I am trying to understand the circumstances in which a job will run as user "nobody", rather than the user that submitted the job, which we would prefer.
We have home directories mounted via NFS to all the machines in a small cluster, and the UIDs for users are the same across them. As suggested in the manual, I set
FILESYSTEM_DOMAIN = <our domain>
UID_DOMAIN = <our domain>
TRUST_UID_DOMAIN = TRUE
SOFT_UID_DOMAIN = TRUE
in the configuration files of both the submitting and executing machine. I then submit a job with a test script that has
run_as_owner = True
and gives us the output of `pwd`, `hostname` and `whoami`, which confirms that it runs as "nobody" in the correct machine.
What am I overlooking here?
thank you very much for any help!
