Re: [condor-users] Condor newbie question

I'm attempting to install condor on a couple of windows boxes, one running
win2k and one running winxp pro. I tried 6.4 and 6.5 with the same results:

One machine was set up to create a new pool and one was set up to join the
existing pool. Condor_status sees both machines, but any attempt to submit a
job results in the job being queued to the local machine. It never gets
started on the other machine!

use "condor_q -analyze" to see if your job is rejecting the machine, if so make sure that your job submission file contains all the operating systems you want your program to run on. By default it puts the same architecture and operating system into the description file so if you have two flavours of windows it might not start. Here is what we added to all "*.sub" files (condor 6.4),

# Define all supported flavours of windows
Windows = (OpSys == "WINNT40" || OpSys == "WINNT50" || OpSys == "WINNT51")

# Add any requirements(memory, disk) for the job, that the machine that executes
Requirements = $(Windows)

Hope that helps
