Yes, to use multiple boxes you need to have Windows Computer Cluster Server (v1) or the new Windows HPC Server.

Subject: [MPI.NET] mpi on 2 XP machines



I can use MPI.NET on my box using 1 or more cores.

I tried though to run my program using another box on the network but I get a lot of errors.

Both machines run MPI.NET and MS Compute Cluster Pack SDK.

Do I need to have a MS CCS in order to mpiexec program to remote boxes?

Can't this be done on a peer-to-peer fashion?


Here the error I get:


Aborting: Access denied by node ''.
A common cause: this node is a resource managed by the Compute Cluster scheduler and mpiexec was attempting to use it without a scheduled job.
