Subject: [HTCondor-users] jobs getting run as nobody




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>




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!
