We are a multi-pool (with flocking) Condor site with all Windows execute nodes (~4,500) but use linux VMs
(SLES10 server) Central Managers for each pool. We do however have a separate ~15 submit nodes (VMs)
running Windows Server 2008.
One of the requirements is to use Windows. I cannot offer or user Linux based systems.
Thanks for the suggestion though.
