or as a service:
> grb_rs install
> grb_rs start
While those options are very similar, there are some important differences to consider.
License file location
In case your license file is not in one of the default locations and you use the environment variable
GRB_LICENSE_FILE to point to the file, the service
grb_rs might not be able to read this variable. This is due to different environment settings for services.
We recommend placing the license in the default location for your platform:
Log file location
Other environment settings
When installing Remote Services as a service (using either
grb_rs start or
install), the path to
grb_rs is embedded into the service configuration. Thus, the usual concerns about setting the
GUROBI_SERVER_HOME environment variable do not apply.
This is relevant when running two versions of Gurobi Compute Server on the same machine. This can occur when switching Gurobi versions, where it is desirable for both services to start automatically during the changeover period.
