PBS Professional

Build and install from source

1. Clone PBS repository from GIT

 mkdir ~/stage
 git clone
 cd pbspro	
 cat INSTALL | more

2. Install the prerequisite packages for building PBS Pro (as root)

yum install -y gcc make rpm-build libtool hwloc-devel \
    libX11-devel libXt-devel libedit-devel libical-devel \
    ncurses-devel perl postgresql-devel python-devel tcl-devel \
    tk-devel swig expat-devel openssl-devel libXext libXft \
    autoconf automake

yum install -y expat libedit postgresql-server python \
    sendmail sudo tcl tk libical	       

3. Generate the configure script and Makefiles.

cd pbspro	

4. Configure the build for your environment.

./configure --prefix=/opt/pbs

5. Build/compile PBS Pro


6. Install PBS pro

sudo make install

7. Configure PBS pro by executing post-install script

sudo /opt/pbs/libexec/pbs_postinstall

8. Edit /etc/pbs.conf to configure the PBS Pro services that should be started. If you are installing PBS Pro on only one system, you should change the value of PBS_START_MOM from zero to one. If you use vi as your editor, you would run:

sudo vi /etc/pbs.conf

9. Some file permissions must be modified to add SUID privilege.

sudo chmod 4755 /opt/pbs/sbin/pbs_iff /opt/pbs/sbin/pbs_rcp

10. Source the PBS profile and start the PBS Pro services

. /etc/profile.d/
sudo systemctl start pbs    
#sudo /etc/init.d/pbs start
