[GE users] RE: cannot submit job because of error bug?

Hi all,

  I have exactly same output for one of my users - qstat, qdel, qsub and
other gives 'can't resolve group'.

  A little bit of googling gave me next issue
http://gridengine.sunsource.net/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1256 . I checked
and found user primary group's ID was not listed in ldap set of groups.
So search on that user gave me list of all slave groups he belongs to
but not primary. 

  I added primary group but still get 'can't resolve group' message.
Question - can it be cached somewhere?

Br,
dmitry

Dear Daniel

I have set dl 4 and attach the output. I had a look at the source, is it
possible to build qstat by itself for debug purpose?

Thanks

Henk
