Hi all

We have Linux, OSX and Windows machines in our condor pool.   So far, 
job submissions were done from a some OSX and Linux machines only, which 
worked fine.

Trying to submit a job from  a Windows machine( resulted 
in this error message:
ERROR: Failed to connect to local queue manager

and in the schedd log file:
"authorization of did not result in a valid mapped user 
name, which is required for this command"

I presumed this points to our security mapfile mapping "condor" and 
"admin" users only.  We have the following security config entries
That's part of the reason.

The problem here is that now that you've added a Windows machine, your
list of methods the client can use doesn't include the default Windows
authentication mechanism, NTSSPI.  I would set:

  SEC_CLIENT_AUTHENTICATION_METHODS = fs, ntsspi, ssl, password

And you should be all set.

Longer answer:  Behind the scenes, the Linux and OSX daemons include FS as a
default (and not NTSSPI), and Windows daemons include NTSSPI (and not FS).
Your client list can include as many as you like... the server will reconcile
the two lists, so there's no "danger" in including NTSSPI on Linux and FS on
