Hi Manju,

with SUA I switched to SAMBA, because the NFS support got even worse 
than with SFU. I didn't find a way to map local Windows users to Unix 
users, so neihter the sgeadmin nor root had access to NFS shares.

If you still have an Windows XP host, it is said that you still can use 
it as user name mapping server, but I didn't invest much time on 
figuring it out.

There are some hotfixes for SUA, but the only thing I already saw 
problems with was the libm.so delivired with some version of SUA. If 
there are problems with this library (or in general with the dynamic 
libraries, as other libraries import this library, too), it's possible 
to get a fixed version of this library from Interopsystems (who 
originally created Interix before Microsoft bought it).

If you come across this problem, I will write a small docu how to get 
and install this library.
