Description

If GLEXEC_BIN is set to any value different from NONE (OSG, glite, auto or a path), then the Glidein will fail if no valid glexec binary is found.

If the job does not want GlExec at all (GLIDEIN_Glexec_Use is never), then the Glidein will continue and run without GlExec.
If GlExec is not required but optional (GLIDEIN_Glexec_Use is optional or not set and GLIDEIN_REQUIRE_GLEXEC_USE if false or not set), then the Glidein could continue without using GlExec instead of failing.
Setting GLEXEC_BIN forces to run w/ GlExec unless the Job is explicitly refusing to.

History

#1 Updated by Marco Mambelli 12 months ago

  • Status changed from New to Rejected

GlExec is being retired in favor of Singularity. It is deprecated in OSG.
And this is a known behavior (used and accepted by Factory admins).

So we will not change/fix this.
