[Condor-users] Problem with Windows XP workers

Hi all,

I have a Condor Master running on Mandrake Linux 10 with a number of
worker machines running Windows XP. All (master and workers) have condor
6.7.2 with Java Universe.

The workers are behind a firewall but I opened all the required ports
(standard and ephemeral range 29000-40000 (LOWPORT and HIGHPORT
respectively)) and they can communicate. I can't see any problems with
the firewall. 

When I submit a java job from the condor master targeted to any of these
XP workers the job is assigned to the worker and the condor_q shows the
job as running. condor_status shows the worker being Claimed and Busy.
The job though never finishes and after a while though I get the

On the submitter side the log says:

007 (090.000.000) 12/18 14:05:43 Shadow exception!

Can no longer talk to condor_starter <>

0 - Run Bytes Sent By Job

0 - Run Bytes Received By Job

repeated many times.

On the worker side the Starter log says:

Can anyone see what's wrong here.

There is also one more thing that I don't know if its important or not.
When I setup Condor to the Windows XP machines I didn't use the
administrator account for the domain but the local administrator

Thanks in advance
