Re: [condor-users] transfer files problem

This should help:

On Windows, the Shadow runs as Local System, just as the shadow runs
as root on Unix. The difference is, in the 6.4 series, the shadow on
Windows never switches to the user priv state, so everything that the
shadow wants to read or write must be accessible explicitly by SYSTEM,
or implicitly by group Administrators.

Now starting in the 6.5 series, the shadow on windows switches to user
priv when it deals with writing log files, reading input, etc, just like
Unix. This is why, before submitting jobs in 6.5, you must store your
account password, so that the shadow knows how to impersonate you.

This also allows you to use windows shares when submitting jobs as well.

I hope this clears up some of your issues.
