Thank you so much for your quick resplies, it is much appreciated. Im
sorry for my late response, but I havent been able to check the thread
nor did I except such quick response!
I just managed to build a new version of Slurm version 19.05 with PMIX
v3.1. It seems to work without error when starting a MPI-program with
the command srun.
I do though have some additional questions.
1. Prior to the installation of Slurm version 19.05 I tried to remove
the former installation of Slurm via the package tool in Ubuntu
(apt), but all of the files or dependencies have not been removed.
1. I cannot start the services (slurmctld and slurmd) via
systemctl. The error stated by systemctl is
2. For slurmd-service:
"slurmd.service: Failed with result 'protocol
Failed to start LSB: slurm daemon management"
3. For slurmctld.service:
"systemd: Starting LSB: slurm daemon management...
slurmctld: Not starting slurmctld
slurmctld: slurm.conf was not found in /etc/slurm-llnl
lurmctld: Please follow the instructions in
systemd: slurmctld.service: Can't open PID file
/var/run/slurm-llnl/slurmctld.pid (yet?) after start: No such
file or directo
systemd: slurmctld.service: Failed with result 'protocol'.
systemd: Failed to start LSB: slurm daemon management."
4. So why is the folder /var/run/slurm-llnl/ searched? I must have
missed out on changing the /<sysconfdir>/ during configuration.
5. However I manage to start both of the services manually from the
build dir (<buidlDir>/src/slurmd/slurmd/ and
@John Hearns: I am not currently running any cluster or HPC software. I
am testing the Slurm installation on a single node (a notebook for the
moment). I dont plan on installing any additional software as of now,
but I am interested in knowing what works and what works even better :)
