Parameter Description

/scheduler:<name>

Specifies the host name or IP address of the head node for the cluster that contains the node. The value must be a valid computer name or IP address. If you do not specify the /scheduler parameter, this command uses the scheduler on the head node that the CCP_SCHEDULER environment variable specifies.

  • If you specify a node that is already offline, in the process of going offline, or in the process of coming online, this command fails. Specify only valid nodes that are currently online for this command.

  • You must be a cluster administrator to run this command successfully.

To take the node named computenode46 offline, use the following command:

node offline computenode46

To take all of the nodes in the HPC cluster offline, use the following command:

node offline /all

To take all of the nodes in the node group named MyNodeGroup offline, use the following command at the command prompt:

for /f ″usebackq tokens=1 skip=2″ %i in (`node list /group:MyNodeGroup`) do node offline %i

To use the previous example in a .cmd or .bat file, replace each occurrence of %i with %%i.
