Install Instructions

EL7 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, CentOS 7, Scientific Linux 7)

  1. Setup the repositories
    1. Install EPEL repository (as the root user or use sudo)
      yum install -y https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
    2. Install the HTCondor repository (as the root user or use sudo)
      yum install -y https://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/repo/8.8/el7/release/htcondor-release-8.8-1.el7.noarch.rpm
  2. Install HTCondor (as the root user or use sudo)
    yum install -y minicondor # or condor
    The minicondor is preconfigured for a single node pool. The condor package, for a multi-node pool, requires additional configuration to become functional - please see the HTCondor Manual.
  3. Start it running (as the root user or use sudo)
    systemctl start condor # starts HTCondor now via systemd, or do "condor_master" without systemd
    systemctl enable condor # Make HTCondor start automatically via systemd when booting
  4. Check that it is running (as a normal user)
    condor_q # Should list out the jobs in the pool
    condor_status # Should list out the nodes in the pool
    You may also check HTCondor's systemd status (as the root user or use sudo)
    systemctl status condor
