mps-setup

Set up server environment

Syntax

mps-setup [mcrroot]

Description

mps-setup [mcrroot] sets the location of the MATLAB® Runtime and other start up options for server instances.

mps-setup sets the default path to the MATLAB Runtime instances for all server instances that you create. This is equivalent to presetting the mcr-root property in the main_config configuration file of each server instance.

The MATLAB Runtime instance locations that you specify when running mps-setup overwrite any previous values that might be present in the the mcrroot file located in the server_install_location/config/ folder.

Tips

  • Run mps-setup from the server_install_location/script folder. Alternatively, add the script folder to your system PATH environment variable to run mps-setup from any folder on your system.

  • If you run mps-setup without arguments, it searches your system for MATLAB Runtime instances that you may want to use with MATLAB Production Server™.

  • You can specify the path to the MATLAB Runtime as an argument when running mps-setup. This method is ideal for non-interactive (silent) installations.

  • Before creating server instances using the dashboard, you can run mps-setup to specify the default MATLAB Runtime instances to use. This might be useful if you use a script to launch the dashboard. Typically, you must use either the command line interface or the dashboard to manage server instances.

Input Arguments

mcrroot

Path to MATLAB Runtime if running mps-setup in non-interactive or silent mode.

Examples

Run mps-setup non-interactively, by specifying the path to the MATLAB Runtime instance that you want MATLAB Production Server to use.

mps-setup "C:\Program Files\MATLAB\MATLAB Runtime\mcrver"

mcrver is the version of the MATLAB Runtime to use.
