Re: [Condor-users] condor_submit not respecting umask

here's the problem ...

- condor daemons run as user condor
- user johndoe call condor_submit from a working directory below /
- users condor and johndoe both have umask 0000
- condor creates jobname.1.0.stderr.out and jobname.1.0.stdout.out
owned by johndoe with permissions -rw-rw-r--

and i get ...

WARNING: File /home/johndoe/test/jobname.1.0.stdout.log is not
writeable by condor.

why does condor insists on creating stderr/stdout files with -rw-rw-
r-- when i've tried so many ways to get -rw-rw-rw- ?

any comments appreciated.

If Condor is started as a user other than root or the user submitting jobs, you're going to run into permissions problems of this kind. If you can't start Condor as root, then you should start a separate condor_master and condor_schedd for each user running as them. You can have multiple condor daemons running on the same machine, as long as they have separate log and spool directories.

Running the central manager and execute daemons as 'condor' isn't a problem, as long as you're using Condor's file transfer mechanism.
