Then launch the innovus or genus app on the command line using the command innovus or genus respectively.


Cadence will automatically check out an appropriate license for your work, if it can. Licenses are maintained by the ENGR license server (

Interactive Job

Cadence does not have a dedicated interactive app at this time. In the HPRC Portal, use the VNC interactive app.

VNC starts in a terminal. You may need to load a Java module to a launch graphical window, depending on which application you use. I would try it without Java first.

If you do need Java, load one the usual way. For example:

module load Java
