[Condor-users] Help Setting Up CREDD on Windows

Hi All, 

Has anyone written a guide on setting up CREDD on Windows?  I've
searched the Condor manual for hours and it appears it gets mentioned in
1 section under Platform-Specific Information but that's about it.
Doing Google searches on the subject turns up a number of hits on this
forum from others who have had difficulty with getting CREDD to work but
not one thread seems to actually come to a solution.  The Condor manual
seems to be missing several important pieces of information.  For
example, it appears CREDD requires the use of a condor_pool user but
there is never any mention of this in the manual.  No mention of how
this user is supposed to be created or how it's credentials are to be
stored.  Does this have to be a real domain user or is it just a Condor
artifact?  I've tried to run condor_store_cred add -c -p but I get the

C:\condor>condor_store_cred add -c -p secretpassword -d
Account: condor_pool@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

3/4 17:34:21 condor_read(): recv() returned -1, errno = 10053, assuming
reading 5 bytes from <>.
3/4 17:34:21 IO: Failed to read packet header
3/4 17:34:21 store_cred: failed to recv answer.
Operation failed.
    Make sure you have CONFIG access to the target Master.

I am doing this from my central manager (also my CREDD server) and have
granted that machine explicit permissions HOSTALLOW_CONFIG. Error 10053
is a socket error so I thought maybe it was a firewall issue.  I turned
off the firewall but that did not resolve the problem.

I have been using Condor since at least version 6.6.4 and while I have
always found configuration issues to be confounding there has always
been some documentation to fall back on.  With CREDD I feel I'm totally
shooting in the dark.

Thanks your time,
