Hi Condor Group,
I was wonder if anyone can tell me how condor works when having more then
one submit machine?

The short answer is "like it normally does, but moreso." The long
answer is that each schedd will contact the negotiator to beg for a
startd. We run multiple submit machines in most of our pools without
any problem. The one caveat is that if you do DNS round-robining or
similar, users might be confused when they run condor_q on a machine
that isn't the one they submitted from.

I'll add that the ability to run multiple schedds is a scaling/balancing feature of the architecture. You can put multiple submit machines in a pool or have multiple schedds on a single machine.
