Re: [Condor-users] How To TroubleShoot Flocking

Finally got it to work.  What I did was create a small script called
gethost.sh that simply calls hostname, instead of directly running

For some reason, trying to just run hostname was causing the
condor_exec.exe failed error message.  I'll have to do some more
troubleshooting to determine if it was because no files were actually
transferred, or some problem/incompatibility with running hostname.

Thanks for all of the help.

To support transfering modified files, files in-flight live in the
directory, which is usually not shared. This can cause problems when
job runs on machines that need file transfer, get evicted, and starts
running again on a machine that does not need file transfer.
