The config you have looks good but I think it is incomplete.
FS_REMOTE is not in the list of default methods, so even though you have enabled it on the server/receiving side, the client probably isn't attempting to use it. If you have set either SEC_DEFAULT_AUTHENTICATION_METHODS or SEC_CLIENT_AUTHENTICATION_METHODS elsewhere in your config file, you should add it to those settings. If you haven't set those, you should define SEC_CLIENT_AUTHENTICATION_METHODS and list all methods you might potentially use. For example,
SEC_CLIENT_AUTHENTICATION_METHODS = FS, FS_REMOTE, SSL, IDTOKENS, CLAIMTOBE
Let me know if that works for you or if you still are having trouble.
I’ve been trying to get FS_REMOTE auth type to work on my 8.8 cluster, but to no avail. To the point that even with the auth type listed in the config I get the generic error stating “Failed to authenticate with any method” but I don’t then get the 1004 error stating the kind of method used, it is as if the method is not recognized. Here is the config I’m using, am I missing something?
SEC_ADMINISTRATOR_AUTHENTICATION = REQUIRED
SEC_ADMINISTRATOR_AUTHENTICATION_METHODS = FS_REMOTE
SEC_ADMINISTRATOR_INTEGRITY = REQUIRED
ALLOW_ADMINISTRATOR = condor@*, root@*
FS_REMOTE_DIR = /admin
/admin is an NFS mounted directory that root can write to (no_root_squash)
