Moab Workload Manager

TORQUE/PBS Integration Guide - RM Access Control

Server Configuration

   Using the PBS qmgr command, add the Moab administrator as both a manager and operator.

> qmgr Qmgr: set server managers += <MOABADMIN>@*.<YOURDOMAIN> Qmgr: set server operators += <MOABADMIN>@*.<YOURDOMAIN> Qmgr: quit

   For example:

> qmgr Qmgr: set server managers += [email protected]*.ucsd.edu Qmgr: set operators += [email protected]*.ucsd.edu Qmgr: quit

  If desired, the Moab administrator can be enabled as a manager and operator only on the host on which Moab is running by replacing "*.<YOURDOMAIN>" with "<MOABSERVERHOSTNAME>".

Mom Configuration (optional)

  If direct Moab to pbs_mom communication is required, the mom_priv/config file on each compute node where pbs_mom runs should be set as in the following example:

$restricted *.<YOURDOMAIN>
$clienthost <MOABSERVERHOSTNAME>

  For security purposes, sites may want to run Moab under a non-root user id.  If so, and Moab-pbs_mom communication is required, the mom_priv/config files must be world-readable and contain the line '$restricted *.<YOURDOMAIN>'. (i.e., '$restricted *.uconn.edu')
