Re: [Condor-users] How to install Condor in an Oscar Cluster?

Hello guys,

It's been more than a month now, still no one answered my question yet.
The cluster I'm talking below is kind of a Beowulf cluster and I want this
cluster to use Condor. Is it possible or not?

I have a Condor pool set-up outside the Beowulf cluster, only the master
node of the Beowulf cluster can communicate the Condor pool. And I want
the Beowulf cluster to be included in the Condor pool. Is this possible?
