Re: [HTCondor-users] VM Universe user advice?

Here is what I use for a vmware job::
[nyehle@nighthawk] (5)$ cat vmtestnfy.sub
universe = vm
executable = linux.iso
vm_type = vmware
 vm_networking = true
vmware_dir = vm2
vm_memory = 4000
vmware_should_transfer_files = YES
vmware_snapshot_disk = false
request_memory = $(vm_memory) + 4
log = vmtest_$(Cluster)_$(Process).log
notification = NEVER
where my vm images are in the vm2 directory submitted as the job:
[nyehle@nighthawk] (7)$ ls -l /scratch/vm2
total 7718576
-rw-r--r-- 1 nyehle nyehle   67330048 Feb 26  2013 linux.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 nyehle nyehle       8684 Jan 25 18:05 v-node.nvram
-rw-r--r-- 1 nyehle nyehle 7836467200 Jan 25 18:05 v-node.vmdk
-rw-r--r-- 1 nyehle nyehle          0 Jun 18  2013 v-node.vmsd
-rw-r--r-- 1 nyehle nyehle       2874 Jan 27 19:31 v-node.vmx
-rw-r--r-- 1 nyehle nyehle       3426 Aug 12 09:10 v-node.vmxf

the vm will have to boot up, run your work, and then shutdown on its own in
order for this to work like a normal job.

Some of my users are starting to play with the idea of using the VM
Universe. We (collectively) have no experience with this and are looking
for pointers for the users on How To Do It Most Effectively.

Does anyone have any favorite documentation on this I can share with
them? I've already handed them the URL to the tutorial from CondorWeek
(2010, IIRC).
