Save a Job or Task to a File

Updated: May 20, 2009

Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008

In HPC Job Manager, saving a job or a task to a file means exporting 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.

To save a job or task to a file, you must be the submitting user or have administrative rights.

ImportantImportant
To complete these procedures, you must have been added as a user on the cluster, or you must be a member of a domain group that has been added as a user on the cluster. For more information, contact your cluster administrator.

Saving a job

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.

Submitted jobs can be saved at any time. The following procedure describes how to save a job that has already been submitted.

To save a submitted job as a description file
  1. 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. Enter 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.

Saving a task

In the New Job dialog box, you have the option to save individual tasks to a file before submitting the job (in Task List, click a task, then click Export to File).

Submitted tasks can be saved at any time. The following procedure describes how to save a task that has already been submitted.

To save a submitted task as a task file
  1. 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. Enter 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.
