Re: [Condor-users] Windows and load_profile

Can someone explain how load_profile submit file command works? Does this load a profile on the execute machine if the profile exists or is it loading the user's profile into the window station from the submit machine.

Hi Mike,

It loads a user profile on the execute machine. It can't be used with run_as_owner so it won't ever load your submitting user's profile. If you don't set this or set it to False you get a leaner execution environment for the job without the user registry access and environment settings. If you have software that expects to be able to access a user hive in the registry turning this to true usually solves the issue. Example: I find it necessary to use this with jobs that want to run Excel-based work.
