condor_onStart up HTCondor daemons

Synopsis

condor_on[-help -version]

condor_on[-debug] [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]] [-name hostnamehostname-addr "a.b.c.d:port""a.b.c.d:port"-constraint expression-all] [-daemon daemonname]

Description

condor_onstarts up a set of the HTCondor daemons on a set of machines. This command assumes that the condor_masteris already running on the machine. If this is not the case, condor_onwill fail complaining that it cannot find the address of the master. The command condor_onwith no arguments or with the -daemon masteroption will tell the condor_masterto start up the HTCondor daemons specified in the configuration variable  DAEMON_LIST . If a daemon other than the condor_masteris specified with the -daemonoption, condor_onstarts up only that daemon.

This command cannot be used to start up the condor_masterdaemon.

For security reasons of authentication and authorization, this command requires ADMINISTRATOR level of access.

% condor_on

To start up only the condor_negotiatoron two named machines:

% condor_on  robin cardinal -daemon negotiator

To start up only a daemon within a pool of machines other than the local pool, use the -pooloption. The argument is the name of the central manager for the pool. Note that one or more machines within the pool must be specified as the targets for the command.
