We are testing parallel tool box to run on one of our machine and we are getting the following merror message
Error using parpool (line 104)
Failed to start a parallel pool. (For information in addition to the causing error, validate the
profile 'local' in the Cluster Profile Manager.)
Error in parallel.internal.ui.PoolHelper.startPool (line 11)
Caused by:
Error using parallel.internal.pool.InteractiveClient>iThrowWithCause (line 666)
Failed to start pool.
Error using parallel.Cluster/createCommunicatingJob (line 95)

Looks like the permissions in that directory are not correct or have been corrupted.
The easiest thing to try is exiting MATLAB, then rename/delete the "local_cluster_jobs" folder, then restart MATLAB.
