I’m trying to set the whitelist of machine limits in the OnSlaveStart callback. These workers/slaves are cloud instances. I’m doing this because I’m spinning up instances for a particular job and I want to ensure the job only runs on those instances and that those instances don’t run any other jobs.
Initially, I was doing:
whiteListedWorkers = list(deadlineJob.JobListedSlaves) or  print whiteListedWorkers whiteListedWorkers.append(slave_name) RepositoryUtils.SetMachineLimit(jobId, 0, whiteListedWorkers, True, 0.0)
If I were to this with three instances, I found that two instances showed an empty list of whiteListedWorkers and one instance had one pre-existing node. This made me think it was a race condition. However, I could see at least one worker in the whitelist (in Deadline Monitor), so the methods were working.
Next, I tried
RepositoryUtils.AddSlavesToMachineLimitList(jobId, [slave_name])… but now nothing shows up in the machine limit and I have no errors in worker log.
Any suggestions on the best way to go about this?
Would I have better luck with pools/groups?
