Re: [HTCondor-users] Submitting ABAQUS jobs to HTCondor cluster

However, when an ABAQUS job is submitted, we get an error in the *.err file "ABAQUS Error: Launcher executable "condor_exec.exe" has not been found." Our submit script is pasted below.Â

What is the correct way to submit an abaqus job to condor?

HTCondor renames the executable to "condor_exec.exe", which sometimes causes problems for programs which look at their argv[0].

I suspect this is the problem here with Abaqus.ÂÂÂ Try writing a small shell wrapper called runAbaqus.sh that looks like


exec abaqus "$@"

and then change the Executable line of your submit file to

Executable = runAbaqus.sh

and add the /opt/ABAQUS/Command/abaqus file to your transfer_input_files list.


We have ssh-askpass installed; two-way password-less login is enabled between master and compute nodes.
