Deploy Compte Node with Windows 2016 Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am deploying a cluster HPC 2016 Update 2.
    My cluster is up and running.
    Now, I'm going to create my image for my Compute Node.

    So I manually installed my Compute Node with all the settings I want.
    I captured my image. So far so good.

    Now, I want to deploy my other Compute Nodes with this image and that's where I have a problem.
    My image WIM deploys very well but I remain stuck at the next task ie integration in the field.

    Are there any particular parameters to integrate into HPC 2016 to be able to deploy Compute Nodes under Windows 2016 Server? or parameters to integrate on my image?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hello,

    Could you collect the following to help us better understand the issue you met?

    1. On cluster manager, Configuration->Node Templates, Right click the compute node template and export it.

    2. On cluster manager, Resource Management, select one node which stuck in deploying, click "Provisioning log" and take a screenshot of the provisioning messages.

    3. Get the latest 3 HpcDeployment_<index>.bin and HpcManagement_AA_<index>.bin log files with latest 3 indexes separately in C:\Program Files\Microsoft HPC Pack 2016\Data\LogFiles\Management folder on the head node.

    Please send them to hpcpack@microsoft.com

  • I am experiencing the same issue with the same type of hardware. The only difference is that I am using Windows HPC Pack 2016 Update 3. If you were able to resolve can you please post what the solution was. Need to finish my deployment.

    Thank you in advance.
