Description Burkhard Bunk 2012-09-16 06:08:26 MDT
Hi,

after setting

        set server display_job_server_suffix = False

(such that JobID = job_number), any attempt to submit an array job with

        qsub -t <range> <script>

results in

        qsub: End of File

and the server crashes immediately, without any message in its logfile.

I'm running torque-2.5.11 (with maui-3.3.1) in Debian Squeeze.

A fix would be to define another suffix with

        set server job_suffix_alias = <something>

BTW, "job_suffix_alias" is not documented in the Admin Guide (2.5.12).
And admins should be warned that the settings of
        display_job_server_suffix
and     job_suffix_alias
should only be changed while the system is empty. The syntax change in JobID
hurts running (and queued?) jobs.

Regards,
Burkhard Bunk.

The same happened on CentOS 6.2,
running torque-2.5.5-7nec (and maui-3.3.2.nec1-14nec).

Checked in to 2.5.13 and 4.1.3.
