Installing  BioHPC on cluster

  • Install files on head node (or server)
    • A network drive accessible from nodes and servers is required for file sharing. The drive designation should be H. Set up the H: drive on the file server (which may be the same as the web server or head node), export it for IDU. Files will be stored in H\CBSU directory.

    • Copy files/directories from distribution directory network_drive to H:\CBSU

  • Install and configure nodes for BioHPC
    • Copy the install_node directory from the distribution to the head node. Export this directory to the nodes (only required for installation).
    • Edit install_node scripts install.bat, set_perm.bat, install_cygwin.bat and install_java.bat. There are several parameters that need to be set like server names, path to install_node directory.
    • Create local drives on the nodes for local file storage and scratch space. Recommended name is T:, but it can be any local directory or drive, it will mapped to T: as required. This drive (or directory) must be exported with full access rights for IDU in order to use BLAST database propagation tools. Exported share name should be t-drive.
    • Run script install.bat on the nodes. The script can be run via CCS/HPC feature "Run on node". The script must be run as administrator.
    • Run script install_cygwin.bat on the nodes. The script can be run via CCS/HPC feature "Run on node". The script must be run as administrator.
    • Run script install_java.bat on the nodes. The script can be run via CCS/HPC feature "Run on node". The script must be run as administrator.
