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

These suggestions may be a little basic, but worth a quick check.

1) Have you both made sure to turn off any Windows firewalls?

2) What do you point to with your CONDOR_HOST setting in your
condor_config file?  One thing you might try is to ping that machine,
just to make sure they can communicate properly.

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.
