Re: [Condor-users] Condor 7.4.4 on win7 - starts but does not participate in Condor Grid

This could be an issue where the condor executables start up before the firewall. You can prove this is the case by running net stop condor and nets start condor on a windows machine.
With later versions of Windows, eg Win7,  there is a delayed start option for services rather than automatic start; which fixes this problem. In old days we used to run a script to restart the condor services after the overnight reboot.

> What exactly does "stop working" mean?

Apologies for repeating myself, but I stated that:

>> the service starter is managing to fire up condor_master (becasue all 
>> the executable are running)

>> The win 7 test box no longer seems to be talking back to the master

so by "not working", I mean that ALL the condor executables that get started when the condor service is started have started and are running BUT the machine is not talking back to the master.

My supposition is that the way in which the service is starting sees an access denial to those elements of the environment, hive keys, that would point condor executables to the config file, which is just in the usual (?) place:


and so they have started but don't know where they are supposed to be sending their info.

> What does the master log say?

During the brief period when someone with access to it was in my office and I so I was able to see it, it said that it started the service.

I'll try and get a copy for you.

Here's a question for you though:

 If the condor service executables can't "see" a config file, can  they just start and spin, doing nothing, or should they fail to  start and report the fact?
