Re: [Condor-users] Checkpoint server doesn't spawn :/

The checkpoint server from 6.7.10 should work fine. Your problem appears to simple be that you don't have CKPT_SERVER defined in your config file. A typical config entry would look like this:

CKPT_SERVER = $(SBIN)/condor_ckpt_server

Forgot to mention :
I'm using Condor 6.7.10, and I've seen something about this in the changelog for 6.7.14 : do you think I should upgrade ?

And if necessary, is there a right way to make an upgrade without disturbing the "production" system ? (all the execute and submit node run the shared /nfs/condor/sbin binaries...

Thanks in advance for your help..

Hi all,

I setup a machine with condor, the edited the local config file, and added the following line :
and also the CKPT variables (as in example file for ckpt server)

Then I try to start condor, and nothing runs (ps ax|grep condor gives nothing)

I tryed to remove the CKPT_SERVER line from the config file, and I can then see the master running :
# ps ax|grep condor
3229 ?        Ss     0:00 /nfs/condor/sbin/condor_master
3239 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep condor

I then try to manually start the ckpt_server, and I get the following error : # /ibpc/io/condor/sbin/condor_checkpoint
Can't find address for local startd
Perhaps you need to query another pool.

I then have found and other error. In the first case (with CKPT_SERVER in condor_config.local), I can see a message in MasterLog : 3/17 10:05:30 Using config file: /nfs/condor/etc/condor_config 3/17 10:05:30 Using local config files: /scratch/condor/condor_config.local 3/17 10:05:30 DaemonCore: Command Socket at <xxx.XXX.xxx.XXX:32796> 3/17 10:05:30 CKPT_SERVER from your DAEMON_LIST is not defined the config files! 3/17 10:05:30 ERROR "Must have the path to CKPT_SERVER defined." at line 1296 in file daemon.C
--> Probably solving this will solve my whole problem : do you have any idea where I could define the "path to CKPT_SERVER", and what does this path represent ? server name, server dir ...?

Thanks in advance
