Re: [Condor-users] Configure server to only run if specific requirement exists in submit file?

Couldn't you just add a custom requirement in your submit file

for example:

Requirements = (Opsys == "WINNT51" && ARCH == "INTEL") && PERL_VERSION = 5.10.1

And then on your machine add the following in the local config file


Now your machine classad will advertise the attribute PERL_VERSION and jobs can match against that.

Hi all,
Do you know whether it's possible to configure a server to only accept jobs if they have certain requirements (or other ClassAds) in their submit file?

I understand how to force a server to only accept jobs from specific users, but would like more flexibility because:
1, Some software is only licensed on a few servers so I would like to be able to make some of these servers dedicated to that software
2, I would like to be able to configure a certain server as a test server but in such a way that means I don't have to create a new pool for it.

Many thanks for any ideas!
