Setting up OOD Server to Talk to Open HPC with PBS Pro Open


Does the OOD server 1.4 or 1.5 need to have the PBS Pro client software installed like a cluster compute node would in order to be able to talk to and launch PBS jobs?



OOD needs to have qsub, qstat,… in OOD’s PATH; whether those apps are installed locally or not doesn’t matter. E.g., our PBS install is in an NFS share so it’s mounted on the OOD node, and added to everyone’s path via a

module load pbspro

in /etc/profile.d/




Thanks for the quick response.
