HPC client utils install on workstation nodes without UI components RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to install the client utils on my workstation nodes (win 7) without the UI components such as cluster manager and job manager?

    I do not want users to be using the UI components to view jobs. Want the HPC install to be 'transparent' to the users. Our custome written application(s) may be used to view the status/submit custom jobs etc. Possible?

    Am on 2012 R2 with HPC pack Update 3.Workstation nodes are Win 7 x64

  • This isn't possible in this version as client is the pre-requisite for server components. This will be possible in our future release (HPC Pack 2016) where we support client side by side.

    The best workaround you have now is to remove the GUI application after installation (HPCJobManager.exe and HPCClusterManager.exe)
