This document provides an overview of the changes made in a minor release of Moab Adaptive HPC Suite. A minor release includes significant new functionality and may break compatibility with previous versions.
Moab Adaptive HPC requires the following software versions:
- Adaptive HPC Suite 6.1 or 6.0.5
- Moab 6.1 or 6.0.5
- Torque 2.5.6
- Documentation now describes managing multiple (more than two) OSes.
- SMHPC tools can force a recache of nodes.
- Create active directory user script now adds the user to the configured HPC users group automatically (HPCUsers by default).
- Job failure information is now more descriptive and no longer tells the user to look in the logs for most failure reasons.
- The os.switch.pl script allows dual boot configuration with xCAT.
- MSMHPC Manater now allows you to change the secured service port from the default.
- Secured and unsecured service ports can be enabled or disabled. The firewall ports will not be opened for them if both are disabled.
- The import.node.xml.pl script allows you to deploy a large number of nodes by enabling the ability to consume nodes.xml files direclty from Linux.
- The initial configuration file saves by default. It is not necessary to save the configuration the first time MSMHPC is installed.
- The installer now uses the DNS host name for the spool share instead of the IP address of the first network adapter on the system.
- The MSMHPC web service now supports SSL for communication with the Linux head node. Configuration is explained in the documentation.
- MSMHPC service no longer times out on the first restart in the MSMHPC Manger.
- The MSMHPC cache service log file no longer contains warnings when a node is deleted.
- Moab immediately shows a Removed state when jobs are canceled in Windows.
- Documentation is now clearer on configuring the domain between env.hpc and the moab.cfg files.
- To upgrade from MSMHPC 6.0.1, uninstall it, then install the newest version. Open the MSMHPC Manager, save the configuration, and restart the service. Your previous configuration should be preserved.
