Concerning SGE 6.0u2 (tagged version from cvs)
I have a small problem which drives me crazy.
After installing sge with shared $SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL/common ( to limit 
nfs traffic) and dedicated berekely_db server I noticed
that only root can submit jobs.
Jobs submitted by users are stalled (qstat status  "t")

Observing  $SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL/spool/<node>/active_jobs gives the 
following picture:
Job submitted by root:

node0187:/opt/gridengine/matterhorn/spool/node0187a # ls -l 
total 88
-rw-r--r--  1 sgeadmin sge    6 Nov 28 20:47 addgrpid
-rw-r--r--  1 sgeadmin sge 1519 Nov 28 20:47 config
-rw-r--r--  1 sgeadmin sge 1172 Nov 28 20:47 environment
-rw-r--r--  1 root     sge    0 Nov 28 20:47 error
-rw-r--r--  1 root     sge    0 Nov 28 20:47 exit_status
-rw-r--r--  1 sgeadmin sge    6 Nov 28 20:47 job_pid
-rw-r--r--  1 sgeadmin sge   82 Nov 28 20:47 pe_hostfile
-rw-r--r--  1 sgeadmin sge    6 Nov 28 20:47 pid
-rw-r--r--  1 root     sge 1996 Nov 28 20:47 trace

Job submitted by user
is created but empty
the jobs_scripts is in the jobs_script directory and it is executable.

I set the file permission for all directories under spool on 0777 but 
that doesn't help. I guess that 'error' and 'exit_status' should be 
created under users permission. Since the jobdirectory has been created 
by an sge programm the user cannot write there.

But perhaps I'm looking at the wrong place

Thank you for your help
