4 Introduction In this section Introduction to Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server Getting started with Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server For more information... 6 Introduction to Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 is a high-performance computing cluster consisting of a head node and one or more compute nodes. HP ProLiant servers are used for the head node and compute nodes of the cluster. Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 is comprised of two components: Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Compute Cluster Edition is a Windows operating system based on Windows Server 2003, x64 Standard Edition. The installable version of the Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Compute Cluster Edition operating system provided by HP is based on Windows Server 2003, x64 Standard Edition with Service Pack 1. HP also provides the Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 upgrade on a separate CD. See "Upgrading to Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2" in the HP Factory-Installed Operating System for Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 User Guide for more detailed information and installation procedures. Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack is a combination of interfaces, utilities, and management infrastructure that makes up Windows Compute Cluster Server The version provided by HP includes Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack with Service Pack 1. The HP Supplement to Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 CD includes documentation, software, and utilities provided by HP. Getting started with Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 This guide details the prerequisites and steps necessary to complete the installation of Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 on HP ProLiant server platforms. A prepared Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 platform consists of a head node and one or more compute nodes, physically connected according to a supported topology. It also includes a supported x64 edition of the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system installed in advance on the head node at minimum. A general description of Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 is provided in the "Introduction to Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 (on page 4)" section of this guide. The supported operating systems and topologies, as well as hardware and BIOS requirements, are specified in the "Platform requirements (on page 9)" section of this guide. Introduction 4

Introduction 6

7 Useful terms In this section Head node... 7 Compute node... 7 Job Scheduler... 7 Management infrastructure... 7 Client utilities... 8 Compute Cluster Administrator... 8 Job Manager... 8 Command line interface... 8 Head node The head node provides user interface and management services to the cluster. The user interface consists of the Compute Cluster Administrator, which is an MMC snap-in; the Compute Cluster Job Manager, which is a Win32 GUI; and a CLI. Management services include job scheduling, job and resource management, node management, and RIS. The head node can also serve as a network address translation gateway (part of Internet Connection Services or Windows Routing and Remote Access) between the public network and the private network that make up the cluster. Compute node A compute node is a computer configured as part of a compute cluster to provide computational resources for the end user. Compute nodes on a Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 cluster must have a supported operating system installed. All compute nodes provided by HP use Windows Compute Cluster Edition as the operating system. HP Cluster Platform and HP Cluster Platform Express configurations consist of identically configured compute nodes. Job Scheduler The Job Scheduler service runs on the head node and is responsible for job submission and queue management, resource allocation, and job execution. This service communicates with the Node Manager service that runs on all compute nodes. Management infrastructure Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack offers a complete management infrastructure that allows the cluster administrator to deploy and manage compute nodes. This infrastructure consists of the cluster services running on the head node and all compute nodes in the cluster, providing the administrative, user, and command line interfaces used to administer the cluster, submit jobs, and manage the job queue. Useful terms 7

8 Client utilities Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack setup has the option of installing only the client utilities. Client utilities include the Job Scheduler API, Compute Cluster Administrator, Compute Cluster Job Manager, and the CLI. Client utilities can be installed on a range of 64-bit or 32-bit Windows operating systems, enabling an administrator to manage a cluster and the job queue from a remote computer. For a list of operating systems supported by the client utilities, see "Platform requirements (on page 9)." Compute Cluster Administrator The Compute Cluster Administrator is used to configure clusters, manager nodes, and monitor cluster activity and health. Cluster users and administrators use these interfaces for cluster operations, job submissions, and management. Job Manager The Job Manager is used for job creation, submission, and monitoring. Command line interface The Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack offers a CLI for node and job management. These operations can also be scripted. Administrators can use the CLI to automate job, job queue, and node operations. Useful terms 8

9 Platform requirements In this section Hardware requirements... 9 BIOS settings Operating system requirements for head node and compute node Operating system requirements for client utilities only Network requirements Hardware requirements The following requirements apply to both the head node and compute node computers unless otherwise specified. Hardware Processor, RAM, and multiprocessor support Minimum disk space for setup Supported network adapters Node GUID Head node disk partitions Requirement For requirements for Windows Server 2003, Standard x64 Edition, see the Windows Server 2003 x64 Editions Product Overview ( 4 GB Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 supports all networking hardware supported by Windows Server 2003, Standard x64 Edition. All network adapters used in the cluster have distinct MAC addresses. Network adapters to be used for the private network must support PXE booting. Nodes must be configured with network adapters to enable at least one of the five network topologies supported by Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack. There should be no duplicated hardware GUIDs across the cluster nodes if RIS is to be used for automated node deployment. Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 head nodes must have at least two hard disk partitions (such as C:\ and D:\) if RIS is to be used for automated node deployment. The RIS partition must be NTFS. HP recommends that the RIS partition be at least 2 GB in size to provide ample space for RIS images, which are each around 775 MB in size. The partition running Windows should be at least 4 GB in size, as previously specified. Platform requirements 9

10 Optical drives If your compute nodes do not have an optical drive (DVD or CD), then you cannot perform a manual installation from CD media, and you must use an automated installation method. Head nodes should always have an optical drive. In particular, HP BladeSystem servers must use an automated installation method because they do not directly support optical media. BIOS settings To support imaging using RIS, configure BIOS boot order on all compute nodes, so that PXE is in place for RIS installation on first boot. For example: PXE network boot Hard disk boot from C:\ Additional BIOS settings can include the following: Date and time Disable Intel Hyper-Threading If Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 was factory preinstalled by HP, or if you purchased through HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express, these BIOS settings have already been configured. If Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 was not factory preinstalled by HP and you purchased individual servers, configure these BIOS setting manually on the head node and each compute node. Operating system requirements for head node and compute node The supported operating systems are the same for both head node and compute nodes and include: Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Compute Cluster Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard x64 Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise x64 Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, Standard x64 Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, Enterprise x64 Edition For an overview of Microsoft 64-bit operating systems, see the Windows Server 2003 x64 Editions Product Overview ( NOTE: When Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 is provided by HP, the operating system is Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Compute Cluster Edition. HP also provides the Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 upgrade which can be installed after the initial cluster installation has been performed. Platform requirements 10

11 Operating system requirements for client utilities only Client utilities include the Job Scheduler API, Compute Cluster Administrator, Compute Cluster Job Manager, and CLI. The client utilities can be installed on 32- or 64-bit systems that are not part of the cluster. Only the following operating systems are supported for client utilities: Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, Standard Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, Standard x64 Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, Enterprise Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, Enterprise x64 Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Compute Cluster Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard x64 Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise x64 Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Standard Edition (32-bit x86) Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Enterprise Edition (32-bit x86) Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Microsoft Windows XP Professional with SP2 Network requirements Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 supports five different cluster topologies. Each topology has implications for performance and accessibility. The topologies involve at least one and possibly three different networks: public, private, and MPI. In some cases, NAT, part of ICS, must be installed on the head node. NOTE: Factory-installed Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 clusters on HP Cluster Platform and HP Cluster Platform Express support only two topologies, as defined in the HP Cluster Platform hardware documentation. The supported topologies supported by HP Cluster Platform configurations are Topology 1 (on page 11) and Topology 3 (on page 12). You can use any of the five supported topologies for building and configuring your clusters. Topology 1 Head node on a public and private network and compute nodes on the private network only. Platform requirements 11

12 This topology is referred to as "Two-Network Topology" in the HP Cluster Platform documentation and is supported by HP Cluster Platform and HP Cluster Platform Express. Topology 2 All nodes on a public and a private network. Topology 3 Head node on a public and private network and compute nodes on the private network only, with a second private network for MPI. This topology is referred to as "Three-Network Topology" in the HP Cluster Platform documentation and is supported by HP Cluster Platform and HP Cluster Platform Express. Platform requirements 12

13 Topology 4 All nodes on a public and a private network with a second private network for MPI. Topology 5 All nodes on a public network only. Special Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack prerequisites Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack setup requires that certain software be installed before installation can succeed. The setup program either installs or links to download sites for the prerequisite software. The prerequisites are a combination of Microsoft technologies and hotfixes that enable product functionality. The required software for the head node is listed, with links to download sites for the hotfixes and to MMC 3.0: ICS hotfix ( RIS hotfix ( MMC 3.0 ( Framework 2.0. This software is installed as part of the Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 head node installation process. MS SQL Desktop Edition. This software is installed as part of the Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 head node installation process. On a compute node, the only required software is the.net Framework 2.0, installed as part of the Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 compute node installation process. Platform requirements 13

14 All software, particularly the hotfixes, can be installed on a node before installing Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack. HP recommends installing the hotfixes and MMC 3.0 because they are not included on the CD. The hotfixes and other software listed above are included with Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 when provided by HP. If Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 was preinstalled by HP, the required hotfixes and other software are automatically installed, either as part of the factory installation process or through automated procedures provided by HP developed scripts. It is not necessary to download these hotfixes because they are included in the \HP-CCS\Hotfixes directory on the server hard drive (for preinstalled versions) or on the HP Supplement for Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 CD. If Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 was not preinstalled by HP, install the required software. HP provides batch files to assist you in this process. The batch files are located in the \HP-CCS\Hotfixes directory on the server hard drive (for preinstalled versions) or on the HP Supplement for Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 CD. The procedures are outlined in the installation sections of the HP Factory-Installed Operating System Software for Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 User Guide. Platform requirements 14

15 Checklists for deploying a compute cluster In this section Cluster deployment overview Determining which process to use Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 preinstalled for HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 preinstalled on individual servers Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed from CD Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed using Microsoft Remote Installation Services Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed using the HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack Cluster deployment overview You must perform several basic steps to complete the installation of your cluster. However, because of the various Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 purchase options from HP, these steps might vary slightly for each scenario. The following steps outline the basic installation procedures to install Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack on your prepared Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 platform. See "Determining which process to use (on page 16)" for directions on which set of detailed installation procedures to follow. This wizard-driven procedure is performed using Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack Setup.exe. The detailed installation procedures are found in the installation sections of the HP Factory-Installed Operating System Software for Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 User Guide. 1. Verify that the computers you intend to configure as cluster nodes meet hardware and software requirements. (See "Platform requirements (on page 9).") 2. Verify that you are installing the cluster on a supported network topology that meets the needs of your users and developers. (See "Network requirements (on page 11).") 3. Create and configure a cluster head node: a. Verify that a supported x64 edition of Windows Server 2003 has been installed on the head node. (See "Platform requirements (on page 9).") If you intend to use the RIS method of creating and adding compute nodes to your cluster, you must also create a second disk partition to contain RIS installation images. Your operating system might have been factory preinstalled by HP. b. Verify that the head node is joined to an existing Active Directory domain (recommended) or use Dcpromo.exe to make the head node a domain controller for the cluster. The Active Directory service provides the means to manage the identities and relationships that make up network environments. Active Directory is required for Windows Compute Cluster Server c. Configure DNS, DHCP, and other required network services for your cluster's networks. d. Install Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack on the head node. e. Select the option for installing a head node. f. Configure the network interfaces of the head node. Checklists for deploying a compute cluster 15

16 g. If you installed NAT/ICS on the head node, disable the Windows Firewall on the public network. 4. Install Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Compute Cluster Edition on each compute node. Installation can be done multiple ways, depending on how you purchased Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 from HP. See "Determining which process to use (on page 16)" to decide which set of detailed installation procedures to follow. 5. Add one or more compute nodes to your cluster. This process can be completed manually or by using HP provided scripts. See "Determining which process to use (on page 16)" for more information. 6. Add administrators and users to your cluster. 7. (Optional) Upgrade the head node and compute nodes with Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2. See "Upgrading to Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2" in the HP Factory-Installed Operating System Software for Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 User Guide for more detailed information and installation procedures. Determining which process to use There are five installation scenarios for completing the installation of Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 on HP ProLiant servers. Which scenario you use depends on how you purchased Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 from HP: Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 preinstalled for HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 preinstalled on individual servers Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed from CD Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed using Microsoft Remote Installation Services Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed using the HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack The procedures found in this document provide an overview of the installation steps and are not meant to provide step-by-step instructions. For detailed procedures, see the appropriate section in the HP Factory- Installed Operating System Software for Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 User Guide. NOTE: You must be logged in as a user with domain administrative privileges to install Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack. Criteria for selecting the correct installation procedure There are two main criteria for selecting the correct installation procedure: 1. Did you purchase Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 from HP as a preinstalled option through HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express or preinstalled on individual servers? o o If you purchased Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 through HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express as a preinstalled option, then use the "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 preinstalled for HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express (on page 18)" installation procedure. If you purchased Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 as a preinstalled option for individual servers (not through HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express), then use the Checklists for deploying a compute cluster 16

17 "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 preinstalled on individual servers (on page 19)" installation procedure. 2. Did you purchase Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 from HP as an option that was not preinstalled (CDs only) for HP Cluster Platform, HP Cluster Platform Express, or individual servers? o If all of your servers (head node and all compute nodes) have an optical drive (DVD or CD), then use "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed from CD (on page 20)." This procedure requires you to perform a manual installation on each node. If you prefer to perform an automated installation (recommended with more than 16 nodes), use "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed using Microsoft Remote Installation Services (on page 21)" or "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed using the HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack (on page 22)." o If your compute nodes do not have an optical drive (DVD or CD), then you cannot perform a manual installation from CD media, and you must use an automated installation method. Head nodes should always have an optical drive. In particular, HP BladeSystem servers must use an automated installation method because they do not directly support optical media. Use "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed using Microsoft Remote Installation Services (on page 21)" or "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed using the HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack (on page 22)." If you are not sure which method to use 1. Check your delivery documentation to see if it was configured using HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express and to see if it includes preinstalled versions of Windows Compute Cluster Server o HP Cluster Platform and HP Cluster Platform Express configurations ship with integrated components such as servers and Ethernet switches. Depending on the size of your configuration, some on-site intrarack cabling might be required, as described in the HP Cluster Platform hardware documentation. HP Cluster Platform configurations might be designated as CP3000 (for Intel -based clusters) or CP4000 (for AMD-based clusters). However, Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 might not be preinstalled. o If your servers shipped individually and your cluster is not fully configured in a rack, then it is not part of an HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express configuration. Use the procedures for individual servers. 2. If you do not know whether Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 was preinstalled, connect a keyboard, monitor, and mouse directly to one of the servers and power on the server. o If the server does not boot to an operating system, then Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 was not preinstalled. Follow the steps in "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed from CD (on page 20)," "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed using Microsoft Remote Installation Services (on page 21)," or "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed using the HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack (on page 22)." o If the server boots to the Windows login screen showing user name and password and your servers arrived fully racked and cabled (except for possible intrarack cabling for clusters that exceed a single rack), then you have an HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express configuration, and Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 was preinstalled. Follow the steps in "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 preinstalled for HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express (on page 18)." Checklists for deploying a compute cluster 17

18 o If you have individual servers (not part of an HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express configuration) and the server boots to a Windows installation interview screen (welcoming you to Windows and showing a license message), then Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 was preinstalled. Follow the steps in "Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 preinstalled on individual servers (on page 19)." Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 preinstalled for HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express If Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 came preinstalled on your servers and you purchased HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express, follow these instructions to complete the installation. As part of the service provided by HP with HP Cluster Platform and HP Cluster Platform Express configurations, much of the individual server configuration has already been performed by HP before you receive your cluster. In general, each server already has the operating system installed (including software and hotfixes required for Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003), network addresses and node names configured, and HP-MPI for Windows and Voltaire Gridstack for Windows installed (if purchased). All servers are configured as part of a workgroup (called Workgroup) and are ready to be added to your domain. 1. Be sure the cluster is connected to power and cabled to your local area network. 2. Connect a keyboard, monitor, and mouse directly to the head node. 3. Power up all nodes. 4. Choose one of the following options: o Add the head node to your Active Directory domain o Use Dcpromo.exe to make the head node a domain controller for the cluster. 5. Execute the Pre-HN batch file provided by HP. This batch file installs the prerequisite software and hotfixes needed for the head node. 6. Install Routing and Remote Access on the head node if your compute nodes are not directly connected to your public network. Do not use NAT/ICS. 7. Run the cluster setup on the head node to create and configure your cluster. 8. Execute the Add-Domain script from the head node. This script adds the compute nodes to your domain. Be sure to use the Fully Qualified Domain Name with the script. 9. Execute the Add-CN script from the head node. This script adds the compute nodes to the cluster. Be sure all compute nodes have a DNS entry before running the script. 10. On the head node, run the Compute Cluster Administrator and approve the pending compute nodes to activate them in the cluster. 11. Add administrators and users to your cluster using the User Management wizard in the Compute Cluster Administrator. 12. (Optional) Upgrade the head node and compute nodes with Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2. Checklists for deploying a compute cluster 18

19 Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 preinstalled on individual servers If Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 came preinstalled on your individual servers but not preconfigured as part of a HP Cluster Platform or HP Cluster Platform Express configuration, follow these instructions to complete the installation. As part of the service provided by HP with preinstalled individual server configurations, some of the individual server configuration tasks are automatically performed as part of the HP preinstallation process. In general, each server is ready to complete the operating system installation and already has the required software and hotfixes for Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 installed. 1. Install the servers in a rack, and cable each server, as necessary. Be sure the network is configured with one of the five supported network topologies. 2.
