I am trying to run a job in linux execution environment through windows
machine as a submission host ... through a user that is obtained from Active

It however ends up in an error state, saying : "can't get password entry for
user <user_name>. Either the user does not exist or an NIS error !"

I would like to know the basic scenario of authenticating the windows host
to linux environment for this.


I have registered windows user's password with the qmaster in sgepasswd file


Many thanks in advance.
