Re: [Condor-users] jobs fail to run, with "Warning: Found no submitters"

Thanks so much for the help.  I really appreciate it.

So I've tried all of these suggestions, and still I haven't been able to get a job to run yet.

I have a bet...

I bet Zach was wrong--probably the HOSTALLOW variables were set to * already, right? Or something sufficiently open anyway.

Condor assumes that DNS (or /etc/hosts) is set up so that for all machines in your Condor pool:

1) Names can be resolved to IP addresses (foo.example.com ->
2) IP addresses can be resolved to names ( -> foo.example.com)

Any machine in your pool is expected to be able to do this, not just the submit node or the central manager.

A common problem is that one or both of these doesn't work right. Condor will check the HOSTALLOW settings but it do some DNS lookups as part of this to ensure that everything looks good. When the DNS lookups fail, it is usually reported as a permission denied error. (Maybe we should have a better error message!)

So this is a possible reason that you are getting permission denied errors.
