A thousand apologies for the issue. We recently had to update our node dependency because 12 is not getting security updates anymore.

The issue has been resolved and the documentation has been updated. It will read

There is a new package you will install (note the versions here are 2.0.1).

wget -O /tmp/ondemand-release-web_2.0.1_all.deb
sudo apt install /tmp/ondemand-release-web_2.0.1_all.deb

Oh also Hi and welcome! Sorry your very first topic is an issue you’re having!

NP. Thanks for the quick reply.

Now the install is completed (basic)
Apache is up, when I go to server URL, I see apache default page…
How can I check if ondemand process is running?
Or I am missing some steps…

On Ubuntu you’ll have to configure the servername in /etc/ood/config/ood_portal.yml. Setting up authentic should be your next step after that.

OK. the server url now redirect me to

500 Internal Server Error

Might be time to setup the authentication.

This is the where I need help.

I have a small cluster running Bright Managemet software 8.2 with local accounts. Ideally, I would like Ondeman user to autheticate to Bright directly to allow single-signon. Is this possible?

From NVIDIA? If so, a quick read of the docs says they’re LDAP accounts so you may be able to use ondemand-dex to tie into your LDAP. Won’t be single sign on, but you’ll have the same email & passwords.
