Re: [Condor-users] Condor_store_cred and win2003 server

Title: RE: [Condor-users] Condor_store_cred and win2003 server


I've running CONDOR 6.7.18 on a Win2003 Server box using store_cred for authorization. I realize this is an older version of CONDOR, therefore ymmv.

I found that I couldn't set any of the HOSTALLOW settings to *. I'm using *.xxx.xx with the xx's being Connection-specific DNS suffix that you can get by running ipconfig on the machine.

Hope this helps.

I'm having trouble with some windows 2003 server clients that refuse to
store credentials via condor_store_cred.

The symptom is that every add or query operation on the client gives the
same error message:
C:\condor\bin>condor_store_cred query
Account: Reds@REDS

Operation failed.
    Make sure your HOSTALLOW_WRITE setting includes this host.

C:\condor\bin>condor_store_cred -p xxxx add
Account: Reds@REDS

Operation failed.
    Make sure your HOSTALLOW_WRITE setting includes this host.

hostallow_write is "*" everywhere.

The master is linux FC4, everybody runs 6.8.5. Clients running XP don't
have this problem.

I'd rather not have to set up a credd: This is running on a firewalled
subnet, with only one user in the entire domain..

Any suggestions?
