Re: [Condor-users] Condor on Windows Login Problem

Hi Ian

We apply our patches on login via NAL

Unfortunately there does not appear to be a correlation

I have pulled the plug on Condor until we can resolve this

This sounds nasty. We run 6.8.4 here with Win XP and I haven't
seen/heard anything about this. But - catch 22 - most of the students
away so how would anyone know. I'm not in the Windows/Novell team here
so I couldn't tell you off hand of our patch history (I could find out). 
How do you apply your patches ? Are they done through re-imaging or through
an on-login NAL ? Does there appear to be any correlation between the
patched machines and the ones with the problem.
