This is kind of a follow-up question to the recent discussion on Condor
and NFS.

If a submit node is using a public share for all of the job related
files, does the submit node need to be on-line after the initial job
submission i.e., could the submit node be a laptop that comes and goes
from the pool and is only online when submitting jobs? But output is
returned either at job end or streamed to the file share?

The submit node needs to be present to keep running jobs running - keep the claim on the remote resource alive. You can make the lease very long, such that the laptop is likely to come back, or more reliably you could do a -remote submit to an infrastructure schedd. You'd then use condor_transfer_data when the job is done.
