Re: [HTCondor-users] Condor_master aborting because of FIPS mode (Douglas Vechinski)


We don't have the normal tarball that we build for the non-FIPS version.  However, you can get the binaries easily enough by doing this:
	mkdir htcondor-8.8.9
	cd htcondor-8.8.9
	curl -s https://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/yum/fips/rhel7/condor-8.8.9-1.el7.x86_64.rpm | rpm2cpio | cpio -ivd

>From there you can grab everything out of the "usr" subdirectory and put that in your NFS share.  In the config, set "RELEASE_DIR" to point to that location in NFS.  Like you said though you'll still need to do a bunch of stuff on each local machine.  You can put things in the standard spots in /var, or use a different location by specifying "LOCAL_DIR" in the config file.

Either way, since you aren't using the rpm install, you will need to manually create a number of directories and correctly set the ownership and permissions on them as well.  I would probably recommend installing the rpm once somewhere and inspecting /var/(lib|lock|log|run)/condor/ to see what needs to be done. [There's probably a better way but I'm not much of an RPM expert...]

Let us know if that works for you.

    Is there a tarball form for this? 

    The way our current setup is and how I was planning on this one is that all the machines in the pool have a common NFS mount where Condor and user files are located. There is a set of dedicated worker machines for running Condor jobs and a set of individual user machines that just act as submitters. The common Condor configuration file and the local individual machine configuration files are located under this one common NFS place (.../condor/etc/) and then are accessible in this common location. I will still have to configure the starting service on each machine individually. I ultimately may not have root privileges on each machine after setup. Once this pool gets set up it's not very likely that Condor would be updated for a significant  length of time as this will be on as isolated network. If I use the RPMs then I will have to install the RPMs on each machine then since they automatically put the files in a specific location, correct?
