Requeue a Job or Task

Updated: January 13, 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 have administrative rights or be the submitting user. 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.

For information about using HPC Cluster Manager, see Overview of HPC Cluster Manager.

Requeuing a job

To requeue a job
  1. In Job Management, in the Navigation Pane, click All Jobs.

  2. In the job list, select one or more jobs.

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

Requeuing a task

To requeue a task
  1. In Job Management, in the Navigation Pane, click All Jobs.

  2. In the job list, click a job. The list of tasks for that job appears in the Detail Pane.

  3. In the task list, select one or more tasks.

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

Additional considerations

  • By default, the HPC 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 Cluster Manager, click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft HPC Pack, and then click HPC Cluster Manager. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue.
