Re: [HTCondor-users] HTCondor in an OpenStack instance

Right now, I just want to be able to start up a pool on an m6i.xlarge instance to run my own testing or teach researchers how to use HTCondor.

Ah. If you're not trying to spin up or tear down the pool from HTCondor, and you're not (presently) interested in dynamically expanding said pool with OpenStack instances, I would recommend just spinning up a VM (or three -- make sure they share a subnet and configure their firewalls to allow inbound port 9618*) and pretending they're physical infrastructure for purposes of following the manual's usual instructions (use get_htcondor unless you have a good reason).

It can be helpful to split the exec node away from the submit node when teaching because that will force the user to be "good" about specifying file transfer. On the other hand, a "mini" (all-in-one) installation on a VM could easily be turned into an AMI-equivalent and might be easier for a learner to start self-service, if that's something you want them to be able to do.
