We have recently upgraded one submit host from RHEL6.7 to RHEL7.2.
Most of our grid execution servers are RHEL6.7, with a few RHEL6.3 servers. When we run any jobs by using "-V" option to export environment variables, it does not work and the job fails.

As an example examine a simple job:


echo "Sleeping now"
sleep $1


When we run this job without exporting environment variables, it works fine. But exporting environment variables causes errors as shown below:

<BASE_PATH>/job_scripts/2666843: line 3: date: command not found
<BASE_PATH>/job_scripts/2666843: line 5: sleep: command not found

Of course, this issue is persistent in interactive jobs also, which causes applications not working properly.

Is there any way to circumvent this issue?
