# Error with condor submission

Hi,

I am trying to run MadGraph at fixed order on condor, but am getting errors when launching the run on LXPLUS in cluster mode.

I am running the p p > HH j j process, and while the first batch of submissions seems to execute fine, the run ends with the following error:

CRITICAL: Fail to run correctly job 1110895.

with option: {'log': None, 'stdout': None, 'argument': ['1', 'born', '0', '0'], 'nb_submit': 1, 'stderr': None, 'prog': 'ajob1', 'output_files': ['born_G1'], 'time_check': 1539518311.434997, 'cwd': '/afs/cern.

file missing: /afs/cern.

This error only seems to happen when I use the req_acc_FO = -1 option, but this seems to be the only way to get accurate enough differential distributions. I also didn't get this error in a Drell-Yan example I tried.

The log file of the missing result ends after one iteration, with the following in SubProcesses/
