Amazon Web Services is deprecating support for the Node.js 4.3 runtime, used by condor_annex, on July 31, 2018. If you ran the condor_annex setup command with a previous version, you must update your account to use the new runtime. Accounts setup with version 8.79 (or later) of HTCondor will use the new runtime. To update an already-setup account, follow the instructions below.


We've provided a small Python script, upgrade-runtime.py to update your account for you.

  1. Log into the machine where you run condor_annex. If you can't run condor_annex immediately after logging in, do whatever you do so that you can, and then proceed to the next step.
  2. Run
    pip install --user boto3
    This installs a Python library, if it isn't already present, needed by the script.
  3. Download the script:
    wget https://htcondor-wiki.cs.wisc.edu/index.cgi/attach_get/1019/upgrade-runtime.py
  4. Run it:
    python2 ./upgrade-runtime.py

If the script reports a failure, contact us for assistance.
