Re: [HTCondor-users] help needed to troubleshoot a "SECMAN: FAILED" issue

Hi Jose, here are a few quick troubleshooting questions.

On your central manager machine, can you send the result of a `condor_config_val ALLOW_WRITE_COLLECTOR` command? Do you see your new schedd domain in this list?

On both your schedd and central manager machines, can you send the result of a `condor_config_val ALLOW_DAEMON`? Again, you see your new schedd domain in both those domains.

Can you confirm the pool password you set on the new schedd is the same as other schedds? If you're not sure, try copying the pool password file directly from another schedd that works.

Lastly I'm pretty sure that <a_domain_name> should be your schedd domain, not the production infrastructure.

Please give these a try and let me know, if they don't reveal the problem then I'll ask our security experts to weigh in :)
