# 3. Testing a Standalone Cluster configuration

After the creation and configuration of nodes has been complete, everything should work. Here is a test for every cluster type to confirm this.

  1. Create a file called simplejobscript.sh, and copy this into it:

    #!/bin/bash -l
    echo "Starting running on host $HOSTNAME"
    sleep 30
    echo "Finished running - goodbye from $HOSTNAME"

    This is just a simple script that sends some messages and sleeps for 30 seconds

  2. Run the script with sbatch simplejobscript.sh.

  3. The job should start and complete without issues.
