Updated: July 23, 2010

Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008 R2

You can use a Node Preparation task to perform basic provisioning of the nodes that are allocated to your job. For example, a Node Preparation task can include commands to perform the following tasks:

  • Copy files.

  • Create a directory structure.

  • Verify the running environment.

  • Start or stop services.

You can use a Node Release task to clean up or collect data from nodes as they are released from your job. For example, a Node Release task can include commands to perform the following tasks:

  • Move locally created data or log files to a shared resource.

  • Delete files or directories.

  • Return the node to its original state.

  • Start or stop services.
