Step 5: Run Diagnostic Tests on the Cluster

Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008

After you have configured your head node and added all compute nodes to the cluster, you should run diagnostic tests to validate cluster functionality and troubleshoot any configuration issues.

To run diagnostic tests on the cluster

  1. In the To-do List, click Validate your cluster (under Diagnostics).

  2. On the Run Diagnostics dialog box, ensure that the Run all functional tests and All nodes options are selected, and then click OK.

  3. To see the progress of the diagnostic tests and the test results, in Diagnostics, click Test Results.

  4. To see detailed information about a test, double-click the test. To expand the information in a section of the test results, click the down arrow for that section.


For more information about using diagnostic tests to troubleshoot your cluster, see the Troubleshooting section in the Windows HPC Server 2008 technical library.
