You can use Node Template Editor in HPC Cluster Manager to add deployment, configuration, and maintenance tasks to a node template for an on-premises node. Some of these tasks are added to new templates when you create them using the Create Node Template Wizard.

  1. If HPC Cluster Manager is not already open on the head node, open it.

  2. In Configuration, click Node Templates.

  3. In the Views pane, click the node template to which you want to add tasks.

  4. In the Actions pane, click Edit. The Node Template Editor appears.

  5. To add a task, click Add Task, and then click the task that you want to add from the list of available tasks. For more information about each node task and its parameters, see Understanding Node Templates.

  6. Repeat the previous step for all tasks that you want to add to the node template. After you are done adding tasks, click Save.
