Re: [Condor-users] Condor_master won't start!!

Is there anything interesting in the MasterLog on 8th April when it stopped running? Might want to verify you haven't run out of disk space somewhere.

I came back to my cluster after a few days away and found that the collector daemon was down. Here’s the output from a quick attempt to restart the master on the central manager

[steve@queen condor]$ condor_status

CEDAR:6001:Failed to connect to <>

Error: Couldn't contact the condor_collector on queen.bioinformatics.

[steve@queen condor]$ condor_restart

Can't connect to local master

[steve@queen condor]$ su


[root@queen condor]# condor_master

[root@queen condor]# ps -ef | grep condor

root     29265 29101  0 14:22 pts/1    00:00:00 grep condor

As you can see there are no condor processes running.

An ls –l of the logs directory before & after the above commands shows that the Masterlog access time has been updated, but the file size is the same as before the commands were issued. The last few lines of the Masterlog are dated 8^th April, which makes me think that it’s being opened and then closed without anything actually happening. All other logs are showing last access at least a week ago.

This was set up by a contractor who’s no longer around and while I don’t think he set any “special” parameters I can’t say for certain.

I’m running CondorVersion 7.0.5 on a Rocks v5.1 cluster of CentOS 5.2 boxes. We’ve got Quill & CondorView plumbed in as well. I can post config files on request.

As it’s on Rocks we’ve also tried running service rocks_condor (stop|start|restart) which has no effect … I think this is just a wrapper for the regular condor_* commands.

I can’t work out why condor_master is not doing anything and I’d really appreciate any advice.
