Re: [HTCondor-users] Configuring a default scheduler address

Hi, this is related to my previous thread about setting up File System Remote authentication, as it is part of my goal of using a single scheduler for the whole cluster, but I decided to ask separately as it is a separate question.

I want to achieve the following behaviour: all jobs submitted through "condor_submit" from any machine in my cluster should be sent to the same scheduler in a set machine. Similarly, when using "condor_q" this scheduler should be queried. Usually this is achieved using the "-name" option in both cases and specifying the address there, but I want to make it transparent to users so they do not have to type it out every time or remember to include this in their scripts.

Hi Javier,

I believe what you want to do is set SCHEDD_HOST config knob in the condor_config file(s) on your machines.  For instance, if your config has

    SCHEDD_HOST = submit05.foo.edu

Then whenever users enter "condor_q", "condor_rm", "condor_submit", etc, it will default to using the schedd at "submit05.foo.edu", just as if you had used the "-name" argument.  This also works with the Python API (bindings) as expected.

Hope the above helps.
