condor_token_request_auto_approve

generate a new rule to automatically approve token requests

Synopsis

condor_token_request_auto_approve -netblock network -lifetime val [-pool pool_name] [-name hostname] [-type type] [-debug]

condor_token_request_auto_approve [-help ]

Description

condor_token_request_auto_approve will install a temporary auto-approval rule for token requests. Any token request matching the auto-approval rule will be immediately approved instead of requiring administrator approval

Automatic request approval is intended to help administrators initially setup their cluster. To install a new rule, you must specify both a network and a lifetime; requests are only approved if they come from that given source network, are within the rule lifetime, are limited to ADVERTISE_SCHEDD or ADVERTISE_STARTD permissions, and are for the condor identity. When a condor_startd or condor_schedd is started and cannot communicate with the collector, they will automatically generate token requests that meet the last two conditions.

It is not safe to enable auto-approval when users have access to any of the involved hosts or networks.

To remove auto-approval rules, run condor_reconfig against the remote daemon.:

By default, condor_token_request_auto_approve will install rules at the local condor_collector; by specifying a combination of -pool, -name, or -type, the tool can request tokens in other pools, on other hosts, or different daemon types.

Options

-debug

Causes debugging information to be sent to stderr, based on the value of the configuration variable TOOL_DEBUG.

-help

Display brief usage information and exit.

-lifetime value

Specify the lifetime, in seconds, for the auto-request rule to be valid.

-name hostname

Request a token from the daemon named hostname in the pool. If not specified, the locally-running daemons will be used.

-netblock network

A netblock of the form IP_ADDRESS / SUBNET_MASK specifying the source of authorized requests. Examples may include 129.93.12.0/24 or 10.0.0.0/26.

-pool pool_name

Request a token from a daemon in a non-default pool pool_name.

-type type

Request a token from a specific daemon type type. If not given, a condor_collector is used.

Examples

To automatically approve token requests to the default condor_collector coming from the 10.0.0.0/26 subnet for the next 10 minutes:

% condor_token_request_auto_approve -lifetime 600 -netblock 10.0.0.0/26
Successfully installed auto-approval rule for netblock 10.0.0.0/26 with lifetime of 0.17 hours
Remote daemon reports no un-approved requests pending.

Exit Status

condor_token_request_auto_approve will exit with a non-zero status value if it fails to communicate with the remote daemon or has insufficient authorization. Otherwise, it will exit 0.
