Step 8: Install and Configure HPC Pack 2008 R2 on the Other Server that Will Run Head Node Services
Updated: September 23, 2010
Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008 R2
After you set up HPC Pack 2008 R2 on one server, the next step is to set up HPC Pack 2008 R2 on the other server in the failover cluster.
|Before you perform the following procedure, be sure that you have completed the procedure called Prepare to run HPC Pack 2008 R2 Setup on a server in the failover cluster in Step 6: Install HPC Pack 2008 R2 on a Server that Will Run Head Node Services. The procedure in that topic contains crucial steps for removing individual user accounts from the local Administrators group on both servers in the failover cluster. Leave only group accounts (and optionally, the local Administrator account) in the local Administrators group before you install HPC Pack 2008 R2 on the second server in the failover cluster. Otherwise, individual user accounts that remain in the local Administrators group (on one or both servers in the failover cluster) will become permanent members of the HPC cluster Administrator role. For more information, see Step 6: Install HPC Pack 2008 R2 on a Server that Will Run Head Node Services.|
When you run HPC Pack 2008 R2 Setup, it detects that the server is configured for failover clustering, and it presents options as described in the following procedure.
Run HPC Pack 2008 R2 Setup on the other server in the failover cluster from distribution media or from a network location.
Important Ensure that you use the original HPC Pack Setup files to install HPC Pack on the other server in the failover cluster. You cannot install HPC Pack by using the files in the REMINST share on the first server in the failover cluster.
On the Getting Started Wizard page, click Next.
On the Select Installation Edition page, the edition is already selected. Click Next.
On the Microsoft Software License Terms page, read or print the software license terms in the license agreement, and accept or reject the terms. If you accept the terms, click Next.
If you see the Head Node Installation in a Failover Cluster page (which is expected), click Next.
If you do not see this page, Setup has not detected that the server that you are installing on is a part of a failover cluster, and you must confirm that the process of creating the failover cluster succeeded.
Continue to follow the steps in the installation wizard.
When the Installation Complete wizard page appears, select Start HPC Cluster Manager, and then click Finish. If the installation was not successful, review your configuration.
