Here are some ideas. Unless root is marked as a manager, it has no
special privilege to see other's jobs.
So you could make root a manager and you must also say from which
machines this is allowed.
You can use a wild card character '*' in specifying the machine.
The command "set server managers=root@*" would allow root to be a
manager from any machine. Note that this is not secure but would do for
There is also a server option, query_other_jobs, that can be set to
allow all users to see all jobs.
