Hi All,


I have configured a windows machine as both, a submission as well as an
execution host. Later I try to submit a job to this windows machine, but the
job gets suspended in Eqw state. The qstat -j <job_id> command gives the
following statement : " can't get password entry for user <user_name>.
Either the user does not exist or an NIS error! ".


The password entry for this user was successfully made using "sgepasswd
<user_name>" command in qmaster.

Could any one tell where the problem is??



NOTE:  the user that is used here is obtained from active directory..the
windows machine being a member of a domain.


Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Please help.
