Hi all,

I am trying to use the pbs-drmaa library to let Galaxy "see" our cluster.
We have PBS Pro, so I followed the instructions found here:


   - I installed the library through:

./configure --with-pbs=$PBS_HOME --prefix=$HOME


make install

where PBS_HOME points to the local pbs installation folder (the one with
bin, etc, lib folders and so on) and $HOME points to my user's home dir.

   - I have set the DRMAA_LIBRARY_PATH env variable:



Here is my job_conf.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
        <plugin id="local" type="runner"
        <plugin id="drmaa" type="runner"
        <handler id="main"/>
    <destinations default="queue">
        <destination id="local" runner="local"/>
        <destination id="queue" runner="drmaa">
                <param id="nativeSpecification">-A cin_galaxy</param>

But when I use the nativeSpecification parameter (with -A account
parameter), I receive the following error, with no further specification of
what the error can be (it says "Illegal attribute or resource value"
without saying which one triggered the error):

galaxy.jobs.runners.drmaa DEBUG 2016-04-27 12:18:26,782 (15) native
specification is: -A cin_galaxy
galaxy.jobs.runners.drmaa ERROR 2016-04-27 12:18:26,784 (15)

line 151, in error_check
    raise _ERRORS[code - 1](error_string)
*InvalidAttributeValueException: code 14: Illegal attribute or resource

Can you please help me understanding the cause of the problem? Any help
would be most appreciated!

Thank you very much!
