Re: [Condor-users] Starting condor_master on boot

Yes and no...

using hostname.local was going to be a future problem for me anyway since the
Novell OES installation is within VMWare and we want to duplicate the image and
run it on multiple nodes as a virtual linux overlay on top of our existing
windows pool - meaning we need a standard non-hostname specific condor
installation in the image allowing us to assign ip addresses to new condor linux
nodes using dhcp.

As for altering startup script priorities, I presume I would alter something in
the condor file in /etc/init.s - but what ?

Thanks again

Wouldn't it be better to just have the condor startup script run after DHCP,
since Condor depends on the network working?
