I'm experiencing a strange problem with Torque (torque-2.0.0p7-1 bundled
inside Rocks 4.1.0 64bits) :

On site we have the following problem :

I use the default rocks configuration which is basic : 1 queue with no
ressource restriction :

create queue default
set queue default queue_type = Execution
set queue default enabled = True
set queue default started = True

The spool directory has the following rights :

[root at amd-0-0 torque]# pwd

drwxrwxrwt  2 root root 4096 Feb 16 14:20 spool

Mom is running as root.

There is 1GB free space on the /opt/torque/spool partition on the node.

I have searched on the mailing list and google but can't find another
example where the SOURCE file cannot be "stated", only permission problems.

The strange thing is that I cannot reproduce that on our dev/test cluster
wich is exactly the same network, partition, naming, queue, user

I have also copied the "faulty" torque folders of the master & compute nodes
on my dev cluster to replace my working test one. And it works great.

Any idea why mom is not creating the .OU and .ER files ?

Thanks for your help,

Constantin Charissis
