Hi Ling, Did you hear back about this? I briefly had this issue last week,
then things were working fine through yesterday, then the problem returned
this morning. farmshare/user_data is a symlink to nothing. There are some
other kinks also, like both new and old farmshare are having difficulties
with gridengine.
