Powershell Provider missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I miss the Powershell provider in HPC 2008 like in the CCP Addon.
    There are any plans to add it later maybe together with Powershell V2 support. 

    cd ccp:
    dir nodes

  • The CCP Add-On that we shipped as part of the v1 toolback was sort of a POC for PowerShell and HPC.  Afterwards we didn't feel the PS Provider was that useful, so we didn't implement one in HPC Server 2008.  I don't think we have any plans to do so right now.

    Can you tell us a bit about how you were making use of it, especially what you found better than using our CmdLets?  That would help us understand the priority of this item.

  •  It's intuitional to use a powershell provider. Especially to get a short overview of the states (nodes , jobs). It's an additional view compared the new commandlets.
     - What's the state of the nodes?
     - Which jobs are running?
     - Which jobs are running of the node?
     -  On which nodes is a job running?

  • You can use PowerShell Command "Get-HPCNode" tp get the state of all the nodes, "Get-HPCJob" to get all the jobs are running, "Get-HPCJob [-NodeName <String []>]" to get all the jobs running on the specific nodes. Does that satisfy your requirement?
