I have setup HTCondor on linux cluster. I installed from yum repo, on Centos7.8. CM is dual nic and all exec nodes are on private LAN. I plan to use file transfer method rather than use a shared filesystem. I submit jobs and slots of the exec node are alotted but job fails because of file transfer failure. Below is clipping from the job log
007 (024.009.000) 06/12 01:40:08 Shadow exception!
Error from slot2@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx: Failed to transfer files
0 - Run Bytes Sent By Job
0 - Run Bytes Received By Job
Secondly, I notice an anomaly about SEC_PASSWORD_FILE. In the security config file, the following is the line
SEC_PASSWORD_FILE = /etc/condor/password.d/POOL
However, in the StarterLog of the particular slot on the exec node, the directory is "passwords.d". I am unable to figure out where the directory is set as "passwords.d" instead of "password.d". I grepped through the config files, failed to find.
Below are more lines from the StarterLog of the slog (on the exec node)

Where could it be picking up different setting than what is in the file in config.d? Or any other error?
Thanks for helping out!
