Description Tomas Jelinek 2016-09-23 08:46:09 UTC
We need to have a description of environment variables (/etc/sysconfig/pcsd and others like http_proxy) and config files (/var/lib/pcsd/*) recognized and used by pcsd. This should preferably go to its own manpage not to complicate the pcs manpage which is already huge.

Comment 1 Tomas Jelinek 2016-10-26 13:15:51 UTC
From duplicate bz1318656:

Radek Steiger 2016-03-17 09:06:57 EDT

PCS daemon supports reading several various environmental variables that are usually set via initscript or systemd through /etc/sysconfig/pcsd, but are not documented anywhere at this point.

So far we expose following ones in /etc/sysconfig/pcsd and should mention them in man pages:


Ideally, we should provide a general description of the supported ENV variables without being tied to /etc/sysconfig, because a user might want to set these in other ways (and also other distributions might use different approach than what we do in RHEL).

We might consider other ENV variables that pcsd already understands, but most of them are for internal use only.
