rocks-openmpi and gridengine in 5.4.3

it is well know that rocks-openmpi come with hpc roll in rocksclusters (5.4.3 current) did not compiled with-sge.

  • /opt/openmpi/bin/ompi_info|grep gridengine
  • return nothing

(this bugs was fix by rocks’s developer the new rpm is here )

    • As an experiment, I download the latest rocks source under /export/rocks/install
      • cd rocks-5.4.3/src/roll/hpc
      • make roll
      • it generate hpc-5.4.3-0.x86_64.disk1.iso
      • mount -o loop `pwd`/hpc-5.4.3-0.x86_64.disk1.iso /mnt
      • cd /mnt/hpc/5.4.3/x86_64/RedHat/RPMS
      • rpm -e rocks-openmpi
      • rpm -iUv rocks-openmpi-1.4.3-1.x86_64.rpm
      • /opt/openmpi/bin/ompi_info|grep gridengine
        • MCA ras: gridengine (MCA v2.0 API v2.0 Component v1.4.3
      • for the new distro
        • cd /export/rocks/install
        • rocks disable roll hpc
        • rocks remove roll hpc
        • rocks add roll /export/rocks/install/rocks-5.4.3/src/roll/hpc/hpc…….iso
        • rocks enable roll hpc
        • rocks create distro
      • re-install the compute-0-0
        • insert-ethers –remove compute-0-0
        • insert-ethers
        • pick compute
        • pxe boot the compute-0-0

    now there is version openmpi-1.4.4 to work with

    In fact Centos come with openmpi-1.4-gcc-x86_64 that does compiled with-sge
    the binary is located at /usr/lib64/openmpi/1.4-gcc/bin

    For openmpi-1.4.4

    • download the openmpi-1.4.4.tar.bz2
    • edit change 1.4.3 to 1.4.4
    • under hpc do make roll
    • follow the steps above to replace the  old hpc roll with the old hpc roll with the new roll  re-install the compute node
    • on the frontend just add the new rocks-openmpi-1.4.4-1.x86_64.rpm 
    • download from this link
