That's the problem right there. The execution node where the job is 
started, has a different /etc/passwd file than the machine where the job 
was submitted from. Either the execution user does not exist on the 
node, or has a different UID, etc.

Maybe the node lost it's LDAP connectivity or it's userbase is not in 
sync through some other means.

Kind regards,
