RE: [Condor-users] SOLUTION: Command-line install of Condor on Win32

Apologies all for the formatting in the previous email.

Hopefully there are now some <CR>'s in place to make it a bit more

Probably many people have some simple dos batch files like we do
but I thought I'd share in case it's useful.

These 3 scripts allow installation, version upgrade, or config update
remotely. The caveat is that you need admin access to the PCs you want
to manage. We use a remote execution package called beyondexec, psexec
is another such program.


usage: install machine-name

mkdir \\%1\c$\condor
xcopy /s /e \\fileserver.whatever\software\condor \\%1\c$\condor
xcopy /y /s /e \\fileserver.whatever\software\condor\condor_config
reg add \\%1\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Condor /v CONDOR_CONFIG /d
reg add \\%1\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Condor /v RELEASE_DIR /d "c:\condor"
beyondexec \\%1 
c:\condor\bin\install Condor Condor c:\condor\bin\condor_master.exe 
reg add \\%1\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Condor /v Start /t
REG_DWORD /d 2 /f 
beyondexec \\%1 -r net start Condor


usage: upgrade machine-name

beyondexec \\%1 net stop Condor
del /s /q \\%1\c$\condor\bin
xcopy /s /e /y \\fileserver.whatever\software\condor\bin
beyondexec \\%1 -r net start Condor


usage: update machine-name

copy /y \\fileserver.whatever\software\condor\condor_config
beyondexec \\%1 net stop Condor 
beyondexec \\%1 -r net start Condor


If you maintain a list of machines in a text file then you can create
more batch files to do the whole bunch at once. e.g.


usage: upgrade_all

for /f %%i in (pcs.txt) do upgrade_condor_wa %%i


If you're feeling really lucky you could even try something like this
instead! Not sure if this will work, but you get the idea.

for /f %i in ('c:\condor\bin\condor_status -master') do update %i


We have some customized stuff in the config files, e.g. highport and
lowport settings so the windows gui auto install below (I don't think)
will work for us.

We also have multiple pools so have slightly different versions of the
above for each pool.
