Re: [Condor-users] Having condor_startd perform actions as root before each job start?

My 1st reaction to this would be job hooks:


Is there a reason this would not work?

Subject: [Condor-users] Having condor_startd perform actions as root before	each job start?

I recently deployed a configuration with SLOTx_EXECUTE
with a separate file system defined for each of 20 slots on an execution 

In the current configuration, condor makes a subdirectory in
the SLOTx_EXECUTE directory and cleans it up on exit, or when
condor restarts.  My question--instead of just doing an
rm -Rf, can I actually have the condor_startd execute
a script, as root,  which removes the old file system and
re-instantiates a whole new file system?
