(edit)
Previously, condor_job_server could have exited with an exception. This occurred if no JOB_SERVER_LOG value was defined. With this update, JOB_SERVER_LOG contains a default setting and there is no need to configure the parameter.

Description Jan Sarenik 2010-08-18 10:29:21 UTC
# condor_job_server 
ERROR "No 'JOB_SERVER_LOG' parameter specified." at line 161 in file dprintf_config.c
Aborted (core dumped)

condor-qmf-7.4.4-0.9.el5

How reproducible: 100%

Comment 1 Matthew Farrellee 2010-08-18 11:37:37 UTC
Were you using wallaby to configure the JobServer?

If not, you must specify JOB_SERVER_LOG in configuration yourself.

Note:
 o The condor-qmf package could lay down config that has JOB_SERVER_LOG set
 o The core probably comes from ABORT_ON_EXCEPTION, please verify

Comment 2 Jan Sarenik 2010-08-18 11:49:29 UTC
I am aware of not using wallaby. The main reason for reporting
it is the coredump. I do not think condor_job_server operates
accordingly to the problem and that it uses the right way to
say a line in config file is missing.

Comment 3 Jan Sarenik 2010-08-18 12:27:55 UTC
Yes, it is exception, GDB backtrace says:

Comment 4 Matthew Farrellee 2010-08-18 13:42:07 UTC
core is a false positive because of ABORT_ON_EXCEPTION=TRUE

The condor-qmf package should provide config that avoids this EXCEPT.

Comment 5 Jan Sarenik 2010-08-18 13:48:21 UTC
Aah, thank you for explanation. Closing as NOTABUG.

Comment 6 Jan Sarenik 2010-08-18 13:50:11 UTC
Sorry, only when you wrote about it I realized that lately
I added line "ABORT_ON_EXCEPTION=True" to the config file...

Comment 7 Jan Sarenik 2010-08-18 13:54:26 UTC
Ressurecting as this bug will serve "as an RFE for better OOTB config"
as Matt wrote.
