Subject: [Condor-users] New feature request: condor_store_cred verify

The scenario: user changes their NT password and then forgets to run condor_store_cred delete/add to update the stored credentials. The trouble arises when a scripted interface to condor uses "condor_store_cred query" to ensure the user has stored their credentials -- it returns true if the credentials are stored, even if they are stale. It would be useful to either augment the query argument or add a verify argument to condor_store_cred that checks the stored credentials to make sure a user's credentials that are stored work.

Currently users see errors in their shadow.log file if their credentials aren't working. I don't want to have to educate my users on Condor log file analysis.

Seems like a trivial thing to check that the stored credentials function properly on-demand like this.
