Problem on job submission RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Windows HPC on Windows Server 2008 which is set up as a virtual machine on VirtualBox. I also have a virtual machine Windows 7 as a client on virtualBox. I am trying to create a job and submit it to the two machines.

    So I created job which is a simple echo on the screen, but when I tried to run it on two nodes I got the message error :

    The number of cores in the cluster (1) is less than the minimum of cores required (2). Specify a lower minimum number of cores and try again.

    It sounds like the server does not recognize the other machine on the network. It replies though when I do a ping from the server !

    If anyone could help me with this that would be nice.

  • Do both machines belong to the same domain?

    Can you run "node list" from command line to list all available nodes in your cluster?

    Verify that all nodes are in online state and how many cores are ready to use.
