This monitor tracks the status of the HPC SDM Store Service. When this service is stopped, none of the administration tasks can be performed.
This error can be caused by any of the following:
The HPC SDM Store Service encountered an error and had to stop running.
The HPC SDM Store Service is disabled.
Group policy does not allow this service to start.
To troubleshoot and fix this problem:
Restart the service on the target head node. (Use a link to the Start SDM Store task). In a cluster configured for high availability of the head node, the service runs only on the active head node. Use Failover Cluster Manager to restart the service in a high availability environment.
If the service cannot be started, resolve the errors that are reported by the Service Control Manager. The Service Control Manager will produce an error event if the service is terminated unexpectedly. Start Event Viewer on the target compute node and check for any system events from the Service Control Manager or application events from the HPC SDM Store 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.
