Sorry for cross-posting but I saw a related talk about this issue on this list before so am I am posting it here. Has anybody successfully ran SGE jobs as user nobody? I am getting
"can't chdir to /nonexistent: No such file or directory"error. It seems like qsub command is looking for the user's homedir, and nobody's home dir is /nonexistent and thus it generates this error.
I am using -cwd and -o /tmp/x.out and -e /tmp/x.out options Apart from "running it as a regular user"  any other suggestions?

Thank you
