I've had a quick hunt through the Torque sources and Googled around and can't
find a description of the different capabilities of the users permitted access through
the Torque "operators" and "managers" ACLs in the server config.
The admin guide helpfully says:
Deﬁnes which users, at a speciﬁed host, are granted batch system administrator privi-
lege. For example, to grant privilege to ‘‘me’’ at all systems on the sub-domain and
‘‘sam’’ only from this system, big, then:
s s managers=me@*.foo.bar.com,sam at big.foo.bar.com
Deﬁnes which users, at a speciﬁed host, are granted batch system operator privilege.
Speciﬁed as are the managers.
10. Log onto the system as root and deﬁne yourself to pbs_server as a manager by typing:
Qmgr: set server managers=your_name at your_host
From this point, you no longer need root privilege. Note, "your_host" can be any host on
which PBS’ qmgr command is installed. You can now conﬁgure and manage a remote
batch system from the comfort of your own workstation.
But that's about it.. am I being blind ? (My guess is yes)
