Re: [Condor-users] Condor Shadow exception: Permission denied - why?

Hi, Tan,

What are the permissions on the directory /var/local/condor/spool/ cluster2.proc0.subproc0.tmp when this occurs? How much disk space is free on that partition?

Hi all,
I am submitting a job to vanilla universe. I need to send condor_vacate_job time to time. But recently, I see my jobs being in Halt state after I send condor_vacate_job signal.
The error message that I find in the log file is:

007 (002.000.000) 01/26 12:00:30 Shadow exception!

I did not have this problem before, it is only recently that I see this shadow exception occurring. Could any of you have any idea whats causing this problem? Just to test, I have submitted all my files with permission set to 777, but still this problem persists.

Thanks in advance.
