Windows could not start the MS-MPI Launch Service on Local Computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Getting this error on HPC Pack 2012 R2 cluster in Azure. Event log says nothing ("The description for Event ID 1 from source MsmpiLaunchSvc cannot be found"), the referenced error code is -2147023655.

    Any clues?

  • Hello,

    The service from Hpcpack (msmpi) and MS-MPI (msmpilaunchsvc) are sharing the same port and thus only one of them should be running. If you want to use MSMPI with Hpc pack please use the submission feature of hpc pack to run the jobs. You can take a look at the reference here


    The MSMPI launch Service is designed to address the need of running ms-mpi in an environment without HpcPack. If you can describe to us in more detail what you’re trying to do we can offer more specific suggestions.
