Your pm37 machine either isn't in DNS or the full hostname, including

If you just give condor a hostname it'll tack on DEFAULT_DOMAIN_NAME and
try to find that fully qualified name in its list of hosts. You need to
make sure pm37's fully qualified domain name matches
pm37.$DEFAULT_DOMAIN_NAME. Alternativily you can give condor_status the
fully qualified hostname:
condor_status -direct pm37.foo.bar.your.domain.com
Thank you for your explanation.
Your story, however, does not match with what I experience.
Could you please help me understand what is the magic of
the @-sign in the condor hostname resolution.
The pool PCs in question here are public library PCs.
None of them are configured with a full domain names.
Their purpose is to "connect from" not "connect to".
So I would understand if I can't connect to none of them.
However, condor_status has no problem with dual core PCs,
apparently the names "slot1@..." and "slot2@..." do resolve!
The two PCs in my pool are:
Neither 23-4, nor pm37 are qualified hostnames. However:
$ condor_status slot1@23-4
Name OpSys Arch State Activity LoadAv Mem ActvtyTime
slot1@23-4 WINNT51 INTEL Owner Idle 0.000 1010 0+01:15:04
$ condor_status pm37
condor_status: unknown host pm37
Rob--you don't say which machine you are actually doing
the condor_status from. What happens if you do
condor_status pm37 on the pm37 machine?
The magic of the @ sign is that condor_status deals with daemon
I think the absence/presence of the @-sign is crucial here!
What magic does condor_status do with the @-sign in the hostname?
For example "condor_status @pm37" does not give any output,
also no error message about 'unknown host' !
I wonder if this problem could be solved easily, if I can address
a single core PC with an @-sign in its name, for example: "slot@pm37"
Unfortunately that does not work. Anything else I can try?
