Save a Job or Task to a File

Updated: January 13, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft HPC Pack 2008 R2, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2, Windows HPC Server 2008 R2

In HPC Job Manager, you can save a new or previously submitted job or task. After you define a job or a task, you can export the job or task specifications to an XML file. This allows you to preserve a job or task as a pattern for future submissions. When you create a new job from an XML description file, or add a task to a job from an XML task file, you can modify any of the job or task properties before submission.

You can use the following procedures to save a job or task using HPC Job Manager.

noteNote
To complete this procedure, you must be the job owner or a cluster administrator.

  1. In HPC Job Manager, in the Navigation Pane, click My Jobs.

  2. In the job list, right-click the job that you want to save, then click Export Job.

  3. Type a name for the XML file when prompted.

    noteNote
    While the description file name and the job name can be the same, they are separate entities. This allows you to assign a specific name to a job and a generic name to the description file.

  1. In HPC Job Manager, in the Navigation Pane, click My Jobs.

  2. In the job list, click the job that contains the task you want to save. The Detail Pane displays a list of tasks for that job.

  3. Right-click your task, then click Export Task.

  4. Type a name for the XML file when prompted.

    noteNote
    While the description file name and the task name can be the same, they are separate entities. This allows you to assign a specific name to a task and a generic name to the description file.

  • In the New Job dialog box, you can save a job before submitting it by clicking Save Job as. You can also save a job that is partially created for later completion. You can also save individual tasks to a file before submitting the job (in Edit Tasks, click a task, then click Export to File).
