Note 1: Windows HPC Server 2008 Compatibility with previous versions

  • All of the command-line tools in Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 (such as Cluscfg for configuration, and Clusrun for running commands remotely on one or more nodes) are still included.
  • Windows HPC Server 2008 provides API-level compatibility for applications integrated with Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003. These applications might, however, require changes to run on Windows Server® 2008. If you encounter problems running your application on Windows Server 2008, you should consult your software vendor.
  • Windows HPC Server 2008 supports job submission from Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 clients, including the command-line tools, the Compute Cluster Job Manager, and the COM APIs.
  • The Windows HPC Server 2008 client tools, including the cluster administration console (HPC Cluster Manager), the job scheduling console (HPC Job Manager), the command-line tools, and the APIs cannot be used to manage or submit jobs to a Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 cluster.
  • Clusters that have Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 nodes and Windows HPC Server 2008 nodes are not supported.

Note 2: considerations

  • A side-by-side installation of Windows HPC Server 2008 and Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 on the same computer is not supported. This includes the Windows HPC Server 2008 client utilities.
  • The upgrade of a Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 head node to a Windows HPC Server 2008 head node is not supported.
  • The installation of HPC Pack 2008 adds the following server roles to the head node:
    • DHCP
    • Windows Deployment Services
    • File Services
    • Network Policy and Access Services, which enables Routing and Remote Access so that NAT services can be provided to the cluster nodes.
