Step 6: Install and Configure HPC Pack 2008 on the Other Server in the Failover Cluster

Updated: January 7, 2009

The next step is to set up HPC Pack 2008 on the other server in the failover cluster.

Run HPC Pack 2008 Setup on the other server in the failover cluster

When you run HPC Pack 2008 Setup, it detects that the server is configured for failover clustering and presents options as described in the following procedure.

To run HPC Pack 2008 Setup on the other server in the failover cluster
  1. Run HPC Pack 2008 Setup on the other server in the failover cluster from distribution media or from a network location.

  2. On the Getting Started Wizard page, click Next to begin installation.

  3. On the Microsoft Software License Terms page, read or print the prerelease software licensing terms. Accept or reject the terms of that agreement. If you accept the license terms, click Next.

  4. If you see the High Availability Head Node Installation page (which is expected), click Next.

    If you do not see this page, then 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.

  5. On the Select Installation Location page, accept the default locations or choose other locations for the HPC Pack 2008 files. Click Next.

  6. On the Use Microsoft Update to help keep your computer secure and up-to-date page, select whether to use Microsoft Update, and then click Next.

  7. On the Install Required Components page, review the list of prerequisite software. Software that has been installed has a green check icon next to it. Unchecked items on this list need to be installed before installing HPC Pack 2008. Click Install.

  8. When the Installation Complete wizard page appears, select Start the cluster manager console, and then click Finish. If the installation was not successful, review your configuration.
