I suggest that HTCondor isn't the right tool for this. Database servers
aren't long-running processes. They're continuously running processes. A
configuration management tool like Puppet or Chef will probably serve
you much better than trying to make HTCondor do what you want.

In the mean time, you can limit the number of usable CPUs with
"NUM_CPUS" in each node's condor_config.local. Set to "NUM_CPUS = 1" to
limit the number of slots to 1. Then restart the condor_master on each node.
