MDCS - Discover Clusters Functionality
1 view (last 30 days)
I have a small implementation of Microsoft HPC Server 2012 R2 running on a server 2012 R2 box. I have MDCS setup and working and validations pass when I run MATLAB on the head node. However, I am unable to discover the head node using the 'Discover Clusters' feature. This functionality will be crucial if we decide to deploy MDCS on our production network.
I'm curious how the head node is made discoverable to clients. Is this done via publishing details somewhere in Active Directory or DNS? If anyone is able to give me further details on the intricacies of discovery I can verify if the mechanism exists on our development network.

We use an Active Directory search to locate the HPC Server head nodes, using the method described here . The details of the cluster should have been published in the Active Directory during the installation of the HPC Server product itself.
Which release of MATLAB are you using?
