How can I copy files from my home directory on Mercer to my home directory on Prince?
Standard Linux tools such as scp and rsync can copy files. For example, after you login on Mercer, try:
mercer> scp myfile prince:~/.
I have software installed in my home directory on Mercer. Do I need to re-install it in my home directory on Prince?
The preferred option would be to ask the NYU HPC team to install in a system-wide location, as a module, so that the software is available to all users of Prince.
If the software is not popular and you are the only the user or, for some reason is , it needs to be installed in your home directory, then, yes, you will need to re-install in your Prince home directory.
