[torqueusers] qsub: Job rejected by all possible destinations

 Follow-up to this problem.....

The only difference I can see between users BOB (which works) and JEFF
(which doesn't), is that BOB has an account on every compute node in the
cluster, while JEFF in only on a subset (the only places he will ever
run - enforced by a "-l nodes=MY_PROPERTY" on the qsub command.  They
both have accounts on the compute node as well as the server.  Neither
account is in NIS.

Lately been testing with "qsub -I", and the experience is the same, BOB
can submit and run interactively, JEFF gets the rejected message.

Very confused.

Thanks for your help.

What could cause this error for one user on a particular machine, but
not a different user?

I am trying to submit from a compute node BRAIN.  I have two users, BOB
and JEFF.

BOB can submit a simple test job from BRAIN, either to the default
queue, or with various "-l" restrictions" and all works fine.

JEFF cannot submit and gets the mentioned error.

Both BOB and JEFF have similar UIDs.  All ACL (users, hosts)_enable are

Has nothing to do with file permissions.   Both BOB and JEFF can ssh to
other nodes okay.

Thanks for your help.
