There are a few things you can look at, such as did you mispell:
universe = standard
in your submit description file?

If not, the best way to debug it is thus:

1. In the local config file for the submit machine add D_SYSCALLS and

2. For your execute machines, add D_FULLDEBUG to STARTER_DEBUG.

Then, resubmit the job. (or you can just fix the debugging on one execute
machine and force the job to run there)

When it fails, check out the starter log on the execute node where the
job ended up running, you'll probably see the cause of the error right
away....unless the logfile just ends abruptly, in which case the starter
segfaulted and we definitely need to check that out.

The shadow log will record how far along it got while talking to the starter.

Thank you.
