Modify a Job

Updated: May 20, 2009

Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008

In HPC Job Manager, you can modify the properties of jobs in the job queue. To modify a job or a task, you must be the submitting user or have administrative rights.

Guidelines for modifying jobs and tasks:

  • For jobs in the Queued state, all properties can be changed.

  • For jobs in the Running state, only the following properties can be changed:

    • Run time (dd:hh:mm)

    • Run until canceled

    • Project name

  • Jobs in the Canceled and Failed states can be modified, and then requeued.

  • You cannot modify a Finished job. To run a job again, either as-is, or with changes, see Copy a Job or Task.

  • Tasks can be added to active jobs (in the Configuring, Queued, or Running state).

To complete this procedure, 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.

To modify a job
  1. In the Navigation Pane, click My Jobs.

  2. In the job list, click the job that you want to modify.

  3. Right-click your selection and click Modify Job.

  4. Change the property values as appropriate.

  5. Click Modify to apply the changes. If necessary, requeue your job.

Additional considerations

  • To open HPC Job Manager, click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft HPC Pack, and then click HPC Job Manager.
