Re: [Condor-users] not seeing Windows 7 CPUs


I think I am having a similar issue.  I have about 50 windows machines, most of them windows 7, some XP.  Some (about 6) of the windows 7 machines do not list any slots for a condor_status command.  All of the XP machines function normally.  The startd, master, and kbbd daemons are running, and show up in task manager.  I checked startd logs, master logs...nothing out of the ordinary.

I haven't been able to find a solution thus far and have been meaning to post, so when I saw your post, and saw that someone else had a similar problem I thought I would piggyback onto your post (hope it's OK).

Anyway, anybody else encountered this, and/or found a solution?  Any additional logs/tests that can be performed?

Subject: [Condor-users] not seeing Windows 7 CPUs

I have Condor 7.8.4 installed on a Windows 7 machine as master and have been submitting jobs from it to three Windows XP machines on the network. These jobs have been making use of all 12 of the available CPUs for the last week. No problem.

Today I installed the same version of Condor on a Windows 7 machine to add it as another client. After installation and restarting, its CPUs are still not appearing in the condor_status output along with the others, whether condor_status is run from that machine or the master, so of course, no jobs run on this "new" machine either.

What is special about Windows 7 that the machine's CPUs are not recognized?

I have looked around for an answer to this question and the only thing that seemed related was the issue of credentials. The queued jobs do database queries against the master computer and then process the retrieved data into an output file. The program needs to log into the database server, but doesn't require local user-restricted resources and can run whether the system is idle or not, so should not require special user credentials.
