Spot Event Plugins - Deadline Connectivity Configuration¶
When configuring the Spot Event Plugin, it is essential to determine how you are going to configure the Spot Workers to connect to the Deadline Repository.
You can configure Deadline in one of two major ways:
Configure Deadline at AMI Creation
You can manually configure the connection to the Deadline Repository when initially creating the AMI.This can be done either when you run the Deadline installer, or by modifying the
Configure Deadline at Instance Launch
You can run shell scripts when the instance starts by using the Spot Fleet Request’s User data.Using this script, you can modify the
deadline.iniconfiguration file of the instance so it can connect.
User Data Example¶
