Subject: [Condor-users] Issue introduced in 7.2.3 (Windows)

We are running a Windows only grid of 4 machines and we are seeing a
very strange problem with 7.2.3 that seems to have been introduced since
6.9.3 ( we upgraded all machines to 7.2.3)

Our vanilla universe .sub file has a line

transfer_output_remaps = "VA14.va1=VA14_$$(arch)_$$(opsys).va1"
This worked as expected under 6.9.3

Now under 7.2.3 when we submit the job it is correctly matched with a
machine, but never goes into the run state, it is rejected for 'unknown
reasons' and stays in the idle state.

condor_q -analyze
The response is one I have never seen....
-- Failed to fetch ads from: <> : CARDIFF
CEDAR:6001:Failed to connect to <>

( The machine CARDIFF is the machine that submitted the job)

If we then change the line to , say,
transfer_output_remaps = "VA14.va1=VA14_INTEL_WINNT51.va1"
or remove transfer_output_remaps completely

and submit the job again, the job immediate is matched , goes into the
run state, and completes as expected.

(condor_q -analyze does not report any errors, as expected)

This is 100% reproducible, and as I said, has only emerged as a problem
after upgrading all machines to 7.2.3. I can only conclude some strange
bug introduced with Macro substitution.
