Register the Cluster Controller

This topic describes how to register a Cluster Controller (CC) with the Cloud Controller (CLC).


  • The Cloud Controller must be properly installed and started.
  • The Cluster Controller service must be properly installed and started.

To register the Cluster Controller service with the Eucalyptus cloud

On the CLC host machine, run the following command:

euserv-register-service -t cluster -h IP -z ZONE SVCINSTANCE


  • SVCINSTANCE is the IP address of the CC you are registering with this CLC.
  • name should be a descriptive name for the zone controlled by the CC. For example: .
  • must be a unique name for the CC service. We recommend that you use the IP address of the machine

For example:

euserv-register-service -t cluster -h -z zone-1 cc-

Copy the security credentials from the CLC to each machine running Cluster Controller services. Run this command on the CLC host machine:

clcadmin-copy-keys -z ZONE HOST

For example:

clcadmin-copy-keys -z zone-1

Repeat the above steps for each Cluster Controller in each zone. Verify that the Cluster Controller service is registered with the following command:

euserv-describe-services SVCINSTANCE

The registered Cluster Controller service is now ready for your cloud.
