Grant PBS Operator Privileges

Define the users who have PBS Operator privileges.

Operators can manage the non-security-related attributes of PBS such as setting and unsetting non-security attributes of vnodes, queues, and the Server. Operators can also set queue ACLs.

Operators can do the following:

  • All operations that users can perform
  • Set non-security-related Server, queue, and vnode attributes (Operators are not permitted to set Server ACLs)
  • Alter some job attributes
  • Set or alter most resources on the Server, queues, and vnodes
  • Rerun, requeue, delete, and hold all jobs
  • Run any command to act on a job
