Re: [Condor-users] Jobs being shutdown immediately.


Check your PREEMPT _expression_ on the workstation.  It is evaluating to True and causing the job to terminate.

Hope this helps,

We have condor (7.0.5) running just fine at our own studio.  I'm
trying to set it up remotely in

As soon as I try a bigger job, rendering an image for a few minutes
jobs get scheduled,
start, then go down right away into idle.  Wait 4 minutes and the
cycle repeats itself.  I've been
reading manuals for hours, googling, and tearing my hair out.  Here's
