Re: [HTCondor-users] Error opening history file /var/lib/condor/spool/history: No such file or directory

Hi Peter,

I don't think I changed anything. I use some provisioning system so it just drop and replace.

user@precise32:/etc/condor$ ls -la
total 128
drwxr-xr-x  3 1003 1003   4096 Feb  5 07:41 .
drwxr-xr-x 97 root root   4096 Feb  5 07:30 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 1003 1003 111045 Dec  4 21:43 condor_config
-rw-r--r--  1 1003 1003    947 Feb  5 07:28 condor_config.local
drwxr-xr-x  2 1003 1003   4096 Dec  4 21:44 config.d

I had very similar problem like this one from mailing list and so my config local looks very similar:
https://gist.github.com/yeukhon/4715522    my config local

Is there some permission? All I did was sudo dpkg -i condor_reelase_7.9.2.deb and then restart condor

Sorry for bothering.

I have been using this for a month. I was building new vms and testing these vms. In the last several days, I noticed I am getting this error in all my new vms.

Error opening history file /var/lib/condor/spool/history: No such file or directory

I created both file and directory but I get this:
user@precise32:$ condor_history
 ID     OWNER          SUBMITTED   RUN_TIME     ST COMPLETED   CMD            

Any idea why?

The archives can be found at:

The history file is generated by the condor_schedd process once Completed or Removed jobs exit out of the queue. The config value is HISTORY and typically is set to $(SPOOL)/history. Perhaps there is some missing configuration in your new VMs?

The condor_history file tool found your empty file but there is not content in it so it just reports the column headers and returns.
