Hi ,

While giving run from Ansys Eletronic desktop rsm tool getting below error. Suspecting some configuration needs to be done on pbs side.

PBS_error

The configuration has to be done on the Application side. Please check the RSM + PBS Pro guides.

Hi Adarsh,
I am trying to configure Ansys Eletorics rsm . While starting the ansoft rsm service getting the below error.
My job scheduler is Pbspro

[Error] Error opening server name file “/var/spool/torque/server_name” for reading. Verify that the file exists and is readable. If the TORQUEHOME directory is not the default (/var/spool/torque), then set the ANSOFT_TORQUEHOME environment variable to the pathname of the TORQUEHOME directory.

Hi prebinta,

Please note PBS Pro OSS is not torque:

/var/spool/pbs would be $PBS_HOME by default
/opt/pbs would be $PBS_EXEC by default

You can update those variables to point it to PBS Pro OSS.

In the RSM’s cluster configuration, you should see PBS Pro in the drop-down (against the Type of Cluster).
There is ClusterJobs.py , you might need to update that file, please check 6.3.2.1. Submit Command
of the RSM User guide.

Hi Adarsh,

I added the environment variable as ANSOFT_PBS_VARIANT=“pbspro”

Afterwards it took PBS Pro as job scheduler.
