Attempt a security negotiation to determine if it succeeds
condor_ping [-help | -version ]
condor_ping [-debug ] [-address <a.b.c.d:port>] [-pool host name] [-name daemon name] [-type subsystem] [-config filename] [-quiet | -table | -verbose ] token [token […] ]
condor_ping attempts a security negotiation to discover whether the configuration is set such that the negotiation succeeds. The target of the negotiation is defined by one or a combination of the address, pool, name, or type options. If no target is specified, the default target is the condor_schedd daemon on the local machine.
One or more token s may be listed, thereby specifying one or more
authorization level to impersonate in security negotiation. A token is
ALL, an authorization level, a command name, or the
integer value of a command. The many command names and their associated
integer values will more likely be used by experts, and they are defined
in the file
An authorization level may be one of the following strings. If
is listed, then negotiation is attempted for each of these possible

- -config filename
Attempt the negotiation based on the contents of the configuration file contents in file filename.
- -address <a.b.c.d:port>
Target the given IP address with the negotiation attempt.
- -pool hostname
Target the given host with the negotiation attempt. May be combined with specifications defined by name and type options.
- -name daemonname
Target the daemon given by daemonname with the negotiation attempt.
- -type subsystem
Target the daemon identified by subsystem, one of the values of the predefined

The example Unix command
$ condor_ping -address "<127.0.0.1:9618>" -table READ WRITE DAEMON
places double quote marks around the sinful string to prevent the less
than and the greater than characters from causing redirect of input and
output. The given IP address is targeted with 3 attempts to negotiate:
one at the
READ authorization level, one at the
authorization level, and one at the
DAEMON authorization level.
condor_ping will exit with the status value of the negotiation it attempted, where 0 (zero) indicates success, and 1 (one) indicates failure. If multiple security negotiations were attempted, the exit status will be the logical OR of all values.
