Hi Reuti...

Thanks for the answer... Just some some final question...

1) If a user belong to ONLY one project

[root at sge01 tools_scripts]# qconf -suser goncalo
name goncalo
oticket 0
fshare 0
delete_time 0
default_project Na50Lip

SGE is able to discover the cluster queue where his jobs are supposed to 
run (he doesn't need to invoke the -P option at qsub time). I tested it 
and it works.

2) If the Fairshare Policy is defined on a project basis, it will be 
taken into account in previous situation? Otherwise, it would be simply 
better to forget about projects, define Fairshare Policies based on 
users and use the user list item in the queue definition to allow user 
access to cluster queues...

Thanks in Advance
