Edit Cluster Details

Update the staging location and the central repository server address details.

To edit a cluster, you must first log out of it.
If you wish to change the staging folder location for your running jobs and move your Access Desktop setup from local to central repository server, follow the steps below:
  1. Open the Windows system tray.
  2. Double-click the Access Desktop icon .
  3. Click .
  4. Select Clusters.
    The Clusters dialog box is displayed.
  5. If you have more than one cluster added, select the cluster that you wish to modify.
    Note: If only one cluster is added and then the cluster information is displayed as a default.
  6. Click Logout.
    The user login, Stage location and Central Repository server address fields are enabled to edit.

  7. For User name, previously specified username is displayed.
    You may continue with the user if it is still valid or enter the new valid username to login.
  8. Choose one of the following options:
    • Select Password from the drop down box and enter your password.
    • Select SSH Key from the drop down menu and import the RSA private SSH key file.
  9. Optional: If you have chosen to enter your password, you may enable Skip this next time, so that you do not have to enter your credentials again.
    Note: To make sure that Skip this next time works, ssh login using keys should work for your account on login node.

    An SSH key is generated and stored allowing you to login to the cluster without having to enter your credentials.

The below steps are specific to editing a cluster added using SSH:

  1. Enter the location on the PBS Server where job files will be staged when a job is running.
  2. Choose one of the following options:
    • If you have chosen to store your application definitions in a central repository rather than on your workstation, enter the URL for accessing the central repository in the format https://<HOSTNAME>:4443 where <HOSTNAME> is the hostname of the machine where Access Web is installed.
      Note: If the central repository is being hosted on the PBS Server, then the URL is automatically populated.
    • If you have chosen to store your application definitions locally, then remove the URL.
