I wanted to put this in the record.
The problems I was having getting our Mac's
to run the Condor daemons at boot was due
- We are using Apple's OpenDirectory for
centralized authentication and authorization
(it's Kerberos + OpenLDAP). The Condor
startup script was running before individual
systems had 'DirectoryServices' running
and able to answer queries. In particular
it had no idea who the user 'condor' was.
- We are also auto-mounting NFS home
directories and again these weren't available
at the time the startup was attempted.
We moved the startup of Condor as late as I
could determine was possible with
Description = "System Specific configuration";
Provides = ("Condor");
Requires = ("Multiuser Login Prompt");
OrderPreference = "last";
This turned out to be insufficent so we also
stuck a 'sleep 60' in the startup script just
before starting condor_master.
Hope this helps anyone else depending on Apple's
