Updated: August 11, 2010
Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008 R2
After the base node is deployed, you can modify it before an image is created from it. For example, you can install available updates or install an application that you want to run on all the iSCSI boot nodes, or you can add specific device drivers that are required by the iSCSI boot node computers.
To modify the base node
In Node Management, in the Navigation Pane, under Nodes, click a group that contains the base node.
In the views pane, right-click the base node, and then click Remote Desktop.
Type a user name and a password for an account that has administrative credentials on the base node, and then click OK.
To connect to the base node, in the Current nodes list, click the base node.
Perform any necessary changes and customization to the base node, and then log off the node.
