We're using SoGE 8.1.6 in an environment where users may login to the cluster from a Linux workstation (typically using a lower-case login name) or a Windows desktop, where their login name (as supplied by the enterprise Active Directory) is usually mixed-case.
On the cluster, we've created two passwd entries per-user with an identical UID, so there's no distinction in file ownership or any permissions or access rights at the Linux shell level. Most users don't notice (or care) about the case that's shown when they login. However, SoGE seems to use the login name literally, not the UID. This causes two problems: job management User "smithj" cannot manage (qdel, qalter) jobs that they submitted as "SmithJ" scheduler weighting Using fair-share scheduling, John Smith will get a disproportinate share of resources if he submits jobs as both "smithj" and "SmithJ" vs. Jane Doe who only submits jobs from her Linux machine as "doej". Is there a way to configure SoGE to treat login IDs with a case-insensitive match, or to use UIDs? We use a JSV pretty extensively, but I didn't see a way to alter login names via a JSV -- any suggestions?
