Local VCL accounts are contained within the VCL database. The admin account is an example of a local VCL account. Additional local accounts can be added after the backend management node component has been installed by executing the vcld file with the -setup argument:

/usr/local/vcl/bin/vcld -setup

It is safe to run vcld -setup while the normal vcld daemon process is running on a management node. Running vcld -setup will not affect it.

You will see a menu. Enter the number next to the VCL Base Module entry:

[root@mgt-node]# /usr/local/vcl/bin/vcld -setup
