Windows HPC 2012 Beta install failing at the first hurdle RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am attempting to create a new Windows server2012 head node, the HPC pack 2012 beta install is failing. It is not detecting my account as a Domain account. I have successfully added the machine to the Domain using my credentials and I can sign in fine on the server.

    I have also asked a Domain Admin to attempt the install and he is getting the same result.

    Any help with troubleshooting this is greatly appreciated.

    Best wishes

  • Hey Jimmy,

    What is the error that you are getting during failed installation? What installation component is failing to install?

  • Hi Amol,

    Thanks for your reply, here is the error I receive, I can confirm that I am logged in as a Domain user, the server is in the Domain and my account is in the administrators group on the server:

  • Fixed this by a bare metal re-install of Server 2012.
