I finally got root access to one of the nodes which incredibly helped me to get most of my software installed. But now, for the first time, I got into issues for actually being root :-))
We recommend running this script as a designated SMRT Analysis user (e.g. smrtanalysis) who will own all smrtpipe jobs and daemon processes. Current user is 'root' (primary group: root) Installing as 'root' is not currently supported Switch to the desired user and restart the install. Aborting installation...
I therefore tried to create new user, but I don't have enough privileges to do that:
/usr/local/bin$ sudo adduser smrtanalysis Adding user `smrtanalysis' ... Adding new group `smrtanalysis' (1001) ... Adding new user `smrtanalysis' (1001) with group `smrtanalysis' ... Creating home directory `/home/smrtanalysis' ... Stopped: Couldn't create home directory `/home/smrtanalysis': Permission denied. Removing directory `/home/smrtanalysis' ... Removing user `smrtanalysis' ... Removing group `smrtanalysis' ... groupdel: group 'smrtanalysis' does not exist adduser: `groupdel smrtanalysis' returned error code 6. Exiting.
Can I somehow use my own user - which is root - to install this software? How?
