HPUX Re: [torqueusers] mom rejecting job?

Thanks for the quick reply.

As I look in the mom_logs of the client machines, I see no attempt that
the server even tried to send a job.

I cleaned out and restarted all the mom files and directories and now it
all seems to be working more or less.  I did make sure and name all my
nodes and server references by their fully qualified (with domain)
names.  I think that helped.

I still have one small problem.  When a job finishes, the stdout and
stderr files are not properly copied back to the originating host.  As
the admin, I get this:

Post job file processing error; job 34.server.ddd.alcoa.com on host

Unable to copy file 34.server..OU to

Unable to copy file 34.server..ER to

This happens whether I submit from an NFS area or not, and regardless of
which machine I submitted from (it was the server in this case).

I still have more reading to do in the manual around NFS, rcp, and
stage-in, stage-out; so I may be doing something obviously stupid.  I
know HPUX does not have ssh built in, 

Thanks for all your help.  Torque is sure working out a lot better than

So MOM running on the server host works, but others are rejecting?  Must
be a config problem.  Can we see a high loglevel snippet from the MOM
