#1576 closed defect (fixed)

qconf - not an admin host

Reported by: christopher.webb@… Owned by: Dave Love <…>
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: sge Version: 8.1.8
Severity: minor Keywords:



I think a recent update to qconf has broken previous functionality. You used to be able to run the "show" commands on non-admin hosts, they now return a "not an admin host" error:

[spimcmw@nanlnx4 ~]1% qconf -sh
denied: host "" is not an admin host
[spimcmw@nanlnx4 ~]1%

This information can be still be obtained from qmon on non-admin hosts so I assume this is not deliberate. I wonder if it was due to the fix for #1547?

This is causing problems with the FSL package ( as their programs use the qconf to check queues before submitting jobs.

[spimcmw@nanlnx4 bin]0% grep QCONF fsl_sub

QCONF=which qconf
if [ "x$QCONF" = "x" ]; then

$QCONF -sq $queue >/dev/null 2>&1

$QCONF -sp $peName >/dev/null 2>&1

[spimcmw@nanlnx4 bin]0% grep qconf bedpostx

qconf -sq $FSLGECUDAQ 2>&1 >/dev/null

[spimcmw@nanlnx4 bin]0%

[spimcmw@nanlnx4 ~]1% qconf | & head -n1
SGE 8.1.9
[spimcmw@nanlnx4 ~]1%
