As is the case for a local Columbus installation it is possible to check the exact version of Acapella running on the Columbus Plus cluster share via command line.

For a 'local' standard installation of Columbus the command would be:

$ acapella -version

For a Columbus Plus installation Acapella is installed both locally and on the cluster nodes, this is usually configured as a shared directory accessible by all nodes.

In this scenario you need to specify the path to the Acapella installation on the cluster. Example shown below:

$ /columbus_cluster/software/Acapella/Acapella-4.1.3/bin/acapella -version

Example of expected output:

$ /columbus_cluster/software/Acapella/Acapella-4.1.3/bin/acapella -version

You can find the exact path to the Acapella binaries for your Columbus Plus installation.

Navigate to /etc/columbus:

$ cd /etc/columbus

There should be a *.config file in that location. Review the file e.g.

$ cat sge.config

(note the name 'sge.config' might be different on your instance)

The acapella_cmd parameter in this file should give you the exact path to the Acapella binaries for your installation which you would then use in the above command.

$ /path/to/Acapella/Acapella-4.1.3/bin/acapella -version
