condor_configureand condor_installrefer to a single script that installs and/or configures HTCondor on Unix machines. As the names imply, condor_installis intended to perform a HTCondor installation, and condor_configureis intended to configure (or reconfigure) an existing installation. Both will run with Perl 5.6.0 or more recent versions. condor_configure(and condor_install) are designed to be run more than one time where required. It can install HTCondor when invoked with a correct configuration via condor_install or condor_configure --install or, it can change the configuration files when invoked via condor_configure Note that changes in the configuration files do not result in changes while HTCondor is running. To effect changes while HTCondor is running, it is necessary to further use the condor_reconfigor condor_restartcommand. condor_reconfigis required where the currently executing daemons need to be informed of configuration changes. condor_restartis required where the options -- make-personal-condoror -- typeare used, since these affect which daemons are running. Running condor_configureor condor_installwith no options results in a usage screen being printed. The -- helpoption can be used to display a full help screen. Within the options given below, the phrase release directoriesis the list of directories that are released with HTCondor. This list includes: bin , etc , examples , include , lib , libexec , man , sbin , sql and src .
--help Print help screen and exit --usage Print short usage and exit --install Perform installation, assuming that the current working directory contains the release directories. Without further options, the configuration is that of a Personal HTCondor, a complete one-machine pool. If used as an upgrade within an existing installation directory, existing configuration files and local directory are preserved. This is the default behavior of condor_install . --install-dir=<path> Specifies the path where HTCondor should be installed or the path where it already is installed. The default is the current working directory. --prefix=<path> This is an alias for -install-dir. --local-dir=<path> Specifies the location of the local directory, which is the directory that generally contains the local (machine-specific) configuration file as well as the directories where HTCondor daemons write their run-time information ( spool , log , execute ). This location is indicated by the LOCAL_DIR variable in the configuration file. When installing (that is, if -installis specified), condor_configurewill properly create the local directory in the location specified. If none is specified, the default value is given by the evaluation of $(RELEASE_DIR)/local.$(HOSTNAME) . During subsequent invocations of condor_configure(that is, without the --install option), if the --local-dir option is specified, the new directory will be created and the log , spool and execute directories will be moved there from their current location. --make-personal-condor Installs and configures for Personal HTCondor, a fully-functional, one-machine pool. --bosco Installs and configures Bosco, a personal HTCondor that submits jobs to remote batch systems. --type= < submit, execute, manager > One or more of the types may be listed. This determines the roles that a machine may play in a pool. In general, any machine can be a submit and/or execute machine, and there is one central manager per pool. In the case of a Personal HTCondor, the machine fulfills all three of these roles. --central-manager=<hostname> Instructs the current HTCondor installation to use the specified machine as the central manager. This modifies the configuration variable COLLECTOR_HOST to point to the given host name. The central manager machine's HTCondor configuration needs to be independently configured to act as a manager using the option -type=manager. --owner=<ownername> Set configuration such that HTCondor daemons will be executed as the given owner. This modifies the ownership on the log , spool and execute directories and sets the CONDOR_IDS value in the configuration file, to ensure that HTCondor daemons start up as the specified effective user. This is only applicable when condor_configureis run by root. If not run as root, the owner is the user running the condor_configurecommand. --maybe-daemon-owner If -owneris not specified and no appropriate user can be found to run Condor, then this option will allow the daemon user to be selected. This option is rarely needed by users but can be useful for scripts that invoke condor_configure to install Condor. --install-log=<file> Save information about the installation in the specified file. This is normally only needed when condor_configure is called by a higher-level script, not when invoked by a person. --overwrite Always overwrite the contents of the sbin directory in the installation directory. By default, condor_install will not install if it finds an existing sbin directory with HTCondor programs in it. In this case, condor_install will exit with an error message. Specify -overwriteor -backupto tell condor_install what to do. This prevents condor_install from moving an sbin directory out of the way that it should not move. This is particularly useful when trying to install HTCondor in a location used by other things ( /usr , /usr/local , etc.) For example: condor_install -prefix=/usrwill not move /usr/sbin out of the way unless you specify the -backupoption. The -backupbehavior is used to prevent condor_install from overwriting running daemons - Unix semantics will keep the existing binaries running, even if they have been moved to a new directory. --backup Always backup the sbin directory in the installation directory. By default, condor_install will not install if it finds an existing sbin directory with HTCondor programs in it. In this case, condor_install with exit with an error message. You must specify -overwriteor -backupto tell condor_install what to do. This prevents condor_install from moving an sbin directory out of the way that it should not move. This is particularly useful if you're trying to install HTCondor in a location used by other things ( /usr , /usr/local , etc.) For example: condor_install -prefix=/usrwill not move /usr/sbin out of the way unless you specify the -backupoption. The -backupbehavior is used to prevent condor_install from overwriting running daemons - Unix semantics will keep the existing binaries running, even if they have been moved to a new directory. --ignore-missing-libs Ignore missing shared libraries that are detected by condor_install . By default, condor_install will detect missing shared libraries such as libstdc++.so.5 on Linux; it will print messages and exit if missing libraries are detected. The --ignore- missing-libswill cause condor_install to not exit, and to proceed with the installation if missing libraries are detected. --force This is equivalent to enabling both the --overwriteand --ignore-missing-libscommand line options. --no-env-scripts By default, condor_configurewrites simple sh and csh shell scripts which can be sourced by their respective shells to set the user's PATH and CONDOR_CONFIG environment variables. This option prevents condor_configurefrom generating these scripts. --env-scripts-dir=<directory> By default, the simple shand cshshell scripts (see --no-env-scriptsfor details) are created in the root directory of the HTCondor installation. This option causes condor_configureto generate these scripts in the specified directory. --credd Configure the the condor_credddaemon (credential manager daemon). --verbose Print information about changes to configuration variables as they occur.
condor_configurewill exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with a nonzero value upon failure.
Install HTCondor on the machine (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be the pool's central manager. On machine1, within the directory that contains the unzipped HTCondor distribution directories: % condor_install --type=submit,execute,manager This will allow the machine to submit and execute HTCondor jobs, in addition to being the central manager of the pool. To change the configuration such that email@example.com is an execute-only machine (that is, a dedicated computing node) within a pool with central manager on firstname.lastname@example.org, issue the command on that email@example.com from within the directory where HTCondor is installed: % condor_configure --firstname.lastname@example.org --type=execute To change the location of the LOCAL_DIR directory in the configuration file, do (from the directory where HTCondor is installed): % condor_configure --local-dir=/path/to/new/local/directory This will move the log , spool , execute directories to /path/to/new/local/directory from the current local directory.
