Re: [Condor-users] Condor install on Windows XP

Thanks Ben and Ian for your comments. I ended up making a mistake with the configuration during the install by not allowing processes to run on the machines I added to the pool. Therefore, I could not see these machines in the pool. Once I changed this option (section 3) of the configuration file, I was able to view all machines with condor_status as well as submit jobs.

By default condor_status only shows you information about execute nodes,
nodes running condor_startd daemons. If condor_status -master shows you
all four hosts that's good -- it means they're all reporting your
central collector daemon correctly. It sounds like you just haven't got
any condor_startd daemons started on your machines. Did you set them up
to be execute nodes when you installed Condor? You need to make sure
DAEMON_LIST contains at least startd in the list of daemons to start.
Check your process tree for a condor_startd.exe process. Check your log
directory for a StartLog file from the condor_startd.exe (maybe it tried
to start but died).
