Default Job template ask "Task Execution Failure Retry Limit". RRS feed

  • Question

  • Configuration:

    Serveur: Windows server 2012 R2 (HeadNode + ComputeNodes).

    HPC Pack 2012 update 2

    I had troubles when I tried to edit my Default Job Template in my Cluster Management.

    Job Template Editor provide me error below:

    "Cannot remove item Task Execution Failure Limit from default job template"

    I didn't add this parameter, so I don't understand why this error appear.

    For fix this and add other configuration, I had "Task Execution Failure Retry Limit" option, but can I passtrought this option?

    Any idea?

    Thank you.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Ron,

      You can just put the default setting of "Task Execution Failure Retry Limit" in the "Default" job template. And you can have your own job template without this. The "Default" job template has two purpose:

    - If use didn't specify any job template name when submitting a job, the default job template will be used

    - If constrained not specified in the user's job template, then it will fall back to the "Default" job template. Thus you can treat the setting in "Default" job template as system wide default setting until admin changes it.
