Re: [Condor-users] Using NFS File systems in condor jobs(windows)


I am not entirely clear on what you are asking, but our pool is made of only Windows OS and our CM is located on a 2008 Windows OS server. We work a lot with spatial data sets and therefore files can easily exceed GBs. Therefore, almost all work we do requires not transferring files and reading and writing files on a NSF. Because each machine may have its own unique mapped drives, you need to always use UNC paths. Second, every machine in the pool requires access to the file server. I have set up permissions via AD OU group policies for a condor machine group. These machines are given access to the NSF.

Hopefully this is of help,
