Shared install or replicate to each node? (Y=SHARED/n=replicated)
Check with your grid install team to determine if the computing appliance uses a replicated or shared approach.
Answer the question accordingly and proceed with the computing appliance update. If necessary, respond with YES to confirm the software
update on all of the other computing appliance nodes.
The updated shared libraries will be located in the /install/TKGrid/lib_tkcmp_02 folder (or libN where N is the version number
for the hot fix update).
If necessary, the permissions on the /install/TKGrid folder for all computing appliance nodes may need to be updated for group read/write
- Check with your grid install team to determine if the computing appliance uses a replicated or shared
approach for TKGrid_REP. If so, follow these steps to update the tkmpirsh.sh file in TKGrid_REP deployment.
Edit the TKGrid_REP/tkmpirsh.sh file
- Search for the first reference of “export TKPATH=” in the file, for example you may something like this:
- Before the first “export TKPATH=” line, insert the following line:
- Once the new line has been inserted, save the updated file. It may look something like this:
- If the TKGrid_REP is replicated, push the updated file out to the other nodes in the computing appliance with simcp:
/opt/TKGrid/bin/simcp /opt/TKGrid_REP/tkmpirsh.sh /opt/TKGrid_REP
This completes the installation of hot fix A7E002 on Windows.
