I think with
a) vanilla universe
b) no common UID_DOMAIN 

you have to have world writeable permissions in the directory as the job
will run
as nobody. If you relax one of the 2 above conditions, then it may work OK.

If you have no common FILESYSTEM_DOMAIN, then you'll
also need to use the transfer files commands as described in
2.5.3 and 2.5.4
