Did you also configure MYTHINGY as a startd attr?
STARTD_ATTRS = $(STARTD_ATTRS) MYTHINGY
That is needed if you want MYTHINGY to show up in condor_status. The configuration that you show below is what is needed to allow MYTHINGY to be changed by condor_config_val -set.
I would like to assign a custom ClassAd to a group of machines and request certain jobs to prefer using that group of machines. A quick Google turns up this web page:
Following the suggestions on that page, I have tried (note the quote in the custom ClassAd)
ALLOW_CONFIG = *
SETTABLE_ATTRS_CONFIG = *
SETTABLE_ATTRS_OWNER = MYTHINGY
MYTHINGY = "blah"
> condor_status -long | grep MYTHINGY
turns up nothing.
My HTCondor version:
$CondorVersion: 8.4.7 Aug 04 2016
$CondorPlatform: X86_64-Ubuntu_14.04 $
Is using custom machine ClassAd a good way of achieving my goals? If so, how do I set custom machine ClassAds?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
