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

what does condor_status -negotiator say?

The first thing condor_userprio does is try and fetch the negotiator ad from the collector so it can check
the negotiator version and see if it should talk to the collector or the negotiator for accounting information. 

When it can't get a negotiator ad from the collector, this is the error it prints out. 

You could also have a look in the collector log to see if the negotiator ad is being received.   Perhaps
the collector is refusing it because of your ALLOW_WRITE setting?

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

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
Last Priority Update:  3/27 08:41
                          Effective   Priority   Res   Total Usage  Time
User Name                  Priority    Factor   In Use (wghted-hrs) Last

Number of users: 1                                 208    198133.14

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.
