Unable to contact compute node RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying the HPC pack 2008 beta2.


    I have configured the head node (with a Windows Server 2008 RTM),

    then I have installed the HPC pack in a Windows Vista Business 64bit with no problems.


    I have written the xml to add the compute node and I've added it... but it fails during the provisoning with this errors: 


    Could not contact node 'OPENPC' to perform change. No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
    Could not contact node 'OPENPC' to perform change. All resolved addresses failed.

    (I have censored the ip)


    I already checked in the compute note (OpenPC) with netstat that the port 6729 is closed and I don't know what service should use it and how to enable that (unknown for me) service.


    How can I resolve the problem?

  • Found the problem:

    a compute node must be a Windows Server 2008 64bit.


    In fact, when I've installed the HPC pack in Windows Vista, the installer given me only one choice: "client node".


    Well, problem solved Big Smile
