This monitor tracks the status of the HPC Management Service. When this service is stopped on the head node, the head node cannot discover or manage the configuration of nodes in the cluster. When this service is stopped on another cluster node, the node cannot communicate with the head node.
This error can be caused by any of the following:
On the head node, the HPC SDM Store Service is stopped.
The HPC Management Service encountered an error and had to stop running.
The HPC Management Service is disabled.
Group Policy does not allow this service to start.
To troubleshoot and fix this problem:
Restart the HPC Management Service on the target node. If you restart the HPC Management Service on the head node and the HPC SDM Store Service is stopped, both the HPC Management Service and the HPC SDM Store Service will start
Start Event Viewer on the target node and check for any system events from the Service Control Manager or application events from the HPC Management Service. Resolve any errors that are reported by these events.
If the service still cannot be restarted, contact the domain administrator to make sure that this service is not disabled by the domain Group Policy.
If the preceding steps do not resolve the problem, uninstall and reinstall Microsoft HPC Pack on the node.
