I am trying to install cryoSPARC on our cluster (Centos 7.2, SLURM). As I have read the instructions I have gathered that for security reasons I must install the master once per user which as I understand it is the recommended way to set it up post v2.0. In the thread (Multi user installation?) you state that the master process is the only one that needs to connect to the license server. But in the cluster installation instructions (https://cryosparc.com/docs/reference/install/) it is stated that I need to state a license. Is this only for installation purposes? i.e. the license that will be used is the one of the individual user anyway?
We also can not have the master process running indefinitely, so my other concern is wether or not the workers require a running master once the worker process has been started through SLURM? Or can the master be shut down and then reconnect to the worker-process once that job has finished?
