List of fixes for Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2 Update 3

    Question

  • The Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2 Update 3 version installed is 4.5.5079.0.  If I'm not wrong this is the initial release version.  IS there an update that include all available patches?  Do they need to be installed in a specific order?  Are they mandatory or to be installed only following specific issues?

    Based on the table below, I presume we should install only the last 4 KB Files since some supercede previous KBs.

  • You're right, what you need is to install:

    Update 3 Full: 4.5.5079

    + Accumulative QFE 4.05.5161

    + Latest 4.05.5187 QFE

    Then you will be up to date. And the issues being fixed are described in all the QFE download page. And you can always run from %CCP_HOME%bin\get-hpcpatchstatus.ps1 on your headnode and compute node to check the patching status, here is output from my node which mean I need to install KB4039431.

  • Thanks for confirming the update path to the latest HPC Pack. What about the SDK ? Will it also be updated if installed on workstation compute nodes use by developers?

  • For HPC Pack 2012 R2, if the develop installed the client, the assembly will be updated in the GAC as well, otherwise, the assemblies that go with the application needs to be replaced by the application.
