I’ve installed PGICDK 7.1-5 on our compute cluster. I’m trying to understand the motive behind the makelocalrc requirement. Is there a need to run makelocalrc if ALL of the following apply?
- all nodes can see /my/pgi/common/install/directory
- all nodes run RHEL 5
- all nodes have EXACTLY the same architecture? (x86 release on AMD)
- all nodes are on a private trusted network (192.168.x.x)
- all nodes are derived from one install image
If I understand it correctly, in my case, localrc.nodeX should not be any difference from localrc.nodeX+1
If there is a need, can someone flesh out the explanation a bit more?
