What value do you get back from
condor_config_val -v EXECUTE
do you have an environment variable override for EXECUTE? i.e. does running
return anything other than "Environment variable _condor not defined" ?
Did you try restarting condor? If condor is running as a service, then
to stop condor, then
net start condor
to start it back up again.
according to the docs, a reconfig is required, but a restart is not, but
it would be helpful to know if
a restart caused condor it to pick up the change or not.

BLUF: I want to change the execute directory for multiple nodes in our cluster, but the config changes I've used do not seem to be working.
- Drive C on some of the nodes does not have a lot of space, executable is not checkpointing, but is creating several GB of intermediate files, and sending several 10^2MB back to submitting node. So I need to ensure I don't crush the system drive on these nodes.
What I've done so far:
- Searched mail list archive and got no love--bad search skills?
- Execute dir line in config file was: EXECUTE = $(LOCAL_DIR)/execute, and is now commented out
- Execute dir line is now: EXECUTE = G:\CondorExecute. I used the backslash following the convention in the config file defining where the condor dir is on the system disk. I've also tried the unix-style forward slash, and did perceive an effect either.
- Drive G in this case is an attached drive, directory has write and modify perms for users as well as SYSTEM
-issued a condor_reconfig command after change
- jobs still being executed in c:\condor\execute instead of the drive g:\CondorExecute
Anyone able to teach me where I am going wrong?
