I have been trying to get linux_host working in Ondemand and have had to make changes to files in cluster.d - it seems that eventually if you use an existing file as a template such as a working Slurm cluster file and try and change it then Ondemand seems to continue to think its a Slurm cluster and ignores any changes. Also it seems some filenames do not work and the cluster file can be completely ignored. Its a really frustrating issue since it makes it hard to try and get things working if I cannot be sure if its reading the latest version.
Is there some mechanism that would cause this? I got one cluster file working fine with Slurm but trying to add another one to get a linux_host working for VNC has really confused me. The Desktop app by modifying file /etc/ood/config/apps/bc_desktop/test.yml can sometimes display in the dashboard but if I use another name for it and sync the name with the filename in /etc/ood/config/clusters.d it can make the Interactive Apps menu option to disappear in the dashboard. Any advice? Is there a way of resetting the information it remembers?
