problem on install HPC RC2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't choose On the Select Installation Type page, option Create a new HPC cluster by creating a head node. Can select only one option Install only the client utilities. but I install AD and DNS Server on Master Node . Why on master node can't select option Create a new HPC cluster by creating a head node.

  • Head Nodes and Compute Nodes must be running an x64 version of Windows Server 2008; if you're running the install on a machine that does't meet this criteria (e.g. one with a 32-bit OS) these option will be disabled.

  • Very simple,
    install Windows Server 2008 R2 and it will work.
