13. oktober 2009 19:48Hi,
I am trying to setup a compute node with Windows HPC Server 2008. After changing the network topology, I have a compute node that is stuck in the "Provisioning" state.
I have tried the following to get it unstuck:
* Rebooted both the head node and the compute node.
* Tried to use the Cluster Manager UI to cancel the operations. But the "Cancel" option is greyed out.
The problem is that when a node is in this state, it can't even be deleted (which would allow me to start over!).
Any ideas on how to get out of this?
14. oktober 2009 20:27With a little help, I did figure something out that works (although it is now pretty). I uninstalled and reinstalled the HPC pack and things are fine.

usually you don't want to do that :-).
Try set-hpcnodestate -force -state offline -name <nodename> inside the powershell on the headnode.
It might take a reboot to do so but it should work in the current release.
PS: I had the same problem but currently I cannot find the thread that covered this.
