Re: [Condor-users] Problem running 7.2.0 on x86_64 RHEL5

Hi Zach,

Problem resolved! Your suggestion I look at /etc/init.d/condor led me to
discover an older installation (7.0.1) that was sitting in /usr/sbin.
I've removed those binaries, dropped in a symlink to the 7.2.0 sbin
directory and everything works fine.

Thanks for your help.

i would check the following:
1) your init script /etc/init.d/condor and the paths within it
2) run 'which condor_master'
3) run ident on that binary and check the version
4) run 'condor_config_val master'
5) run ident on that binary and check the version

just to double check that you are really invoking the 7.2.0 master and
not a previous version.  the symptoms you described are exactly what
you'd see if a
7.0.2 master tried to run a 7.2.0 daemon.

if you are still having problems after verifying all that, please open a
ticket by emailing condor-admin@xxxxxxxxxxx and send along the output of
those commands.
