Re: [Condor-users] Problems submitting jobs from windows to Linux and vice versa

Thank you for your response, we did try your suggestion and it partially worked. Being more specific, we are in the process of submitting a few test jobs to our condor pool and are having a few errors.  Here is the configuration:
*	Three Windows XP machines running condor - installed c:\condor
*	Two LINUX machines running condor - installed \9\condor and \condor

We can submit jobs from both platforms, but jobs run local and are not submitted to the condor pool for processing.  Condor_status shows processors being matched and claimed but the confirmation e-mails show that is only running on the computer were the jobs are submitted.

We want to deploy condor jobs across multiple platforms, but the file system structure will be different.  i.e. Condor installed in different directories.

Is there a path variable you can add to the description file or config file to take into account different directory structures?

Thank you in advance.

Did you try/follow the advice in the Condor Manual, specifically the 
section "Heterogeneous Submit: Execution on Differing Architectures" ?
