arbitrary incorrect task dependencies RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using HPC 2008 R2 to run our jobs on an Windows cluster. Because we have variable tasks depended on the user settings we are using the IScheduler in our .NET software to create and submit jobs. That's working fine in most cases, but sometimes the dependencies are not added to the job. In these cases the job get sticks in the Configuring part of the HPC Job Manager. To add dependencies I'm using the DependsOn of ISchedulerTask. The bad thing is that you can not see the task dependencies when a job is submitted, you have to export the job to *.xml and import it again.

    Does somebody of you now why this happens randomly and how to fix it?

  • Can you try below command to  check whether you can see the task dependecies:

        From CLI: task view 2.2 /detaled | findstr DependsOn

        From PSH: get-hpctask -jobId 2 -taskId 2|fl Depend

    This shall list the task name that this task depends on
