Re: [HTCondor-users] DHCP Service on Windows systems

IANANE (i a not a network engineer). but my understanding is that the reason the HTCondor service want's to start after the DHCP service is so that it can correctly bind to the right IP address if you are using DHCP to assign them.   If you are using fixed IP addresses, then you should be able to remove that startup dependency, but you MAY have to also add that fixed IP address into the HTCondor configuration, 

If you try removing the DHCP dependency, Please let us know what you discover.

Is the Condor startup dependency on the DHCP Client (for Windows systems) only needed if you are using DHCP in your pool? At the moment, the pool I work with is statically assigned IPs, but it seems like Condor doesn’t always start because the DHCP service takes too long to come up. Condor attempts to start before the service comes up, then fails. I tried installing Condor without the DHCP dependency, and it seemed to work; I just wanted to confirm that there is no other dependency on the service.
