Can't open matlabpool ?

Asked by Chuck37

It used to work, but now if I type matlabpool(10) it fails. The error (can't paste it, on another network) says:
Failed to open matlabpool. (...) Caused by: Error using distcomp.interactiveclient.start (line 64) Failed to locate and destroy old interactive jobs. Error using parallel.internal.customattr.CustomGetSet/get (line 32) The following error occurred while retrieving the name of process 27062: couldn't find process 27062
Any ideas? I'm dead in the water. Restarting matlab didn't help. This is a network linux machine so I can't just reboot it. I don't think I have use parallel toolbox since the machine was reboot though.

matlabpool close force
cleans up the old jobs and allows you to start it up again.

Worked, thanks! Seems like this should be built in too matlabpool()...

I think that used indiscriminately, it has the capability to clobber legitimate existing pools/jobs so that would be my guess as to why it isn't automated.
