To shut the daemons down cleanly, you can use condor_off -master. Or you can send the condor_master a SIGTERM signal, which has the same effect. Then you have to give the condor_startd and condor_master time to shutdown cleanly. I believe that this can take as much as 2 minutes if the condor_startd is running a job and the job doesnât respond to SIGTERM, (or doesnât respond quickly).

Quick comment on the above:

If you do not want to be patient with running jobs, you could add the "-fast" flag like so:
  condor_off -fast -master  [node name]
which typically shuts things down within a few seconds, killing the job with SIGKILL if needed. This should be what happens when you do a 'systemctl stop condor'.
