1. Install Software¶
We will use Software Collections to satisfy majority of the following software requirements:
This tutorial is run from the perspective of an account that has sudo access but is not root.
Enable the EPEL and Software Collections repositories:
- CentOS 6/7
sudo yum install epel-release centos-release-scl
- RHEL 6
sudo yum install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-6.noarch.rpm sudo subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-server-rhscl-6-rpms # Repository 'rhel-server-rhscl-6-rpms' is enabled for this system.
- RHEL 7
sudo yum install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm sudo subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms # Repository 'rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms' is enabled for this system.
For RedHat you may also need to enable the Optional channel and attach a subscription providing access to RHSCL to be able to use this repository.
Add Open OnDemand’s repository hosted by the Ohio Supercomputer Center:
- CentOS/RHEL 6
sudo yum install https://yum.osc.edu/ondemand/1.4/ondemand-release-web-1.4-1.el6.noarch.rpm
- CentOS/RHEL 7
sudo yum install https://yum.osc.edu/ondemand/1.4/ondemand-release-web-1.4-1.el7.noarch.rpm
Install OnDemand and all of its dependencies:
sudo yum install ondemand
The nginx RPM used by ondemand will upgrade the nginx RPMs provided by EPEL, if they are installed.
For some older systems, user ids (UID) may start at
500 and not the
1000. If this true for your system, you will need to modify the
/etc/ood/config/nginx_stage.yml configuration file to allow these
users access to OnDemand:
# /etc/ood/config/nginx_stage.yml --- # ... # Minimum user id required to generate per-user NGINX server as the requested # user (default: 1000) # min_uid: 500 # ...
