Hi Jinal,

	We have seen these messages occasionally in our environment.
They typically indicate very slow
response from an NIS server, either due to other network traffic, or the
server itself is overloaded for some other reason.

HTH,

Mac McCalla

Subject: [GE users] can't get password entry for user

Hi All,

 From few days, were are seeing following errors for few jobs.

can't get password entry for user "kfelkins". Either the user does not 
exist or NIS error!
error reason  453:          can't get password entry for user 
"kfelkins". Either the user does not exist or NIS error!
error reason  454:          can't get password entry for user 
"kfelkins". Either the user does not exist or NIS error!

and thus leading the node in error state.

The error doesn't happen for a particular user but randomly for various 
users. I didn't get much information from the execd code except that 
sge_getpwnam , which in turn calls getpwnam , fails. sge_getpwnam 
doesn't specifically tell what error did it receive from getpwnam. I saw

several emails in the group, but none of those situation apply to us. 
The user is definitely configured correctly on that node and this error 
happens only randomly.  Also qconf -suserl does show the name of that
user.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated

thank you
