Script Must Be Run On Manager Node

I have a bro cluster set up (or mostly set up) on CentOS 5.5. I am using svn version 7048. I try to run /usr/local/bro/bin/broctl start and it replies with ERROR: Script must be run on manager node. I saw someone else with this issue who added some things to PATH, which I tried, and it still did not work. Does anyone know what could cause this?


Could you send along the contents of your /usr/local/bro/etc/node.cfg file? That might help us figure out what's going on.


two reasons:

1. you used 'localhost' or somehing in node.cfg.. i've had the best luck
using plain ip addresses.

2. broctl can't find ifconfig - this is often a problem with cron, my
bro crontab looks like

0-59/5 * * * * root /usr/local/bro/bin/broctl cron

I thought I had, I'm sorry. I did get it figured out though, my PATH was set incorrectly and ignored /sbin so it couldn't find ifconfig.
