Re: [HTCondor-users] HTCondor ClassAd attributes list in python bindings

Maybe my question about sourcing a file to define the environment for a job has been misunderstood.

To be more concrete I explain the real problem. I need to run some jobs on Condor that basically call an OpenFOAM solver (simpleFoam) to do a fluido dynamic simulation. 

In order to work with OpenFOAM I need to source a bashrc file installed in the worker machine (this file: https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.2.x/blob/master/etc/bashrc). Even if the file is sourced system-wide in /etc/bash.bashrc, whenever I run a simulation as a condor job the file is not source by the condor user. 

So i'm wondering if there's a way to source that file "condor-wide" or on a per-job basis (my job executable is a Python script).

Thank you all for your help,

Now i would need to source a file with some others environment variables definition (actually an OpenFOAM environment definition). is it possible to source a bash file from condor configuration file?

This is covered here:




The script output is parsed as configuration variables.

You can use STARTD_ATTRS to produce the labels (or, if they aren't static, use a STARTD_CRON to launch a script which outputs the labels) which appear in the machine's classad.

Then, you can use Requirements (http://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/manual/v8.1/2_5Submitting_Job.html#SECTION00352000000000000000) in the jobs to make sure a given job requires a particular label to be present.
