Re: [HTCondor-users] Running Condor without root privileges

Yes, the basic functions of the STARTD will work, but most of the process-isolation mechanisms will be disabled.  In particular


  • All jobs (and the daemons) will run as the user that started the HTCondor master process
  • HTCondor will not be able to use cgroups to limit job memory, etc

Is it possible to run a Condor execute node (DAEMON_LIST = MASTER, STARTD) without root privileges?
