Re: [Condor-users] DAGMAN, 7.4.0, and NFS

I changed the generic configuration file to the one included in 7.4.0, but my pool specific configurations were unchanged (except for HOSTALLOW_WRITE -> ALLOW_WRITE).

I don't see any relevant references to NFS in the generic configuration file. Did a default value change somewhere?

I recently tried updating one of my pools to Condor 7.4.0. After doing so, dagman jobs that used to submit just fine with 7.3.x get the following error:

11/21 12:31:24 ERROR: log file foo.log is on NFS.

I've tried setting in the pool's configuration file

## Allow NFS Log files

and passing -allowlogerror to dagman, neither of which seem to have any

While I understand log files on NFS filesystems are dangerous and unstable, we've run these jobs thousands of times without problems. I'd like some
mechanism for making this a warning instead of an error.

Set DAGMAN_LOG_ON_NFS_IS_ERROR to false in your configuration, that will
let things run...

(I'm surprised that you ran into this upgrading from 7.3.x, unless your configuration changed in the upgrade. The check for DAG log files on NFS has been in place for a long time, since 6.9.x or so if I remember right.)
