[ECCO] Matlab configuration on compute nodes updated

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We updated the configuration of the Matlab installations on the compute nodes in order to better manage multiple versions. Some users may need to update their existing qsub programs.

In particular, we deleted the default link to Matlab in /usr/local/bin. Thus, simply typing

matlab

no longer finds a valid Matlab installation. Users must now use the module command prior to invoking matlab:

module load matlab
matlab

In qsub scripts, please follow instructions on the "Advanced qsub" page.

This change allows us to better manage multiple Matlab installations, as well as the interaction of Matlab with add-ons (such as knitro). We apologize for any (temporary) inconvenience this may cause.
