Re: jobs on slave nodes disappear

Ahhh I think I know what's happening. You're submitting the jobs as root
from root's home folder which is not NFS shared. This is why you're not
seeing any results, output files, error files, etc. unless the job
actually gets scheduled to run on the 'master node' which you're
currently logged into.
If you switch to the CLUSTER_USER and submit the job from CLUSTER_USER's
$HOME folder you'll probably find everything works fine. This is because
$HOME is NFS-shared across the cluster by default so no matter what node
the job gets scheduled to you'll always see the results from any node in
