Silent Installation for HPC Pack 2016 update 3 with -ClusterName is not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using setup.exe -unattend to silent install the HPC Pack 2016 on the head node. Although I included the -ClusterName:<a Name>, somehow the cluster name stays the NetBIOSName of the head node.

    I found this in the installation chainner log

    03:28:49.587 -     Command arguments : -Unattend -ClusterName:"myclustername" -HeadNode -SSLPfxFilePath:"<some Path>HpcHeadNode.pfx" -SSLPfxFilePassword:******

    at the first line and near the bottom part of the log

    03:01:58.380 -     Installing HpcServer_x64.msi: BOOTSTRAPPER=1 REBOOT=ReallySuppress UNATTEND=1 SSLTHUMBPRINT="xxxxxxxx" MGMTDBCONSTR="*" ... <some installation Dir path> DBATDEFAULTLOCATION=0 SQMENABLE=0 CLUSTERNAME=HEAD-NODE CLUSTERCONNSTR=HEAD-NODE

    My head node has the computer name as 'HEAD-NODE' and it replaced the myclustername which is the one I wanted it to be.Did I miss something ?

  • Hi Bingyu,

    It is by design. For single head node scenario, the cluster name is always the head node netbios name, the 'ClusterName' parameter will not be respected.
