Installing Intel Compiler on a compute node

The Compute Nodes of a HPC are often on a private network and may not have access to the internet and they are often very lean. How do we compile the Intel Compiler on the compute node?

After untaring the Intel Compiler, and running and registering the serial number, you will notice that there will be a missing essential prequiste. How to know what is the missing important prequiste?

Go to the intel installation log file /tmp/intel.pset.root........, you can see in the log file "missing g++". To install g++, do the following:

# yum install gcc-c++

Problem solved!
