Running the TCS on a local Tucson Machine

Developers can run the current TCS installation (/lbt/tcs/current) on any local CentOS machine, without having to build their own version. It can be set up to keep everything local to the machine - no "cluster".


Set the environment variables:

 > export TCSLOCALE=testing
 > export TCSPATH=/lbt/tcs/current

Configure "dummy" ethernet device:
> sudo bash
> echo "DEVICE=dummy0
USERCTL=no" > /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-dummy0
> echo "dummy" > /etc/modules-load.d/dummy.conf
> service network restart

Make sure there is a "dummy" ethernet device configured with address and broadcast :
 > /sbin/ifconfig
 dummy0    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 96:EB:25:BF:FC:F6  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::94eb:25ff:febf:fcf6/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING NOARP  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:12336 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:1275633 (1.2 MiB)

Check that the user has access to TCS housekeeping files (these need to be writeable by the user running TCS):

 > ll /var/tmp
 -rw-r--r--.  1 ksummers domain users   24 Aug 11 10:12 rm580f-1procs.conf
 -rw-r--r--.  1 ksummers domain users 2793 Aug 11 10:12 rpc_10.0.0.1.conf

Make sure the firewall is off for iptables :
 login as root
 > chkconfig iptables off
 > chkconfig ip6tables off
 > /etc/init.d/ip6tables stop


  • when you use the testing locale, the events and syslog go to /data//tcs/LSS (see LSS_EVENT_LOG_PATH in the configuration)
  • to see the configuration after you have set up the LOCALE, type netconfig -c
