Re: [Condor-users] Machines don't join pool on reboot. Invalid IPin StartLog.

I tried adding dependencies on both dhcp and Netlogon to no effect.
                     sc config condor depend= dhcp

is an easier way to specify dependencies than editing the registry directly. I think it does the same thing.


I suppose I will just live with the problem until either 7.6.3 or 7.6.4 resolve it, unless there are any other simple things to try. I could probably just switch to static IPs if it comes down to it.

A fix should be forthcoming in at the latest 7.6.4.  I do not know if the fix made it into 7.6.3, it might have been pushed in too late.  In the SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\condor key (might be under the WOW64 hive since you're on XP-64), if you create a new multi-string registry value called DependOnService and set the value to Dhcp, the Condor service should wait until the DHCP service is up and running before it starts up.  That should avoid the problem.  There is a fix for the issue in 7.6.3 for Vista and higher machines.

It sounds to me like Condor is starting before the host has obtained a
real IP address. The host is using a link-local address
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apipa) for some reason. I assume the
machine uses DHCP to obtain an IP address? I'm not very familiar with
how this works on Windows, but I believe the solution is to have
Condor start later in the boot process.
