Requeue a Job or Task

Updated: May 20, 2009

Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008

Requeuing a job or task inserts it back into the job queue. To requeue a job or a task, you must be the submitting user or have administrative rights. You can requeue, Canceled, and, in some cases, Failed jobs or tasks.

Guidelines for requeuing jobs and tasks:

  • Requeuing a job requeues any unfinished tasks in the job.

  • When you requeue a task, the job that contains the task must be Running. Otherwise, the job itself must be requeued in order to rerun the task.

  • Finished jobs and tasks cannot be requeued. You can make a copy of a Finished job or task to run it again. For more information, see Copy a Job or Task.

ImportantImportant
To complete this procedure, you must have been added as a user on the cluster, or you must be a member of a domain group that has been added as a user on the cluster. For more information, contact your cluster administrator.

Requeuing a job

To requeue a job
  1. In the Navigation Pane, click My Jobs.

  2. In the job list, click the job or jobs that you want to requeue.

  3. Right-click your selection and click Requeue Job.

Requeuing a task

To requeue a task
  1. In the Navigation Pane, click My Jobs.

  2. In the job list, click the job that contains the task that you want to requeue. The list of tasks for that job appears in the Detail Pane.

  3. In the task list, click the task or tasks that you want to requeue.

  4. Right-click your selection and click Requeue Task.

Additional considerations

  • By default, the Job Scheduler service automatically requeues a job or task that fails because of a system failure, such as a node reboot. If you do not want tasks within the job to be requeued automatically, set the task property Rerunnable to false.

  • To open HPC Job Manager, click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft HPC Pack, and then click HPC Job Manager.
