Verify Activation of the HPC Basic Profile Web Service
Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008
To verify the successful activation of the HPC Basic Profile Web Service and the establishment of the trust relationship between the client and the Web service, use a Web browser to navigate to the URL that you specified during the activation of the HPC Basic Profile Web Service through the PowerShell script. If you did not specify a URL, the default URL will be based on the head node computer name (for example,
https://<computerName>/HPCBasicProfile, where computerName is the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the head node).
The generic Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service page should be displayed in your browser with no certificate validation errors.
If the WCF service page does not appear, verify that the HPC Basic Profile Web Service is running by examining the installed services through the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in and the System Event Logs. Attempting to start the service manually with WCF logging enabled can provide further diagnostic information.
If certificate validation warnings appear, verify that the Certification Authority certificate that is used by the host certificate on the server is present on the certificate store of the client computer.
To verify the correct operation of the HPC Basic Profile Web Service, you can run a client that uses the HPC Basic Profile protocol to communicate with the service. For information about using a client application to connect to the HPC Basic Profile Web Service, see Creating Clients that Connect to the HPC Basic Profile Web Service (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=128113).
