    Hi Tessa,

    The cluster manager and compute server are not available with an academic license. With an academic license, you can only construct a pool of workers \(\texttt{grb_rs --worker}\) which do not support the batch mode.

    However, you can use \(\texttt{slurm}\) and/or \(\texttt{screen}\) to work with a batch equivalent.

    Best regards,
    Jaromił

    Hi Jaromił.

    Just to make sure I have got you correctly: With an academic license, I can not submit a distributed MIP as a batch (lsf) using the batch solve command?

    Kind regards

    Tessa

    Hey.

    One last question:

    However, you can use slurm and/or screen to work with a batch equivalent.

    What difference would using slurm instead of lsf make?

    I have not used lsf make so I cannot tell.

    Ahh, ok. Basically, however, the batch solve command does not work with any job scheduling system for Linux clusters, regardless of which one it is.

    Yes, that's correct.

    Thank you! Before, I thought you were going to tell me that another job scheduling system would be better for this, which kind of confused me. But now it's clear.
