#1456 closed defect (fixed)

min_uid and min_gid apply to prefix users of prolog

Reported by: wish Owned by: Dave Love <…>
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: sge Version: 6.2u3
Severity: minor Keywords:


Setting min_uid and min_gid prevents sge_execd from running a prolog as a user with a uid or gid below this value using the user@ prefix. This can be worked around (eg by running it as a special user with uid/gid above the threshold and using sudo to switch to the desired user) it is unexpected and adds a difficulty for no real security gain. The effect of this failure to run the prolog seems to be to push the job back on to the queue.

The same problem probably applies to the epilog.
