Re: [Condor-users] Multiple windows machine management?

Hi Ian,

Do you also share the condor binary, to make upgrade to  a new version easy?

We share all our configuration files (global and host-specific) off a
central share for our Linux, Solaris and Windows machines. Condor on
Windows will accept an UNC path for the location of the global
configuration file. The trick is that the share must be wide open to
read. No authentication allowed. Services on Windows run as account
SYSTEM which is an account that Windows generally does not allow to
acces network shares. If the share is wide open to read there are no
problems though. We use a Samba server set to read-only via a guest
account and it works perfectly.

You can also use the pipe capabilities of the CONDOR_CONFIG variable to
generate and/or fetch your Condor configuration files programmatically.
See the section "Executing a Program to Produce Configuration Macros" in
section for details:
