You can tell condor_submit to put this in the environment of the job as
part of the submission ticket:

environment = WHOLE_MACHINE_JOB=$(RequiresWholeMachine)

If that doesn't work you can tell the Startd to advertise
RequiresWholeMachine as part of it's ClassAd when I a job starts by
adding the following to your condor_config file on the machine:


And then putting the following in your submit ticket:

environment = WHOLE_MACHINE_JOB=$$(RequiresWholeMachine)

One of those will work. I think. :)
