Re: [Condor-users] draining jobs from only one node

In condor 6.6.6, there is no way to stop more jobs from running on the existing claim without disturbing jobs. In condor 6.7.x, you can use the -peaceful shutdown option. In 6.6.6, you can stop new resource claims from getting formed by reconfiguring the START expression, but this will not prevent more jobs from being run under the same claim.

I don't think it will work to kill the stard and leave the starter running. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

We have a cluster running the following condor version:

$CondorPlatform: I386-LINUX_RH72 $

We are interested in draining the jobs from just one node so that we can perform maintenance on it. That is, we would like to allow the currently running jobs to finish but to not allow any further jobs to start on this node. Is there a way to do that in this version of condor? What would happen if the condor_startd process was killed on a particular node? Would the condor_starter processes on that node continue to run until the associated jobs finished?
