Need administrative commands for glideins
Request from CMS.
It is currently not easy to send administrative commands to the glidein Condor daemons.
The problem is authentication/authorization; standard cmdline tools will fail because the security config is not right out of the box.
For some commands, finding the master is also a problem, since they are not propagated to the main Collector.
We should provide wrappers around the standard Condor administrative cmdline tools.
Using different names may be a good idea (e.g. glidein_vacate).

I think I have the full implementation ready in
I had to slightly change the config libraries, to add a new file containing the pilot DNs.
The FE processes keep using the old one without the pilot DNs in them, to minimize security risks.
Once the new file is in place, three new commands are availble in frontend/tools directory;
fetch_glidein_log, glidein_off and enter_frontend_env.
The commands are summarily documented in doc/frontend/troubleshooting html,
while the detailed commands' options are documented in the executables themselves.
