Activation/patching task at the end of deployment fails RRS feed

  • General discussion


    The activation task ( and potentially the patching task )  may fail if the proxy server is not  specified on the compute nodes.  The activation task and the patching task may need to contact a server in the cloud for which they need a proxy server.

    to set this explicitly you can use the netsh command.


    to see if the proxy server is set,

    clusrun  netsh winhttp show proxy


    to set the proxy server name explicitly

    clusrun  netsh winhttp set proxy  http://<proxy server name>:<port>

    Another good option is to add a "Run OS Command" task to your Node Template that executes:

    netsh winhttp set proxy http://<proxy server name>:<port>


    Rock on,
