[as7] add support for specifying a start script prefix in the plugin configs for AS7 servers
Last modified: 2015-02-01 18:28:00 EST
This allows users to specify a prefix for a start script execution initiated by the Start or Restart operation. The most common use case is needing to run AS7 as a different user than the RHQ Agent, in which case the prefix would be e.g. "sudo -u jboss" to run AS7 as the jboss user.
This should not take too long to implement, as we already have generic support for prefixes in ProcessExecutionUtility.createProcessExecution() in the plugin-api module.
Note, we support this in the as4 and as5 plugins, so we'll need it for feature parity in the as7 plugin.
We should do this for RHQ4.4
Done in master:
Note, if an AS7 instance is running as a different user and/or group than the Agent, we detect this in autodiscovery and prepopulate the 'startScriptPrefix' prop with the appropriate sudo command line.
Verified on Version: 3.1.0.CR1 Build Number: 4bc4270:1b85993
Started EAP6 instance with a different user than the agent (sudo -u skondkar). The instance is detected in autodiscovery and the 'Start Script Prefix' property in 'Inventory->Connection Settings' prepopulated with the value '/usr/bin/nohup /usr/bin/sudo -u skondkar -g skondkar'.
Please refer the attached screenshot.

Did you also then try running the Start and Restart operations and verify that they worked and that the AS7 instance was running as skondkar:skondkar ?
I Started agent with user 'testuser' and EAP6 instance with user 'skondkar'.
The operations start and restart worked and AS7 instance is running as skondkar:skondkar when I inserted below line in /etc/sudoers file:
testuser ALL=(skondkar:skondkar) NOPASSWD: /store/EAP/EAP6/EAP6-ER8/jboss-eap-6.0/bin/standalone.sh
