Before You Import the Management Pack

Before you import the Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 Management Pack, take the following actions:

  • Decide who is going to monitor the HPC cluster.

  • Configure HPC administrator rights for this domain account in HPC Cluster Manager. Some monitors and tasks contain PowerShell scripts or call diagnostic tools that must have HPC administrator rights to run.

  • If you will be monitoring workstation nodes, you will need an account that has local administrator privileges on the workstation nodes.
