Deploys a MemSQL Ops agent to another host. The deployed agent is automatically set as follower to the local MemSQL Ops agent.

This command requires valid SSH credentials to connect to the host where you plan to deploy the agent. The SSH credentials are stored for future use, and leveraged for other MemSQL Ops operations, such as AGENT-SSH.


usage: memsql-ops agent-deploy [--settings-file SETTINGS_FILE] [--async] -h
                               HOST [-P PORT] [-u USER] [-p [PASSWORD]]
                               [-i IDENTITY_FILE] [--agent-port AGENT_PORT]
                               [--ops-datadir OPS_DATADIR]
                               [--memsql-installs-dir MEMSQL_INSTALLS_DIR]

Deploy a MemSQL Ops agent to a host.

optional arguments:
  --settings-file SETTINGS_FILE
                        A path to a MemSQL Ops settings.conf file. If not set,
                        we will use the file in the same directory as the
                        MemSQL Ops binary.
  --async               If this option is true, we will exit without waiting
                        for the agent to be fully deployed.
  -h HOST, --host HOST  The hostname of the machine to deploy to.
  -P PORT, --port PORT  The SSH port for the machine to deploy to.
  -u USER, --user USER  The user on the remote machine to use. By default we
                        will use the same username as the user running this
  -p [PASSWORD], --password [PASSWORD]
                        Password for the user on the remote machine. Leave
                        blank to read the MEMSQL_PASSWORD environment
                        variable, or have a password prompt if MEMSQL_PASSWORD
                        is not set.
  -i IDENTITY_FILE, --identity-file IDENTITY_FILE
                        Path to a private key file for logging into the remote
  --agent-port AGENT_PORT
                        The port on which we will run the newly-deployed
  --ops-datadir OPS_DATADIR
                        A directory to use as the agent's data directory. The
                        agent will put log files and so forth in this
                        directory. By default, we will use the agent's install
  --memsql-installs-dir MEMSQL_INSTALLS_DIR
                        A directory that we will install MemSQL nodes in. By
                        default, we will use the agent's data directory (see
                        --ops-datadir above).
  --allow-no-sudo       Do not throw an error if we cannot use sudo on the
                        remote machine.
