Fixed In Version: openshift-origin-node-util-
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The /etc/sysconfig/watchman file could be created and used as a configuration file for Watchman, however a default file did not exist. The OpenShift Enterprise Administration Guide mentioned this file, which caused confusion when it was missing. This bug fix creates a default /etc/sysconfig/watchman file, and the file now exists as expected.

Description nicholas_schuetz 2014-07-14 21:52:11 UTC
Title: Enabling and Configuring Watchman

Describe the issue:

In the Watchman Environment Variables section the documentation suggests adding any of the variables defined to /etc/sysconfig/watchman. That file does not exist. 

Suggestions for improvement:

Document that the user must create the file and/or have it created as a part of the openshift-origin-node-util package.

For what it's worth we have an update to watchman in OpenShift Enterprise 2.1.4 which will be released in a couple weeks.  That version will ship /etc/sysconfig/watchman.

Comment 3 brice 2014-07-16 01:21:11 UTC
Brenton, sorry, but just to clarify. Are you saying that there was originally no /etc/sysconfig/watchman file, but you could create it when you're modifying your watchman configuration? But now, with 2.1.4, the file already exists?

If this is the case, then there may not be anything to modify here.

Comment 5 Brenton Leanhardt 2014-07-16 11:53:55 UTC
Yes, originally there was no /etc/sysconfig/watchman but you could indeed create it.  One will ship by default as soon as we can get 2.1.4 out the door.

Verified and pass on puddle-2-1-2014-07-15
1) update from GA build to puddle-2-1-2014-07-15. The file is added.
2) install fresh puddle-2-1-2014-07-15. The file is installed.
