Seems to be a common problem, dig in the archives for this. It might be
a problem with authentication (I have this here, if I try to
"condor_store_cred add" with my domain-wide windows-username "saric" I
get the same error, the logfiles say that "saric@PROTEOM-CENTRUM"
(PROTEOM-CENTRUM beeing the name of the NT4-style domain run by a
Samba-Server over here) cannot be found (of course not, because
PROTEOM-CENTRUM is not a machine-name our DNS knows)).

I don't know enough about the tangled mess, which is called "Windows
Domain" to decide, wether it is an error NOT to have a computer which
answers to name-resolution-requests aimed at the global NT-domain-name
instead at a specific machine or wether something is broken in Condor.

As this is a repeating problem -could some of the Condor-programmers try
to explain this a bit further (beyond what can be found in the

And can someone with a NT4- or Win2k-PDC who does not have the
above-mentioned problem maybe answer the question, wether a ping on the
domain-name resolves to a certain machine (most likely the PDC).

Thanks in advance.
