Compatabilty with ubuntu 18.04LTS RRS feed

  • Question

  • i am building a new Linux cluster based on Ubuntu and want to make sure I use the LTS release.

    18.04LTS has been recently released so I  have built a few nodes on this version.

    I am able to install the node agent and it appears in HPC manager but reports an error "HPC Node Manager Service is unreachable"

    looking at the logs on the Linux server I see repeated every minute;
    ERROR:HPC node manager process crashes: 127
    Restart HPC node manager process after 60 seconds

    is there some version compatibilities to be aware of?

  • Hey Peter, Ubuntu 1804 hasn't been validated at our testing side. We could do a validation and see what's going wrong.

  • Hi Peter, currently we don't have UBuntu 1804LTS available for testing, we will update this thread once we got this version for testing

  • Hi Peter,

    I deployed a cluster in Azure, and upgraded one Linux node from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The Cluster works well.

    Could you provide the logs under /opt/hpcnodemanager/logs on the Linux node for investigation? Mail hpcdisc@microsoft.com if you do not have a place to share the logs.
