Configure Cluster Web GUI (hawk)

 The SUSE HA cluster offers a web interface to simplify the configuration. This web interface is optional.

The web interface needs to be configured on one node only. It'll allow to manage the entire cluster (as long as this node is available).

It gets configured the following way

Set User Password

Pick a password by assigning a password to the user hacluster on the cluster node which is chosen.

passwd hacluster

Start Service

Start the hawk service on the same node with the command:

service hawk start

Accessing the Web GUI

The web interface can then be accessed through the URL


The welcome page will look as follows:

hawk login page

Use the account name hacluster and the password assigned in the previous step to log into the web user interface
