linchpin upΒΆ

Once a PinFile, topology, and optional layout are in place, provisioning can happen. Performing the command linchpin up should provision the resources and inventory files based upon the topology_name value. In this case, is dummy_cluster.

$ linchpin up
target: dummy_cluster, action: up
Action 'up' on Target 'dummy_cluster' is complete

Target              Run ID  uHash       Exit Code
dummy_cluster       70      0446                0

As you can see, the generated inventory file has the right data. This can be used in many ways, which will be covered elsewhere in the documentation.

$ cat inventories/dummy_cluster-0446.inventory


To verify resources with the dummy cluster, check /tmp/dummy.hosts

$ cat /tmp/dummy.hosts
