Re: [Condor-users] what's the default password for the condor-reuse-vmX acct.?

One thing to check right away is does your job have all of the environment
variables it needs to run. This is a common source of problems. Try including
getenv = true

in your submit file. 

If that fails, consider running the job with 

in the condor_config file of the execute machine (NOT in the submit file!)
This will cause condor to use the current desktop to display the job.

You may need to run something slightly different than your job - maybe run
cmd.exe as your executable, so you can get a shell as the condor-reuse user
exactly as the condor job would see. 

See this post for more details:

It's randomly generated, and reset after every job. You probably won't have
much luck that route.
