Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008

This topic provides a quick reference for common job submission and job management actions. The tables below provide links to help topics for performing these actions using the three primary job submission interfaces in Windows® HPC Server 2008: HPC Job Manager, the Command Prompt window, and HPC PowerShell.

Looking for the Windows HPC 2008 R2 quick reference? See Job Submission in Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 Quick Reference.

To walk through an example job submission, with instructions for the three primary job submission interfaces, see the Submitting Jobs in Windows HPC Server 2008 Step-by-Step Guide. The guide includes steps for creating a job with a parametric sweep task, and steps for checking the status of your job.

To submit a job, 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.
