Popular question.  This is going to sound really obvious, but this error
occurs when condor_submit asks the schedd for a new cluster number, and
fails to get one.  (Where a condor job is numbered cluster.proc:  job
16.0 has a cluster number of 16 and a proc number of 0.)

The hint here is to look in the SchedLog.  (To find the SchedLog, use
'condor_config_val SCHEDD_LOG'.)  Make sure that D_FULLDEBUG is turned
on for your schedd: 'condor_config_val SCHEDD_DEBUG'.  If it isn't,
change SCHEDD_DEBUG to D_FULLDEBUG in your condor config file.  Then

With D_FULLDEBUG on, try again.  Check the SchedLog, and I bet you'll
see something like:

"NewCluser(): OwnerCheck failed\n"

Look just above this error, and tell us what you see.
