Re: [Condor-users] error on submitting a job

No, submission under root is not allowed.
For pools with shared filestore and/or a common UID domain, running a job as, for instance,
"jk" will mean the jobs runs as "jk" on those remote machines.
If on such a system, root was allowed to run jobs, then a compromise on one of the many
nodes in the pool, could mean that you could wreak havok all over the pool running jobs which
run as root.
