Re: [Condor-users] CONDOR_IDS in condor_config


You don't need to install condor as root, but I will suggest create
condor user and work with that. And CONDOR_IDS is to be set as env
variable only. However this didn't work for me and so I worked with user
account only.

I hope this will be of some help.

I'm doing a fresh Condor 6.8 install.

I'm trying to do a condor_init and I'm finding this error message:

# condor_init
Error determining who should own the Condor-related directories.
Either create a "condor" account, or set the CONDOR_IDS environment
variable to the valid uid.gid pair that should be used by Condor.

As I wouldn't like to run daemons as root, I set:
CONDOR_IDS = 501.501  in condor_config, but the error is still there.

Is mandatory to set this var as an env var, or, as the manual says,
it's possible to set this var in condor_config file?

Many thanks in advance,
