -C option and
the key via the -K option.
The daemon will listen to the "ganeti-rapi" tcp port, as listed in the
system services database, or to port 5080 by default.
See the Ganeti remote API documentation for further information.
Requests are logged to /var/log/ganeti/rapi-daemon.log, in the same
format as for the node and master daemon.
All query operations are allowed without authentication. Only the
modification operations require authentication, in the form of basic
The users and their rights are defined in a file named rapi_users,
located in the /var/ganeti directory. The users should be listed one
per line, in the following format:
username password options
Currently the options field should equal the string write in order to
actually give write permission for the given users. Example:
rclient secret write
The first user (rclient) will have read-write rights, whereas the
second user does only have read (query) rights, and as such is no
different than not using authentication at all.
