Connecting to HPC 2008 Head Node with HPC 2016 Client Utilities RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is HPC 2016 Update 1 backwards compatible with HPC 2008? I have HPC 2016 Client Utilities installed and I am trying to connect to a HPC 2008 head node but I keep getting the following exception:

    Exception forwarding Job 108 to HPC 2008 Unable to find assembly 'Microsoft.Hpc.Scheduler.Properties, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35'.

    I followed the solution from this thread as I was getting a different exception originally but now I am getting the exception above.

  • Hi,

    Connect to HPC Pack 2008 using HPC 2016 Update 1 SDK is not a officially tested scenario. But from the exception you shared, the problem is not related to compatibility.

    Start from HPC Pack 2016, our SDK is delivered via Nuget package instead of client utility. If you are suffering from missing dll, please add package reference to our latest nuget package. You can get it and its history versions from https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.HPC.SDK/
