Re: [Condor-users] Quick Start Vanilla Condor on Ubuntu 10.04

Hello Condor-users,

Is there a quick start guide for getting condor up and running on a
small ubuntu 10.04 pool? I just want to run processes on other machine's
idle processors (vanilla universe).

Here's where I'm at if anyone can help:

2 identical (virtual) machines with fresh installs of Ubuntu 10.04 with
Condor 7.2.4 installed via 'apt-get install condor'

At this point both machines have their own local condors, and I can
queue and run jobs, no problem.

I edited the /etc/condor/condor_config files thusly:

On machine 1:
CONDOR_HOST = [IP address of machine 2]

On machine 2:

After a reboot (?) condor_status on either machine shows me the slots on
both machines and if they're busy/idle/etc (yay!). However, they still
seem to have different queues. I.e, when I submit from machine 1, I only
see it in condor_q on machine 1, and it only runs on the cpu of machine
1 (but I see the usage in condor_status on machine 2).

I imagine there's a configuration parameter I need to set somewhere, but
I don't know what. Help please?



You probably want ShouldTransferFiles = IF_NEEDED & WhenToTransferOutput = ON_EXIT in your submit file.


7.2.4 is very old at this point, can you upgrade?

Here are some instructions you can follow, they're for Fedora, but if you pretend apt is yum and, with 7.2.4, you throw everything in ~condor/condor_config.local instead of /etc/condor/config.d, everything should work.
