I download a pgi workstation package. When I execute ./install,
it ask me to choose local install or network install. If I performed
a local install on one machine (m1), then is it possible for me to
connect to m1 from my desktop to use pgi compiler \
on m1? is it possible for pgi workstation package to perfrom
a network install on a shared file system, for example, a nfs file server,
and then access the compiler on file server from desktop client?

Hi xiezhq,

It's possible but not necessarily advisable. Unless your desktop has the exact same OS, kernel, and GNU installation, using the compilers that were installed on another system may not work properly. Also, a Workstation license is only valid for the system on which the compilers were installed.

Yes, however you need a Server or CDK license in order to run the compiler on multiple systems.

Hope this helps,
Mat

thanks your info.

I am trying to test compiling a scientific software using PGI
(if PGI is OK for our software, then we will purchase a permanent license),
but forget which type of installation I performed yesterday,
local installation or network installation.

How can I generate right trial license key?
If I cannot finish my testing with 15 days, what should I do?

When running the compilers without a license, the compilers should print out instructions on how to do this. If not contact license@pgroup.com.
