Re: [Condor-users] Running jobs in Xen (vm universe)

My understanding of the vm universe is that condor just starts up the vm and doesn't have the ability to execute scripts in the VM once it starts up. So, if I wanted a generic disk image for Xen, I'd have to get a program to start up when windows loads, find a job and run it using some mechanism unrelated to condor. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a windows program that does this fetching and running of jobs in the VM.

Sure, run Condor in your VMs and having them join your pool.
