Managing Cluster Users

Applies To: Microsoft HPC Pack 2008 R2, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2, Windows HPC Server 2008 R2

You can add domain users and groups to the cluster in different roles to access cluster resources. For example, HPC cluster administrators have permissions to manage all aspects of the cluster, and HPC cluster users can create, submit, and modify their own jobs. Domain users or groups that have not been added to the cluster cannot access cluster resources.

You can set permissions for the job templates that you create to limit the job templates that specific cluster users or groups can use when submitting jobs to your HPC cluster. You can also set permissions for managing the job templates, by granting specific users or groups the permission to edit, copy, and delete a job template. For more information, see Set Job Template Permissions. You can only give job template permissions to users or groups that are already members of the cluster in one of the cluster user roles.
