-AllowNewUserConnections<Boolean>

Specifies whether the HPC Job Scheduler Service should allow users to connect to the HPC Job Scheduler Service to create and submit new jobs and tasks.

A nonzero value or $true indicates that the HPC Job Scheduler Service should allow users to connect to the HPC Job Scheduler Service to create and submit new jobs and tasks. The HPC Job Scheduler Service places the jobs in a queue and runs them in the order defined by the scheduling policy for the HPC cluster.

A value of 0 or $false indicates that the HPC Job Scheduler Service should allow only cluster administrators and system services that are running on the head node of the HPC cluster to connect to the HPC Job Scheduler Service, and it should not allow users without administrator privileges to connect to the HPC Job Scheduler Service. Use a setting of $false when you are doing maintenance work for the cluster and you need to prevent users from accessing the HPC Job Scheduler Service and its database. For example, you would use a setting of $false while you are backing up and restoring the database. This setting does not prevent cluster administrators from creating and submitting jobs and tasks.

When you upgrade an HPC cluster , the AllowNewUserConnections property for the cluster is initially set to $false, and it automatically resets to $true when the upgrade is complete.

You cannot specify both the AllowNewUserConnections parameter and any of the following parameters: AllocationHistoryTtl, CollectCounters, DataExtensibilityEnabled, DataExtensibilityTtl, EmailCredential, Environment, InstallCredential, MinuteCounterRetention, HourCounterRetention, DayCounterRetention, NodeNamingSeries, or WDSMode.

-AzureLoggingEnabled<Boolean>

Specifies whether to turn on or off the collection of trace log data from Windows Azure nodes. If collection of data is enabled, the trace logs for all Windows Azure nodes that are deployed are written to the WADLogsTable table in the Windows Azure storage account for each node deployment. Only Critical, Error, and Warning error messages in the trace logs are collected.

A non-zero or $true value turns on the collection of trace log data. A value of 0 or $false turns off the collection of trace log data. Changing this parameter only affects collection of data for future Windows Azure node deployments. The current deployments are not affected.

Important: Collection of log data for Windows Azure deployment activities uses table storage space and generates storage transactions on the storage account associated with each deployment. The storage space and the storage transactions will be billed to your account. Data collection is generally enabled only when problems occur with the deployment and is used to aid in troubleshooting issues with the deployment. After you disable data collection, the logs will not be automatically removed from Windows Azure storage. You may want to keep the logs for future reference by downloading them. The log entries can be cleaned up by removing the WADLogsTable from your storage account.

For more information about logging for Windows Azure nodes, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=273926.

This parameter was introduced in HPC Pack 2012. It is not supported in previous versions.

-AzureLogsToBlob<LogMode>

Specifies whether to turn on or off the transfer of trace log files from Windows Azure worker nodes or proxy nodes to a container in blob storage (hpclogs) in the Windows Azure storage account for each node deployment. Valid values for this parameter are:

Disabled   No log files are transferred to blob storage (default)

Proxy   Only log files from the proxy nodes in with the deployment are transferred to blob storage

Compute   Only log files from the worker nodes in the deployment are transferred to blob storage

All   Log files from the proxy nodes and the worker nodes in the deployment are transferred to blob storage

Changing this parameter only affects transfer of trace logs for future Windows Azure node deployments. The current deployments are not affected.

Important: Saving Windows Azure deployment log files in blob storage uses storage space and generates storage transactions on the storage account associated with each deployment. If enabled, saving log files from worker nodes can affect the performance of all Windows Azure deployments that use the same storage account, especially if you have large deployments, or several concurrent deployments. The storage space and the storage transactions will be billed to your account. After you disable transfer of log files, the log files will not be automatically removed from Windows Azure storage. You may want to keep the log files for future reference by downloading them. The log files can be cleaned up by removing the hpclogs container from your storage account.

For more information about logging for Windows Azure nodes, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=273926.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

Sets the credential that is used to install compute nodes and run diagnostics tasks.


PS C:\>Set-HpcClusterProperty -InstallCredential CONTOSO\someone

EXAMPLE 2

Sets the naming series that is used to name new compute nodes added to the HPC cluster in the future. The naming series in this example generates compute node names like MyCluster1000, MyCluster1001, and so on.


PS C:\>Set-HpcClusterProperty -NodeNamingSeries "MyCluster%1000%"

EXAMPLE 3

Sets a cluster-wide environment variable named CCP_CLUSTER_NAME to mycluster.


PS C:\>Set-HpcClusterProperty -Environment "CCP_CLUSTER_NAME=mycluster"

EXAMPLE 4

Sets a cluster-wide parameter named HeartbeatInterval to 40. This value means that the job scheduler will send a health probe to the HPC Node Manager Service every 40 seconds.


PS C:\>Set-HpcClusterProperty -HeartbeatInterval 40

EXAMPLE 5

Sets the cluster-wide parameters named TtlCompletedRuns and RunCleanupHour to 6 and 4, respectively. As a result, information about completed diagnostic test runs are stored in the database for 6 days, and the information about those test runs that have been stored for greater than 6 days is deleted at 4:00 AM.


PS C:\>Set-HpcClusterProperty -TtlCompletedRuns 6 -RunCleanupHour 4

EXAMPLE 6

Sets the cluster-wide parameters named EmailNotificationEnabled, EmailSmtpServer, and EmailFromAddress to $true, MySmtpServer, and someone@contoso.com, respectively. As a result, email notification about jobs is turned on and the HPC Job Scheduler Service sends those emails by using the SMTP server named MySmtpServer and from an address of someone@contoso.com.


PS C:\>Set-HpcClusterProperty -EmailNotificationEnabled $true -EmailSmtpServer MySmtpServer -EmailFromAddress someone@contoso.com

EXAMPLE 7

Sets the scheduling mode to Balanced, the priority bias to MediumBias, and the rebalancing interval to 15 seconds.
