    You can create a central configuration for all Workers in two ways: by using the WranglerView UI, or by manually editing the qbwrk.conf file on the Supervisor. This page discusses both methods.


    The following parameters are only settable locally on the Worker as they determine where the Qube! installation is located, the hostname of the Supervisor, and the filtering field for network communication. They will not have any effect when used in the qbwrk.conf file.

    Configuring via the UI

    The central Worker configuration can be managed through the WranglerView UI from the Supervisor. Using the Workers tab, select one or more machines, <right-click> to get the menu, and choose "Configure on Supervisor"



    This menu item is only enabled when:

    • running the WranglerView on the supervisor host, and
    • the user has the Qube! 'admin' privilege

    The worker configuration UI will be shown.  Make any desired changes. Any values that you edit will have their labels turn green, as in the worker_description field to the right.

    Clicking OK will save the changes to the central worker configuration, at which time the Supervisor will automatically instruct all workers to re-request their configuration from the Supervisor.  No Supervisor or Worker restart is necessary.  Any Workers not currently running will receive the changes when they next start up.

    Configuring Manually

    An administrator can also edit the qbwrk.conf file manually. Here are the steps:

    Create the qbwrk.conf file if it doesn't already exist, on the Supervisor machine in the correct location:

    • Linux & OS X:             /etc/qbwrk.conf
    • Windows Vista and above:   C:\ProgramData\pfx\qube\qbwrk.conf 
    • Windows XP:              C:\Program Files\pfx\qube\qbwrk.conf

    the qbwrk.conf file with a text editor using the file format described on this page.

    Validate the qbwrk.conf file using the qbconfigure command. More details on this page.
    $ qbconfigfile <qbwrk file location>

    Push the settings to the Workers using the qbadmin command
    $ qbadmin worker --reconfigure


    It may take a few minutes to perform this action if the farm is large.
