cluster Windows Server 2008 Enterprise RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are going to make the cluster from 2 nodes (OS windows). For 256 GM memory we use Windows Server 2008 Enterprise (trial version). Have you got any docs (manual) for cluster set-up (configurate)? or manual for Windows Server 2008 HPC Edition has enough information for cluster set-up (configurate)?

  • Yes, manual for WS2008HPC should be enough. There are no pitfalls with installation already, so even without detailed installation manual you can install it without problems.

    But you can take a look on this link for short walkthrough:


    And this wiki page contains all what you need:

  • Hello Alex.


    Do you know how to configure my task? (Pls. look below)

    I created job which runs .net app. with multiple threads in it. I assigned 4 nodes which allocated as resource for execution. But for some reason my app runs only at one node. I can force via setting to run on specific one but not on all on them. How can I enforce that my job run on all nodes.  3 out of 4 nodes located on VMs on same blade. I have 30 threads on 7 cores in total. Can one exe run on multiple nodes? If yes how can I achieve that?
