Re: [HTCondor-users] condor_userprio: Can't locate negotiator in local pool

Hi Lee,

Re the below, are both the central manager (condor_negotiator, condor_collector) and condor_userprio at version 8.6.x, or is one still much older than the other? What does "condor_status -negotiator" show?

The reason I ask is things have changed over the years with regards to condor_userprio: Long ago, condor_userprio found the negotiator via NEGOTIATOR_HOST in the config, but IIRC for several years the condor_negotiator now advertises itself to the condor_collector and condor_userprio does a query to the collector to find it. Also, in current versions of HTCondor the user priorities are advertised to the collector, meaning condor_userprio only needs to contact the negotiator in order to make a change - just displaying the current priorities only requires communication with the collector. Perhaps your condor_negotiator is still running an old version?

We just updated our condor pool using the condor-8.6.1-1.el7.x86_64 RPM
and everything is working except condor_userprio is slightly unhappy:

~ [76] ; condor_userprio
condor_userprio: Can't locate negotiator in local pool

The command works when I give it the name of the CONDOR_HOST:

~ [77] ; condor_userprio -pool redacted

The config files haven't changed - CONDOR_HOST and NEGOTIATOR_HOST
appear to be properly set:

~ [78] ; grep ^CONDOR_HOST /etc/condor/condor_config
CONDOR_HOST             = redacted.ee.washington.edu
~ [79] ; grep ^NEGOTIATOR_HOST /etc/condor/condor_config

condor_config_val(1) confirms these settings are applied.

Any hints on how I can fix this would be appreciated.
