Subject EC2 cluster setup, user account question...
Date Fri, 19 Feb 2010 08:32:41 GMT
Hi All,
this is more of a logistical question...

setting up a small Hbase cluster (5-10 nodes) on EC2.  Wondering if I
should just setup Hadoop as ROOT user or create another user account
(say, hadoop).

I do understand and follow the convention that ROOT user is for admin
only and not running programs as ROOT.

But creating another user involves running through extra steps on all machines
   - user creation
   - password
   - adding to SUDOers
   - ssh-key setup
   - ..etc

Is there an easy to way to automate this?  any EC2 specific tricks?

Any one has any thoughts one way or another?
