HPC 2012 R2 4.5.5158.0 Unable to run a test Matlab job RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good afternoon all,

    I am a sys admin that just inherited a HPC 2012 R2 cluster from an engineer that recently left and he provided little to no training on the software/capabilities so I have been trying to educate myself on the setup and capabilities. Right now we need the capability to run Matlab jobs in the future on the HPC so I have been putting together documentation on how to do this. But When I try and run a test job on the HPC it fails. I do have the Matlab runtime installed and I also set the variable with-in the job task so it knows where to get the runtime. Below are the logs I think it could be a permissions issue but I have checked all of those and everything appears to be correct. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. Or links to anything that you all would think that could help be educational on HPC for videos etc. Thanks in advance.

  • Hi xander2019,

    As the error indicates, could you double check if the input file '\\hpcvmserver\nvme\Matlab HPC Test\magicsquare' exists or can be accessed from the task on the compute node?

    For HPC Pack docs, you may check this link.
