Run Multiple Versions of Altair Accelerator

Accelerator can be run using a different software version than the software version used by the other Altair Accelerator projects.


Specify the version used by a queue using the -version option. For more information, refer to the Altair Allocator user documentation.

Indirect Taskers

For indirect taskers to work with a Accelerator server that uses a different version, set the environment variable VNC_NEWVERSION to the full path of the root of the installation used by Accelerator.

For example, if the Accelerator server is using the software installed in /tools/RTDA/2019.01/macosx/bin/vovserver, do the following:
setenv VNC_NEWVERSION /tools/RTDA/2019.01
