Re: [Condor-users] windows environment questions

STARTER_JOB_ENVIRONMENT works fine (I can set environment variables).  JOB_INHERITS_STARTER_ENVIRONMENT on the other hand appears not to work.  It should take the entire environment that condor_starter.exe runs with and give that to condor_exec.exe?  Because it doesn't... the environment is no different than before.  Thanks for your help.

I am running condor on a small group of Windows XP machines, with a RHEL

windows machines, they don't load the system environment.  So far the
only thing I can do is set the variables I need in the submit file.

I looked into how the jobs are running, and they seem to run under the
user IS\condor-reuse-vm1, a user created (I assume) by the condor msi.
This user has no profile (there is no folder for it in Documents and
Settings, nor does it show up in sysdm.cpl under user profiles).
Furthermore, it is not a member of the group NT AUTHORITY\INTERACTIVE.
Is it possible that this is causing it to load the incorrect
environment?  And if so, will adding condor-reuse-vm1 to this group
cause any problems with condor?

Totally forgetting I can use 6.8 things now...

If you just want to inherit directlly you can use
