Compute node stuck in "Provisioning" state RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to setup a compute node with Windows HPC Server 2008.  After changing the network topology, I have a compute node that is stuck in the "Provisioning" state.
    I have tried the following to get it unstuck:

    * Rebooted both the head node and the compute node.
    * Tried to use the Cluster Manager UI to cancel the operations.  But the "Cancel" option is greyed out.

    The problem is that when a node is in this state, it can't even be deleted (which would allow me to start over!).

    Any ideas on how to get out of this?

    Thanks,

    Brian

  • Hi,

    usually you don't want to do that :-).

    Try set-hpcnodestate -force  -state offline -name <nodename> inside the powershell on the headnode.
    It might take a reboot to do so but it should work in the current release.

  • With a little help, I did figure something out that works (although it is now pretty).  I uninstalled and reinstalled the HPC pack and things are fine.
