Connect from Microsoft R Client to Microsoft R server for linux RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a problem, maybe someone here will be able to help.


    I have a linux machine, where I have recently installed Microsoft R Server (en_microsoft_r_server_for_linux_x64)

    and it looks like working.

    I also have a windows laptop with Microsoft R Client installed.

    Now I would like to connect to R server(linux) from my R Client (windows).

    what are the steps, I need to take, how should I define compute context for R server on linux.

    I really tried to find that information but failed.

  • Thanks Andrey,

    But it's not what I'm looking for.

    Question is: what needs to be done to use R Server installed on Linux as real server.

    How should I define compute context in my  R client to be able to connect to R Linux server.

    I see there are number of possibilites,ie:


    nonne of above lets connect to Linux server.

    So I need help to find a way to declare compute context to connect to Linux Server.

     Any ideas?

  • Hi Lukxx,

    There is no Linux compute context for R Server Linux. I would suggest you try the latest R Client 3.3.2, with latest R Server 9.0. The remote execution functions will enable you to connect to the R Server in Linux to offload the computing. Please refer to this document for detail description of the remote execution functions: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-r/operationalize/remote-execution?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396 .
