Re: [Condor-users] Condor multi Windows domain authentication

On linux you would use the UID_DOMAIN, setting it to different values in the two domains. I would hope it works on Windows too.

Hi All,
I've hit a problem which I can't see a way through. I have a Windows Domain (DomA) which until now has been where all our Condor servers are running. Now I've begun adding condor servers to a second domain (DomB). Networking is fine between them, the only issue appears to be authentication - DomA and DomB don't trust each other, so quite reasonably, DomA\user can't login/runas on DomB! - When DomA\user submits a job they are matched by many machines in both DomA and DomB. Unfortunately, what seems to be happening is that when a DomB server gets to the point where it tries to start running the job it throws a permissions error.

Does anyone have any experience running Condor in multi-untrusted-domains? I have a feeling I'm going to need to make some big changes, but thought it wise to ask in case I'm missing something? - Or even perhaps my prognosis is completely off?!

Many thanks for any pointers,
