Windows HPC Server 2008 Headnode under drining state RRS feed

  • Question

  • We installed Windows HPC Server 2008 with 16 Nodes on SGI ALTIX XE 250 Server Hardware, recently when we tried to submit new jobs, found that our Head Node continuously under Draining state and never comes to Online or Offline while the other 16 Nodes are in Online.

    Applied Windows Server HPC 2008 Service Pack 1 and also applied the Hot fix from Microsoft   http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967222

    but still problem not resolved.

  • When a job is in the draining state it indicates that there is a job  running that is using that node. Are there any jobs in running or cancelling state that are using the headnode?
