Head node can not discover, or provision Compute Node

    Question

  • For the last two weeks we have tried everything to add a compute node to our cluster with no success.  The problem 'appears' to be a rigorously enforced domain group policy imposed on our cluster machines.  We need the head and compute nodes to on the domain for domain logons and application floating licensing.  Both network topologies 5 and 2 have been tried, but the group policy is imposed on all network, both the enterprise and private.  The security log on the compute node shows logon and port access audit failures from the head node.

    I believe we will need to ask for policy wavers, but we first need to know exactly what the HPC requires in order to function as a cluster, add, configure and maintain compute nodes.
    Does anyone know:

    Which port numbers are required?
    What type of network logons are required.
    If anonymous logons are required, is there anyway to configures things to use a domain account instead?

    Thanks,
