Re: [Condor-users] condor help required


Unfortunately I don't have a step-by-step guide on how to configure the credential part in condor. But I can give some advice:

a) Condor_cred had some issues is previous versions and the condor team fixed those issue on version 7.2.1: if you have not upgraded to that version I'd recommend you to do so.

b) Download the latest condor manual for version 7.2.1; the condor team also rewrote the instructions on how to configure the condor_store_cred. They are more clear and simple to follow

c) After you setup all the condor_credd configuration, from the command prompt, list all the condor processes and make sure the condor_credd is running.

d) Do a condor_status -long and search for the LocalCredd ad which needs to be pointing to the server where the condor credentials are stored.

Good luck, and let me know if you succeed on your quest.

Hello Alex,

Good Morning!! How are you doing?  Are you experiencing any problem with Condor mailing system? I am not getting Condor mails now a days from Condor User community. Even i am not able to open archived mail-list page on condor website.

I had some problem with my condor pool, so I removed condor from all machine & now again trying to implement from scratch. But i am stuck at credd configuration. I have simple 2 workstation pool with one master & 1 execution node. without run_as_owner parameter jobs run well. But after configuring cred daemon, job runs with owner's id only when submitted on master. It does not work when submitted from exec node, and job stays in I state.

Can you guide me on where am i going wrong? Or do you have any step-by-step guide to implement condor?

think what you just did is to enable only 1 CPU for that machine on your condor

Hello Alex,

one more update, I got the clue for showing a workstation as a single
resource instead of 2 seperate cpu slots as resources. I achieved this by
making NUM_CPUS = 1 in condor.config file.

Now i will be trying for some more things. Condor is really a great tool.
