Job Template permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have setup some job templates for an application running on HPC.  I have setup a security group in Active Directory which hosts users I want to be able to run these templates.  I have ensured this user group has been added to the permissions on each of the job templates i created.  However the users are not able to see the job templates when they retrieve the cluster information within the application.  HOWEVER. If i explictly define a user's name within the job templates permissions, then bang, the user can see the templates.

    Why can't users within the security group not see the templates even though they have the correct permissions?

    Thanks for any advise.

  • Hi,

     Could you share some more details about this issue? I am mostly interested in the following:

    1. What's the version of Windows HPC Server you are using?

    2. How is your application retrieving job templates list?

    3. What is the exact setup of permissions on your templates?

    Normally when user doesn't have permission to submit jobs with specified template he will still see it on the list and will get an error on job submission attempt. The behavior you have descibed seems to be invalid, but I couldn't reproduce it so far.
