Changes in BeeOND Setup for BeeGFS 7.2.7 and 7.3.1

With the now mandatory setting of a connAuthFile for BeeGFS there has been some impact on BeeOND. Now BeeOND needs something like this as well. One way of solving the problem is to create a subdiretory beeond in /etc/beegfs.
mkdir -p /etc/beegfs/beeond
Cd into the directory and create configuration files for the BeeGFS Services and a authentication file.
cd /etc/beegfs/beeond
vi AuthFile
for i in mgmtd meta storage helperd client; do echo "connAuthFile = /etc/beegfs/beeond/AuthFile" > beegfs-${i}.conf; done

Because of a bug in the beeond code you must add the AuthFile to /etc/beegfs/beegfs-meta.conf and /etc/beegfs/beegfs-storage.conf configuration as well. You can then start BeeOND with this command:
beeond start -n nodefile -c /BeeGFS/beeond -d /media/beeond -f /etc/beegfs/beeond
I hope this helps.
