Re: [Condor-users] Dynamic Pool Configuration

Imagine I have a condor pool of 50 machines which are monitored/managed by some "parent node". Based upon the status of these 50 nodes, the jobs are submitted to them.

When you say "monitored/managed", do you mean the Condor system or a third-party management software? I'm assuming it is the former. Check out http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/manual/v6.7/3_1Introduction.html#SECTION00411000000000000000
for information about the Central Manager

Now, think of a new node (51st machine) that has been provisioned by some resource allocator. This node was not a part of the original condor pool. In other words, originally the "parent node" is not aware of this new node. My question is -- how do I make the parent node aware of the fact that a new machine has arrived (and it needs to be included in the pool and can be used for job execution, monitoring etc.) ?

Resources report to the collector, which then works with the negotiator to schedule jobs. All you need to do is use the proper value for CONDOR_HOST in the config file of the new "node". See for details.
