Re: [Condor-users] Error 1067

I just started getting this very problem on a Windows XP-Pro condor cluster running 6.8.3.  This after 2 years of successful condor usage!  Coinciding with the condor problem was a registry cleaning and removal of unused programs, so I’m sure it’s something I did—but what?  Condor is successfully still running on other machines in the pool (all Windows).


-          Condor has permission to write to the log directory but absolutely no log is created or written.

-          condor_config and .local are in proper location.

-          Windows Event Viewer records the error but gives no other clues.

-          The registry has the two required key entries ( Manual Installation Condor on Windows)

-          Rebooting doesn’t fix it.

Hey Paul,

Make sure that your condor_config and condor_config.local files are in the expected locations.  I just recently had this error when I forgot to remove a .txt extension after copying my config file from another location.

Also, make sure that condor can write to the logfile location.

Best of luck,

Have you looked at the condor logs (specifically the master log) and
the windows event logs...
