Re: [HTCondor-users] Condor_kbdd.exe crashes/doesn't start if no network is available

I'm not sure how easy it is on Windows, but here at UW-Madison we keep a local git repository of the poolwide configuration on each node. We have hooks that run a git pull whenever a condor_reconfig is triggered; this way we ensure everything is as up to date as possible, but won't fail if it can't access remote configuration files. I did a talk about this at HTCondor Week 2016:

I happen to use salt but I'm sure you can do this with any of them
(chef, puppet, ...): push one "pool" config file to every node, push
specialized "node" config files dep. on the properties you set on the
host, fire condor_reconfig after the update. And yes: I'm doing it
because of the problems with having one config file on a network share.
