Completely isolated cluster? RRS feed

  • Question

  • is it possible to create a hpc cluster that is completely isolated in private network (means there is no connection to enterprise network for both head node and compute nodes)? 
    if yes, what configuration can be done to achieve this build?

  • You at least need a enterprise network for headnode. Otherwise, how do you connect to you cluster?

  • Thanks yidingz, but is that possible for me to submit job using the head node, the distribute it to other compute nodes? That means I will be doing my work using head node computer.

  • This will work, but you will need a domain controller active on the HN or another node to provide user security. Local accounts only are not supported. This confiuration is often used for testing or proof of concept deployments.

    There is more information about this in the Deployment Guide on Technet:
