Re: [Condor-users] condor_config_val -set problem

Are you running >= 6.7.18? The default security setting for condor_config_val
changed in 6.7.18..

Release notes say:
"The security of the ``condor_ config_val -set'' feature was found to be
insufficient, so this feature is now disabled by default."

I'm having trouble getting condor_config_val to set variables. First, I
set HOSTALLOW_CONFIG equal to my hostname in etc/condor_config,
restarted condor, then typed in the command:

  condor_config_val -set "MY_RESOURCE_1 = FALSE"

And received this error message:

  Attempt to set configuration "MY_RESOURCE_1 = FALSE" on master
foobar.static.net <> failed.

foobar.static.net's MasterLog had this to say:

5/15 16:59:52 DaemonCore: Command received via TCP from host
5/15 16:59:52 DaemonCore: received command 60002 (DC_CONFIG_PERSIST),

5/15 16:59:52 WARNING: Potential security problem, request refused

I've replaced the value of HOSTALLOW_CONFIG with anything I could think
of...hostname.domainname, just the hostname, ip addresses
("", ""), "localhost"...even "*".  The variable
I'm trying to change is initialized in my host's local configuration
file, and I'm not explicitly overriding HOSTALLOW_CONFIG in my host's
local configuration file.  I am using Condor 6.7.19.  Any ideas?
