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

I found a weird behaviour today related to this issue.

Job submission works without a problem, but when using the "condor_q" command, no jobs appear after submitting them. If you use the "condor_q -user <username>", same thing. But if you use "condor_q -all", then all users' jobs appear, including your own.

If you do this on the machine where the scheduler is running, this does not happen: running "condor_q" shows that user's queued jobs.

I suppose this is an issue with user mapping across machines, but I thought that the authentication method managed that already.

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

ÂÂÂ 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.

Also you may find the below HOWTO of interest:


Hope the above helps.
