Recommended approach for deployment of HPC Scheduler-aware applications? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have several applications that schedule jobs on the cluster (built using the sdk scheduler api's) that we need to deploy to multiple servers.  Is there some kind of HPC-Redist that exists for applications developed with the HPC Pack 2008 SDK?  It seems overkill to install the entire SDK, and does it also need the HPC Utilities from the HPC Pack? Do we just need a couple of dlls?

  • We didn't provide a HPC redistributable pack for Windows HPC Server 2008. We are planning for a client pack for Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 though.

    For HPC 2008, what you need is those dlls in the GAC or in the SDK library if SDK is installed. No other binary utilites (those under the bin directory of your HPC installation) is needed. But we don't provide a support of redistributable package.
