[Condor-users] Hostname problem, OSX 10.5

Hi all,

I've run into a problem on Mac OSX 10.5 concerning the hostname and IP address that Condor registers when it starts. I've written a LaunchDaemon plist (below) to launch condor_master on boot on the worker machines. However, it seems to be binding to -- when it registers with the Collector I get errors (from the Collector) such as:

DC_AUTHENTICATE: session theCollector:1254:1349141429:44 NOT FOUND; this session was requested by <> with return address <>

The MasterLog on the worker machine confirms the daemons have bound to AFAICS this looks like the daemons on the worker machine have come up before networking was available (we assign our hostnames and IP's by DHCP) and hence grabbed the loopback address.

Does anyone have any tips for how I might delay the start of the Condor daemons until after networking is up, or prevent them from binding to the loopback address?



Example .plist:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd";>
<plist version="1.0">
