globus-job-run returns nothing

Full message

$ globus-job-run some-CE.domain/jobmanager-lcglsf -q queue /usr/bin/whoami

The command returns nothing, it does not hang and exits with status 0.


This can happen for at least these reasons:

  • The user has no permission to submit to the given queue. See Unspecified_gridmanager_error.
  • The job manager is of "lcg" flavor (lcgcondor, lcglsf, lcgpbs, lcgsge) and the queue name is misspelled and it happens to be a substring of any existing queue name. For example, if the intended queue is "dteam", the command will return nothing if the queue argument is given as "tea".
  • In /opt/globus/lib/perl/Globus/GRAM/JobManager/ lines like these:
   $bsub   = '/usr/share/lsf/6.2/linux2.6-glibc2.3-x86/bin/bsub';
   $bjobs  = '/usr/share/lsf/6.2/linux2.6-glibc2.3-x86/bin/bjobs';
   $bkill  = '/usr/share/lsf/6.2/linux2.6-glibc2.3-x86/bin/bkill';
   $bacct  = '/usr/share/lsf/6.2/linux2.6-glibc2.3-x86/bin/bacct';
   $bmod   = '/usr/share/lsf/6.2/linux2.6-glibc2.3-x86/bin/bmod';
may need to be replaced with lines like these:
   my $LSF = ". /etc/profile.d/; "
           . "/usr/local/lsf/6.2/linux2.6-glibc2.3-x86/bin";
   $bsub   = "$LSF/bsub";
   $bjobs  = "$LSF/bjobs";
   $bkill  = "$LSF/bkill";
   $bacct  = "$LSF/bacct";
   $bmod   = "$LSF/bmod";
to give the LSF commands the environment they need. Note that on an LCG-CE the globus-job-manager-marshal and globus-gma daemons need to be restarted when such changes are made. If the change fixes the problem, the same changes must be put in /opt/globus/setup/globus/ so that they will be preserved when the CE is reconfigured.
