  • Hi Zeeshan
    When you say not on the same network do you mean the laptop is in a different domain to the cluster? If so you can work around this by using runas. You'll need to use the /netonly switch to achieve your goal so something like:
    runas /netonly /user:DOMAIN\username C:\Program Files\Microsoft HPC Pack\Bin\HpcJobManager.exe"
    from the command line should work, obviously replacing appropriate cluster domain & username and using the correct path to your HPC Pack installation.
