Error from SOA Broker Service: Failed to start/stop the load balancer service RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm just getting started with HPC and ran into a problem.  I can't create a WCF session.  This line throws an error.

    var session = Session.CreateSession(info)

    Microsoft.Hpc.Scheduler.Session.SessionException was unhandled
      Message="An exception occurred when submitting the job, see inner exception"
           at Microsoft.Hpc.Scheduler.Session.Session.EndCreateSession(IAsyncResult result)
           at ClientProgram.Program.Main(String[] args) in D:\TestArea\HPC.WCF.RandomTextGeneration\ClientProgram\Program.cs:line 20
           at System.AppDomain._nExecuteAssembly(Assembly assembly, String[] args)
           at Microsoft.VisualStudio.HostingProcess.HostProc.RunUsersAssembly()
           at System.Threading.ExecutionContext.Run(ExecutionContext executionContext, ContextCallback callback, Object state)
           at System.Threading.ThreadHelper.ThreadStart()
      InnerException: Microsoft.Hpc.Scheduler.Properties.SchedulerException
           Message="Unexpected exception -- Please see the broker execution log (under the user's profile directory)."

    So I looked into the event log on the Broker node and I see this:

    Broker Job:90
    Failed to start/stop the load balancer service. Error:Job could not be modified because jobs in the Finishing state cannot be modified.

    Anyone have a suggestion on where I should start at troubleshooting this?

    Thanks all,

  • Nevermind, I found the problem by looking in the failed task property.  Had a bad path in my service registration file.

    Microsoft.Hpc.HpcServiceHosting Error: 0 : Service Host Job Id = 93, Task System Id = 255, Running on DVDHPCCOMPUTE01
    [Main]: Cannot find the assembly file: D:\Services\HPC.WCF.RandomTextGeneration\bin\HPC.WCF.RandomTextGeneration.dll. Redeploy service HPC.WCF.RandomTextGeneration.dll.
