Command: ubos-admin setup-shepherd



To see the supported options, invoke ubos-admin setup-shepherd --help.

This command must be run as root (sudo ubos-admin setup-shepherd).


This command makes it easier to set up a UBOS Shepherd account without using the UBOS Staff. This may be advantageous in some situations such as when running UBOS in a Linux container.

This command:

  • creates the shepherd account if it does not exist yetand gives it system administration capabilities to be invoked via sudo.

  • If one or more public ssh keys are provided, either adds or replaces them on the shepherd account so the user can log in over the network (~shepherd/.ssh/authorized_keys).
