Since the 2.4 branch we get the error: qsub: illegal -W value
This we get on stagein and stageout of multiple files separated by a comma.
With the 2.3 this would work just perfectly.
Jobs are submitted via a script which I have attached.
As you might notice, this script is generated by a service called a CREAMCE
from the gLite grid middleware.
I have tried to upgrade to 2.4.10 and 2.5.2 and both do not work and when i
revert to 2.3.7 it all works again.
For the record, there is a mirror bug for this issue in the CREAM CE
And there is a thread in the Torque mailing list about this issue:
The problem here is that we are trying to create a coherent syntax for the -W
option. In the man page it states:
The -W option allows for the specification of additional job attributes. The
general syntax of the -W is in the form:
However, for certain options, like the dependency_list, the man page instructs
people to write a comma separated list. We need a coherent syntax for this
option, and so the resolution is to encase any values that contain commas in
quotes. I am sorry for the inconvenience here, but we are just resolving an
inconsistency in TORQUE.
For us this problem has been fixed in the most recent update of the glite-cream
I will close this ticket.
