[Mauiusers] FairShare "auth" questions

I have a similar situation and I use a torque-submitfilter file to do
this "authentication" outside of the scheduler. 

Check the torque script to see if they have provided a "#PBS -A"
directive. If they haven't then add that to their script and send them
off to the queue.  

You can do all kinds of nice sanity checking with a torque-submitfilter.

Subject: [Mauiusers] FairShare "auth" questions

Hi all:

I also have another FAIRSHARE-related question:  how do I
allocate/authenticate users' group?

In my situation, I have ~7 research groups that contributed varying
amounts to build this cluster.  Each research group has multiple users
in that group, but each user only belongs to one research group (at
least currently).

So far, the examples I've seen of FAIRSHARE use the "billing code"
option to allocate a users' job to a group.  However, its unclear to me
what happens if a user doesn't specify a billing code, or specifies a
code to a different group.  Ideally, I'd like a user to belong to a
specific group and their jobs automatically get counted against that
group.  If a user happens to be in multiple groups, then they can
specify a different group (although this is optional).

Is this, or something similar doable?
