Error while adding user to HPC cluster - complaining about local administrator account RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am getting following error while trying to add domain local or global group to HPC cluster using add administrator link under Configuration -> users.

    Note that TFNSWSRV01 in screenshot below is a server name and it is complaining about local admin account in local admin group on Master node. I can't add local users or group to HPC cluser users.

    Also note that this computer was initially configured as a domain controller and was demoted to member server after HPC cluster was installed.

    Any Suggestions?

  • HPC cluster is domain environment and local users are not allowed to run jobs.You can not ( by the design) add your local user/admin to the cluster.

    You need Domain Ccontroller ,Active Directory with users (so domain users not local users) and Head Node role installed as minimum setup.
