Re: [HTCondor-users] Remote Submit Scheds with grid submission to CondorCE

Hi Thomas,

I can think of maybe one complication here:

How would you distribute each users' DN to the gridmap files at the various CEs you want to enable them to submit to? This is why the grid submission infrastructure exists. i.e., to abstract away this problem at the individual user-level such that each CE only needs to know about and trust the grid infrastructure that submits jobs on behalf of the users.

Hi Thomas,
could it be as simple as using a JDL like this:

cmd = ...
output = ...
error = ...
log = ...
+TransferOutput = ""
periodic_hold = ...
periodic_remove = ...
universe = grid
grid_resource = condor htc-ce.some.domain htc-ce.some.domain:9619
use_x509userproxy = true
environment = ...
queue 1

That is how ALICE let a local HTCondor service deal with all
the intricacies of handling jobs for remote HTCondor CEs.

Maybe I am missing something?

Hi all,

does somebody has maybe already experiences with combining remote
submission with gridward submission to CondorCEs?

Thing is, that we have a number of nodes for our users, that act as
remote submitters to the actual schedulers.

Now it would come handy, not only to submit to the local Condor but also
allow our users to do submissions into the Grid targeting CondorCEs.
Since the Schedd would have to do the authentication through the users'
proxy X509, it would need to be passed forward like kerberos etc.
And are there other caveats, that might need to be considered in such a

Maybe somebody has already a working similar setup?
