    It just so happens that I set it up so the executable in step (2)

    Here's my problem: I'm using vanilla universe, and setting
    should_transfer_files=no and submitting the job to run on a
    machine with a different file system. The job won't get run since
    my.filesystemdomain != target.filesystemdomain, which appears to
    be a default requirements test.

condor_submit will add in the default requirement for filesystemdomain only if you don't explicitly set it in the job's requirements.

The idea is to make a requirements statement that references FileSystemDomain and yet always evals to true. Something like the following should work for you:

should_transfer_files = never
requirements = FileSystemDomain != "green_eggs_and_ham"

regards and welcome to condor-users!
