Set Default Action Account to Monitor Cluster Nodes

To monitor the nodes in the cluster using the Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 Management Pack, you must configure the Default Action Account with the appropriate privileges. For more information, see Security Considerations.

To set the Default Action Account

  1. Open the Operations Console, expand Security, and then click Run As Profiles.

  2. In the Run As Profiles pane, double-click Default Action Account, and then click the Run As Accounts tab.

  3. Under Run As Accounts, set the agent account that is running on each target computer with appropriate privileges to discover the node role. A domain account is usually used in this case.
