My linux cluster system has SGE installed. I installed WebMO enterprise under a user. What should I put in the Queue name on the WebMO setup? Outside the WebMO, I put 'all.q' as the queue name. (-q all.q) However, when in batch queue system setup I put 'all.q' for the Queue, it does not seem to be recognized correctly.

It appears that you have done things correctly. What makes you say that "it does not seem to be recognized correctly?"

I also have a list of suggested SGE tweaks to make it play nice with WebMO. Most these have already been incorporated into the WebMO Enterprise setup instructions, but here they are in one place:

# visudo

add "SGE_ROOT" to env_keep

# Add "smp" parallel enviroment and correct like below
# This is needed for true SMP parallel jobs (e.g. requesting NCPUs on 1 node)
# Note that the start_proc_args script IS needed (even though we are not doing MPI)
# in order to translate the pe_hostfile into a WebMO-readable machinefile format

> qconf -ap smp

pe_name smp
slots 9999
user_lists NONE
xuser_lists NONE
start_proc_args /opt/gridengine/mpi/startmpi.sh $pe_hostfile
stop_proc_args /bin/true
allocation_rule $pe_slots
control_slaves TRUE
job_is_first_task FALSE
urgency_slots min

# add "smp" to ALL queques
> qconf -mq all.q

pe_list (add 'smp' to the list of existing ones)

#Add SGE to /etc/services

vi /etc/services; ADD

sge_qmaster 536/tcp #SGE
sge_execd 537/tcp #SGE

Thanks you for your prompt reply. I should have given more details.
When I tried to run a test job, I built the molecule. On the next step, I was asked to select the queues, and there was no 'all.q'. Instead 'server.domain.edu(placeholder1)','server.domain.edu(placeholder2)' and etc. appeared there and I could not go further.
I have no idea what is wrong.

Please make sure you have enabled at least one computational engine for the given queue. (This must be done on a queue-by-queue basis.)

Login as admin and go to the 'Interface Manager'. Select the correct queue at the top (if more than one). Make sure to enable and configure at least one computational engine for each queue.

If that fails to resolve the issue, please let me know what WebMO version you are running.

That was what I missed! The problem got solved. Thanks a lot!

I'm having this same issue and I've followed what you have said in the 'interface manager', and all the queues are enabled for 8 systems but I'm still asked to select queues. I'm running webmo 15.03p using the upgrade.pl script. I've added removed and re-added the machines which haven't changed anything.

Any suggestions? Ed
