Re: [HTCondor-users] HTCondor on multiple NICs - how to force HTCondor to use eth1 over eth0?

I am running HTCondor on a machine with two NICs. Unfortunately I do not control the network configuration on that machine.

Its network is setup as follows:

eth0: (static IP)
eth1: (dynamic IP)

HTCondor keeps using eth0 and I could not find a way to make it use eth1. I’ve read the Networking section in the manual about NETWORK_INTERFACE = <IP address> but what if the IP is dynamic?

I really need something like NETWORK_INTERFACE =, or NETWORK_INTERFACE = eth1

Is there a way to configure HTCondor to do this?

According to the HTCondor v8.4 Manual, you should be able to do
Or alternatively 

Note that after changing NETWORK_INTERFACE, it is not enough to just do a condor_reconfig; you must kill off and then totally restart the HTCondor service.  

See http://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/manual/v8.4/3_3Configuration.html#21565

Hope the above helps,
