#StackBounty: #networking #server #hosts #torque Torque: Unauthorized Request

Bounty: 50

Following this guide:


I installed TORQUE on Ubuntu 16-04-lts (he claims the process works the same on 16.04)

A short summary of his install instructions so this can be self sufficient:

apt-get install torque-server torque-client torque-mom torque-pam
/etc/init.d/torque-mom stop
/etc/init.d/torque-scheduler stop
/etc/init.d/torque-server stop
pbs_server -t create

killall pbs_server

echo SERVER.DOMAIN > /etc/torque/server_name
echo SERVER.DOMAIN > /var/spool/torque/server_priv/acl_svr/acl_hosts
echo root@SERVER.DOMAIN > /var/spool/torque/server_priv/acl_svr/operators
echo root@SERVER.DOMAIN > /var/spool/torque/server_priv/acl_svr/managers

echo "SERVER.DOMAIN np=4" > /var/spool/torque/server_priv/nodes
echo SERVER.DOMAIN > /var/spool/torque/mom_priv/config

/etc/init.d/torque-server start
/etc/init.d/torque-scheduler start
/etc/init.d/torque-mom start
# set scheduling properties
qmgr -c 'set server scheduling = true'
qmgr -c 'set server keep_completed = 300'
qmgr -c 'set server mom_job_sync = true 

After following his directions up to:

qmgr -c 'set server scheduling = true'

I get the error message

qmgr obj=master.node svr=master.node: Unauthorized Request

I grep the logs as he mentions and find this unhelpful snippet:
grep Unauthorized /var/spool/torque/server_logs/*

08/25/2018 15:48:43;0080;PBS_Server;Req;req_reject;Reject reply code=15007(Unauthorized Request ), aux=0, type=Manager, from root@master.node

This is my hostname:


This is my hosts file: master master localhost master.node master slave1 slave2 slave3

This is how I configured the various config files:

echo master.node > /etc/torque/server_name
echo master.node > /var/spool/torque/server_priv/acl_svr/acl_hosts
echo root@master.node > /var/spool/torque/server_priv/acl_svr/operators
echo root@master.node > /var/spool/torque/server_priv/acl_svr/managers

echo "master.node np=4" > /var/spool/torque/server_priv/nodes
echo master.node > /var/spool/torque/mom_priv/config

Each time I fiddle with it I restart the various daemons with:

/etc/init.d/torque-server restart
/etc/init.d/torque-scheduler restart
/etc/init.d/torque-mom restart

I am currently running as root.

I am at a total loss as to what TORQUE wants here. Why am I unauthorized?

Also qmgr thinks there are no nodes despite having a /var/spool/torque/server_priv/nodes file. Why?

Qmgr: list node
No Active Nodes, nothing done.
