Well, I’m glad you got it working. I’ve heard many people have it running fine on a Win2k3 server. Maybe it’s a Group Policy issue? I’m not sure, but I did change the service to run with my credentials, and I’m God on my network. J

If it’s any consolation, I have Condor running on two Win2k3 servers. One machine is running the Negotiator and Collector, and the other is running all my remote schedds. I can’t give much insight as to what problem you’re running in to. I barely know how I was able to get mine working ;)

I tried 6.7.9 for Windows and I still have the exact same problems. While installing condor on my Win2k3 domain controller I got the error message I mentioned previously about condor_config.local. After install I fixed the crlf problems in the condor_config.local file. As I mentioned before, the paths in the condor_config files uses a mixture of both forward and backward slashes, so I fixed that as well. I also gave full control to the system account for the condor directory. I then started the condor service and only condor_master.exe starts. This machine is a central manager and should also be able to submit jobs. According to the docs I should have the following running:
My MasterLog file
As you can see, there is not much to go on here. Notice from the first startup message the mixture of forward and backslashes in the condor_config file that I had to correct. Since the other services aren’t started, no logs are generated for them.
I’m not sure what else to do. Any help would be appreciated.

I got a lot of feedback from everyone on my problem and I wanted to update everyone on what I am doing to resolve my problems. I noticed 6.7.9 has been released, so the first thing I am going to do is give this new version a try. Hopefully it will at least resolve the messed up condor_config file. If it does, that will probably also eliminate my installer errors that popped up about condor_config.
If that doesn’t work I will try many of the great suggestions offered everyone.
Thanks again for your help.

Has anyone had any luck using Condor on Windows 2003 Server with/without sp1 as a central manager? I tried, but it didn’t work. It was my first attempt at using condor, so maybe it was user error? J
BTW, my Win2k3 machine is also a DC.
