MATLAB workers can't access files in network shared folder

38 visualizaciones (últimos 30 días)
My lab has a computer that acts as a parallel server that can be connected via LAN. I work on my laptop (client) and have shared a folder to be accessed by everyone in the local network. From the server, I can access the shared folder by typing the UNC in File Explorer, such as:
\\CLIENTPC\PATH\TO\FOLDER
Let say I am submitting a batch job from the client to server, and there is a function that needs access to the shared folder in the client, for example, savefig, such as:
plot(1:109, randn(1,100)
savefig('\\CLIENTPC\PATH\TO\FOLDER\Figure.mat')
I pass the script name that contains the above code to the batch function, and I expect that workers in the server can generate the figure, then save it directly to the sahred folder, so that I can easily get the saved figure from my laptop. However, the batch job generates an error, stating that the file/folder is not found.
What is the reason for this, and how do I fix this permission denied error? The savefig function is just an example; basically, any functions that involve writing/reading from a shared folder generates an error.
Also, how do I avoid this altogether? I mean, is there a way to obtain a figure generated from the server to the client, like by using load(Job). Because, if I just fetch the workspace variables from the server, I will just get the handle to the figure, not the figure itself (.fig).
Thanks for your help!

You could try using FileStore for this. You'll first need to save your figure to a temporary location on disk, and then you can copy it to the FileStore, a bit like this:
%% On the worker
% Generate a file on the local disk
plot(1:100, randn(1,100));
tempFname = fullfile(tempdir, 'Figure.fig');
savefig(tempFname);
% Copy the file to the FileStore
store = getCurrentFileStore();
copyFileToStore(store, tempFname, "result");
%% On the client
j = batch(); % Run your batch job
wait(j);
store = j.FileStore;
localFile = fullfile(tempdir, 'Figure.fig');
copyFileFromStore(store, "result", localFile);
openfig(localFile)
