That’s great but i was looking for prebuild binary installation steps.

The commercial guides should also apply to prebuilt open source binaries…,-Documentation

I tried installing the pbspro-server rpm but got the following missing dependency:

rpm -i pbspro-server-18.1.2-0.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
perl(Env) is needed by pbspro-server-18.1.2-0.x86_64
perl(Switch) is needed by pbspro-server-18.1.2-0.x86_64

I already installed perl so not sure what these refer to. Any ideas?

[root@Openfoam pbspro_18.1.2.centos7]# perl -v

This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 3 (v5.16.3) built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi
(with 33 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

Could you please try yum install pbspro-server-18.1.2-0.x86_64.rpm

For anyone in the future, here are the minimum steps to get PBS up and running. I tested these on a simple 2-node cluster using Microsoft Azure.

Head node

yum install pbspro-server-18.1.2-0.x86_64.rpm
source /etc/profile.d/
nano /etc/pbs.conf
systemctl restart pbs
qmgr -c “create node Openfoam”
qmgr -c “create node hpc1”

Execution node

yum install -y pbspro-execution-18.1.2-0.x86_64.rpm
nano /etc/pbs.conf
source /etc/profile.d/
systemctl start pbs
nano /var/spool/pbs/mom_priv/config
systemctl restart pbs


Hello All, I attempting to install openpbs-18.1.4 After downloading source and extracting from tarball. I try install with the command ./configure --set-default-server=zeus --enable-syslog --with-scp --set-server-home=/usr/local/spool/pbs --enable-clients
But it says
./configure No such file or directory

Below are the files present in the source . Please advice

You need to run first.
See the following for instructions.

Thanks. I was able to install successfully
