Re: Problems in starting PCGAMESS under Windows HPC Cluster 2008

Alex Granovsky


actually from within HPC Cluster manager, you still need to start
mpiexec with proper parameters, rather than Firefly itself.
You need to pass the file with the list of allocated nodes
(or just take them from the corresponding environment variable)
to the mpiexec and direct it to run Firefly on these nodes.

Hope this helps,
