Hi Stephan,

Thanks for your help. I'll try these things and let you know if they worked.

I sometimes have experienced this behavior if

-) a global mounted /home-dir of the user (to whom the job belongs to) is
not mounted

-) the user is not known on this computenode (e.g. because the LDAP service
is down, the nscd has hung up,...)

-) the prolog-script failed (for what reason ever).

-) the ssh-keys are not okay, so that the corresponding user can not jump
from computenode to computenode without using a password.

Perhaps, some of this is the solution for your problem.
