Hi John,

You have to set up some sort of remote authentication mechanism in order to be able to do remote submissions. Have you done that?

The security section in the manual describes the various mechanisms supported by Condor and howto configure them.


bah! I was hoping to avoid that and rely on host-based.

It isn't intuitive that if I take a machine, I can install
condor on it and add it into the pool, submitting jobs from its
own schedd to all over the pool, yet I cannot use that same
install to submit remotely to other schedds in the pool.

It sounds like what you want is CLAIMTOBE authentication. This basically gives you host-based security for remote user authentication. Example:


I think I rely on FS security (or whatever the default is), how is
this different in the remote submission rather than local submission case?

FS authentication doesn't work for remote authentication, but you can use a similar mechanism called FS_REMOTE to do remote authentication, if you have a shared NFS directory.
