1.  Guidelines

1.1  Location

Software packages should be installed in different locations, depending on the usage:

  • /opt is for "node-local" installs: those that get installed only on the UI, or that can/should be installed on each of the worker nodes (for example, all gLite and GILDA packages, and UJ-build geant4 and root RPMs are installed like that; swift is only on osg-ui)
  • /nfs/osg/app and /nfs/glite/exp_soft are the "shared" install areas respectively for OSG and gLite.
  • /nfs/share is the place for local-only (non-grid) software that must be shared by multiple users, and does not need/cannot be installed on the single nodes.
  • Software used by a single user should possibly be installed inside his home directory.

2.  Installs

2.1  Install STAR-CCM+

STAR-CCM+ uses the FLEXlm license manager, so it needs to contact the license server, which has a fixed IP on the internal UJ network, on two ports:

  • TCP 1999
  • TCP 1026

2.2  Install Fluent

ANSYS Fluent uses a license manager (FluentLM, a version of FLEXlm). It needs to contact the license server, which has a fixed IP on the internal UJ network, on two ports:

  • TCP 7241
  • TCP 1055

You can check in the debug.log on the license server whether these are the correct. See also

The install is taken care completely by the .sh script included in the .tar package. The installed software, v6.3, takes about 330MB. The user only has to configure the environment, for example by adding in his .bash_profile

export PATH="/nfs/share/fluent/Fluent.Inc/bin:$PATH"
export LM_LICENSE_FILE=7241@xx.xx.xx.xx

replacing of course the proper IP of his license server.
