Version informationThis section applies to crmsh 2.0+ only.
crm can be configured using both a system-wide configuration file, and a per-user configuration file. The values set in the user-local file take precedence over the system-wide settings.
The global configuration file is usually installed at /etc/crm/crm.conf, and the user-local configuration file at ~/.config/crm/crm.conf.
Upgrading from crm 1.x to 2.x
The configuration file format and location changed significantly going from crm 1.x to 2.x. If crm cannot find a user-local configuration file when starting up, it will look for an old-style configuration file at ~/.crm.rc. If this file exists, crm will prompt the user asking if the old-style configuration should be automatically converted to a new-style configuration file.
The settings file consists of sections introduced by a [section] header, and followed by name=value pairs.
Leading whitespace is stripped from values.
Values can contain format strings referring to other values in the same section.
Lines starting with # or ; are interpreted as comments.
Values starting with $ are interpreted as environment variable references, and the value will be retrieved from the named environment variable if set.
The example configuration below lists all available options and their default values.
[core] editor = $EDITOR pager = $PAGER user = skill_level = expert sort_elements = yes check_frequency = always check_mode = strict wait = no add_quotes = yes manage_children = ask force = no debug = no ptest = ptest, crm_simulate dotty = dotty dot = dot [path] sharedir = /usr/share/crmsh cache = /var/cache/crm crm_config = /var/lib/pacemaker/cib crm_daemon_dir = /usr/lib64/pacemaker crm_daemon_user = hacluster ocf_root = /usr/lib/ocf crm_dtd_dir = /usr/share/pacemaker pe_state_dir = /var/lib/pacemaker/pengine heartbeat_dir = /var/lib/heartbeat hb_delnode = /usr/share/heartbeat/hb_delnode nagios_plugins = /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins [color] style = color error = red bold ok = green bold warn = yellow bold info = cyan help_keyword = blue bold underline help_header = normal bold help_topic = yellow bold help_block = cyan keyword = yellow identifier = normal attr_name = cyan attr_value = red resource_reference = green id_reference = green score = magenta ticket = magenta
Loading and saving options
Options are loaded from the global configuration file first, and the user-local file second. This means that the user-local options take precedence over the global configuration.
When changing an option using the options sublevel, the configuration file is written to disk with the new value.
By default, crm will try to syntax highlight its output when connected to a TTY. To disable this behavior, set the configuration value style = none in the [color] section.
The available color choices may depend on the terminal used, but normally include the following:
black blue green cyan red magenta yellow white
Colors can be combined with styles:
bold blink dim reverse underline normal
Setting options from the interactive shell
Options can be set directly from the interactive shell using the options sublevel. These options will be written to the per-user configuration file. Note that changing an option in this way may erase comments added to the configuration file.
