Re: [Condor-users] A Problem while restarting a checkpoint file

Thank you Mark and Daniel for your replies. As Daniel added, I am submitting the jobs to vanilla
universe and taking care of checkpointing by myself. Ya.. I dont find any apparent reason why it is causing this problem.

Those limitations apply to jobs run in the Standard Universe.

What Tan is doing is running a condor_compile'd binary as a Vanilla
Universe job and using the standalone features of checkpointing.

There is no reason why this shouldn't work.
