Removing node which is stuck in provisioning state RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I have a node which is stuck in provisioning mode.
    There is no delete option available in the right click context menu.
    The command line option

    "clustercmd  /Nodes /Remove:hpc2008node003"

    has no effect too, and reports back, that a node in provisiong state cannot be removed until provisioning is finished.

    Problem is, the node got stuck because of a typo in the product key. I corrected the product key in the ComputeCluster Console and restarted the node. Now abortpxe.com is passed to this node and it isn't coming up because the bootmanager is not properly installed.
    In my opinion it should be possible to redeploy the node.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi Johannes,

     

    You don't need to remove the node to get back to its original state. The cool thing is you can actually cancel the operation that's performing the provisioning task.

     

    If you're using CTP version, then you should be able to do in PowerShell:

    Get-HpcOperation -NodeName hpc2008node003 | Stop-HpcOperation

     

    This PowerShell command line will get the operation you're executing on that node and cancel it. (Note if you're doing any other tasks on the node, this line will cancel it as well.)

     

    In UI, you can highlight the node and click on the operations link inside the Pivot To section in the Action pane (the left most one). This will take you to the operation view for that node. You can then find the one that's executing and right-click to cancel it.

  • Thank you very much.
    "Found" the operations menu yesterday after a hint.

    But thanks for the powershell command!
