      NOTE: This fix has been superseded by the HPC Pack 2008 R2 Service Pack 2

      This update fixes a set of issues that can occure when submitting or cancelling jobs under the following situations:

      1) Submitting a job from a user account in a domain that does not have a trust relationship with the domain the cluster is in will fail.

          Apply this fix to allow the user to enter credentials for the Head Node's domain from the Job Console or use runas credentials from command line and powershell job submission.

      2) Under some stress / heavy usage conditions it is possible for the HPC Job Scheduler to receive a request from a user to cancel jobs at the same time it was trying to automatically preempt the job. When this happens the Job Scheduler reports to the user, or client application, that the job has been cancelled, but it actually is requeued and will run again automatically.

          Apply this fix to enable the HPC Job Scheduler to properly process the events and report the correct job status back to the user or client application.

      3) If certain non-standard characters appear in a username (such as a quote) job submission could fail.

          Apply this fix to allow the HPC Job Scheduler to properly handle usernames with non-standard characters.

      Note: This fix supersedes KB2494559. This fix will install whether KB2494559 is installed or not, and contains all the fixes that were contained within it.
