Re: [Condor-users] about setting up dedicated resources in Condor Windows cluster

1. You do not need to setup a Condor "dedicated scheduler" to use dedicated resources. The only reason you would need to setup a dedicated scheduler in Condor is if you must submit parallel universe jobs, i.e. jobs that require multiple machines at the same time. Typical examples of this are MPI or PVM jobs, usually on Unix - folks using MPI on Windows are fairly rare. If you do not need to use parallel universe, e.g. just want to submit loads of vanilla universe jobs, you do not need to set this up. Maybe the "dedicated scheduler" in Condor would be better named "the parallel scheduler" :).
