My submit file ...

universe = vanilla
requirements = Arch == "INTEL" && OpSYS == "WINNT51"
environment = PATH=C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya8.5\bin;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;c:\condor\bin
executable = \\software-3\test\job.bat
run_as_owner = TRUE
output = RenderThis.out
error = RenderThis.err

getenv = true

The exec bat file is

I am trying to setup a maya render farm using condor. I submit a job to render 20 frames, the job executes on a single exec node,

But i wish that the job gets distributed and all exec nodes and each render 1 frame each, insated of the entire job just being handed over to a single exec node.

Can anyone help me out with this .?

I think this is really a question for someone with Maya exepertise.  Condor doesn't know anything specific about Maya.  Once you know what the Maya commands are render specific frames you can then setup a parameterized classad (or even DAG if appropriate) that will split up the commands into independent jobs that will be executed across your cluster.

Anyway, as I said, I think your question should be directed towards Maya documentation first (or Google), then Maya mailing lists second.  Once you have the commands you want, if you can't figure out how to get them split into separate Condor jobs, come back to this list.
