I think the problem is that -count 10 sets NUM_CPUS=10 in the glidein
configuration, which causes the startd to try and create 10 vms on
every node. That's probably why it runs out of resources. IMHO the
-count and -vms arguments to condor_config are extremely confusing and
can't do what you actually want them to do in most cases.

You are right.

Until this is fixed, I recommend running condor_glidein 10 times to submit 10 glideins, rather than trying to use -count.
