I can't launch remote jobs from Windows to Linux. I get an error like:

FATAL: No usable mmshare found on remote-hostname

What is wrong?

Here are some things to double check:

  1. Make sure the requisite Schrodinger applications have been installed on the remote Linux machine, at the path given by the schrodinger: line for the Linux host in your schrodinger.hosts file on Windows.
  2. Make sure you have properly configured passwordless ssh on the Windows machine, according to the instructions in the Installation Guide. The Remote Login Configuration tool (SchrodingerPlinkWizard prior to Suite 2011) on the Start menu will help you with this configuration task.

You can use the Diagnostics tool (also on the Start menu) or the installation_check application in your software distribution to check access to the remote hosts - see the instructions in the Installation Guide.
