|Managing Nodes and Shares|
|Name||A description of the node.||Headquarters|
|Host||The node computer's hostname or IP address, along with a port
and path. The port field represents the port on which the node
service is running. The default is 9092. The path field is an
advanced feature used for URL Proxy operations. In nearly all cases,
you may leave this field blank.
Note: When adding a local node multiple times, you must ensure each node uses localhost as the host.
|In this example, Shares and Enterprise Server are installed on the same computer. That means our hostname is localhost and our node service port is HTTPS 9092. If the node is on a remote host, use the IP address or resolvable hostname.|
|API Username||The node API username that you created when you set up Aspera Enterprise Server on the node machine. This user is kept in the redis database for authentication between the Shares application and the node service.||node-admin|
|API Password||The node API password that you created when you set up Enterprise Server on the node machine.||s3cur3_p433|
To encrypt the connection to the node using SSL, select this check box. Although the node is configured to use an Aspera pre-installed and self-signed certificate (/opt/aspera/etc/ aspera_server_cert.pem), you can use your own certificate. To generate a new certificate, see the Setting UP SSL for Node topic in the IBM Aspera Enterprise Server Admin Guide.
Note: After generating a new certificate, you must create a cert.pem file that contains the private key and the certificate. To do so, copy and paste the entire body of the key and cert files into a single text file. Then save the file as filename_cert.pem.
|Enabled, by default.|
|Verify SSL Certificate||To verify the SSL certificate, select this check box.||Enabled, by default.|
|Timeout||Sets the number of seconds Shares will wait for this node to respond to a request.||30, by default|
|Open Timeout||Sets the number of seconds Shares will wait for the connection to this node to open.||10, by default|
|Bytes free - warn||Issues a warning message when the node has equal to or less than a specified number of storage bytes free. You can enter the number as G, MB, terrabytes, and bytes.||50G|
|Percent free - warn||Issues a warning message when the node has equal to or less than a specified percent of its storage free.||25%|
|Bytes free - error||Issues an error message when the node has equal to or less than a specified number of storage bytes free. You can input the number as G, MB, terrabytes, and bytes.||10G|
|Percent free - error||Issues an error message when the node has equal to or less than a specified percent of its storage free..||10%|
