We have a new cluster I am setting up torque on, we have just recently 
got NIS working for user authentication. When I run a torque job I get 
the following on the nodes:

07/14/2005 09:01:36;0001;   pbs_mom;Svr;pbs_mom;Success (0) in 
fork_to_user, cannot find user 'wright4' in password file
07/14/2005 09:01:36;0001;   pbs_mom;Svr;pbs_mom;Inappropriate ioctl for 
device (25) in req_cpyfile, fork_to_user failed with rc=-15023 'cannot 
find user 'wright4' in password file' - returning failure

Now cause we are using NIS the /etc/passwd file is rather empty. Is it 
possible for torque to get the information about the user from the NIS 
database instead of /etc/passwd?
