Hi Loris,

Thank you for your reply.
SLURM jobs are submitted by a JAVA application and there is only one SLURM
user.
Should we use another plugin (not multifactor plugin) ? Is it a way to fix
user rights ?

Below my slurm.conf ("anonymized") :

SlurmctldPidFile=/var/run/slurm-llnl/slurmctld.pid
SlurmdPidFile=/var/run/slurm-llnl/slurmd.pid
