Dear Reuti and other users,
1) When I look for share tree, it indicates that share tree is missing.
$ qconf -sst
Also the new users do not have "delete_time" in the entry.
Is there any way to retrieve back sharetree.
2)Yes, its true the user 'X' who submits job logged in as himself into the
head node sees no jobs of himself, instead `qstat -u "*"` outputs that the
user is who submitted the job is not user 'X' but root.
3) should the owner be set to sge?
