Re: [Condor-users] GSI X509 support in 7.4.1 on WinXP


I just reconfigured an XP client to force GSI authentication only:


And got:

AUTHENTICATE: unsupported method: 32, failing.

Seems GSI is not included in the Windows build, so the question becomes: can I recompile and enable it? Or does it simply not exist? I found some threads from 2004 saying there is no GSI for Windows so Condor can not support it. Is that still the case?

Trying to use the following setup: condor_submit -> remote gt5 resource with Condor as LRM -> WinXP execute node, I get following error in the remote StarterLog on the Windows clients:

The job seems to restart over and over but doesn't fail permanently or log anything useful. I don't get any errors on the submit side. Linux nodes successfully complete jobs. There is no shared file system.

Condor version used is 7.4.1. Manual section 3.6.3 says GSI is included as default authentication mechanism on the Windows platform. Is it?

Am I doing something wrong?
