Parallel Installation
 
Hello,
I have to test the OF-parallel possibility between some single PC.
I wanted a confirmation: I heard that OF should be installed on each PC.
In comparison Fluent just have to be installed on the master, the other PC have access to the installation's path via NFS.
So Do I have to install OF on each PC?
:)
Thanks for the support

It sounds like the information you got was a bit confused.
While it is true that the OpenFOAM installation should be accessible from each machine (eg, via an NFS-mount), it would be really annoying (and error-prone) to actually install it on evey compute node.

yes right I had some doubts, that's why I asked confirmation.
Ok then I have to proceed like with Fluent, eg: OF installation on the master, and mounting the right path to all the nodes (with NFS)
Thank you
