Re: [HTCondor-users] Singularity containers setting --pwd option to scratch dir

Hi Greg,

The file transfer parameters were set correctly. It looks like the SINGULARITY_TARGET_DIR needed to be set to /srv--but why is /srv the convention for setting the working directory? Is this a singularity convention or a condor thing? If so, would it be worth setting this as a default?

We have some users running singularity containers on a condor cluster (running 8.8.15) and most things seem to work except for setting the directory running the job (--pwd) to the scratch dir (or TMPDIR). The default is for job to run in the user's home directory. Looking at https://htcondor.readthedocs.io/en/latest/admin-manual/singularity-support.html, how can this be changed?


I think this can happen when file transfer is off. If you force file transfer on with

should_transfer_files = yes

when_to_transfer_output = on_exit

Do you get the corrrect directory?
