Re: [Condor-users] Error evaluating rank

You might need to try this:

in case owner is undefined???

OWNERBOOST = Owner =?= "user1" || Owner =?= "user2" 

Just a wild stab in the dark, but it means OWNERBOOST will always
resolve to true or false, rather than true/false/undefined

Subject: [Condor-users] Error evaluating rank

Hi folks,

	I've been fiddling with the RANK expression in
condor_config.local, and I find that I'm getting errors of the form
"Error evaluating rank"
in StartLog when I use lines like the following:

OWNERBOOST = Owner == "user1" || Owner == "user2"
RANK = 10*( 2*OWNERBOOST - 1 ) - LoadAvg + 20

What's wrong with this syntax?  Also, is there any command-line tool for
checking the syntax of condor_config files?  (Like samba's
