HPC Job Scheduler Service cannot be started. RRS feed

  • Question

  •         We have a windows hpcs 2008 r2 cluster, and the job scheduler service cannot start recently. Everytime I try to restart it from service console, I get a warning message like that: "The HPC Job Scheduler Service service on local computer started and then stopped. Some Services stop automatically if they are not in use by another services or programs."

            I check the log from event viewer(in the "Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\HPC\Scheduler\Operational" section), and I see a very strange error message "Value was invalid. Parameter name:sddlForm". Here's the details:

    - System

            The problem persists after upgrade to hpc pack 2008 sp1. Can anybody help me out, I'll be quite appreciated for that.

  • This is certainly unexpected. I'd suggest that you call customer support, they should be able to help you out.
