Re: [Condor-users] Cannot Remove Job From Queue

condor_rm -forcex

if that fails (it sometimes does annoyingly) then you need to blat the
job log in the spool directory of your submit machine. if you have
other jobs in the queue you can try modifying it by removing specific
lines (don't recommend this) but much easier just to wipe the file
then restart condor, thus erasing your queue...

note that this is also the solution for an unstartable schedd due to
errors in the file (occurs when you qedit with dodgy parameters for

I ran condor_vacate and condor_off on my desktop as it had slowed to a crawl with the condor job in the background.  The job was preempted and left fine.  Another computer picked up the job, but is has been in a badput state for a day or so.  When I run condor_rm on the job it tells me job not found.  I restarted condor on the machine that had taken the job, but how do I get the job out of the queue so I can resubmit it?
