       sgepasswd - Modify the Grid Engine password file of Grid Engine


       sgepasswd [[ -D domain ] -d user ]

       sgepasswd [ -D domain ] [ user ]


       sgepasswd modifies the Grid Engine password file sgepasswd(5).

       This  file  contains a list of usernames and their Microsoft Windows password in encrypted
       form.  sge_execd(8) and sge_shepherd(8) on hosts running Microsoft  Windows  as  operating
       systems use this information to start jobs for a certain user.

       Each user can use the sgepasswd application to add a new entry for their own user account.
       (In fact, normal users can create an entry for any account, so the entry  should  be  made
       initially,  when  the  account  is  created.)   It  is  also possible to change the stored
       password with sgepasswd if the user knows the old one.

       The root user additionally has permission to change the password entries  for  other  user
       accounts. Root can also delete existing entries.

       The sgepasswd binary is only available on non-Windows hosts.


       -D domain
              By  default  sgepasswd  will  add/modify the current Unix username without a domain
              specification.  This switch can be used to add a domain specification in  front  of
              the  current  user  name.  Consult your Microsoft Windows documentation to get more
              information about domain users.

       -d user
              Only root can use this parameter to delete entries from the sgepasswd(5) file.

       -help  Prints a listing of all options.


       Prevent relevant jobs running before a password is changed both with sgepasswd and in  the
       Windows  domain.   Otherwise,  if  multiple  jobs try to run on a Windows host as the user
       concerned, and are unable to access  the  right  password,  Windows'  intrusion  detection
       system may disable the account.  sgepasswd and in the Windows domain.


       This  is a non-trivial program which needs to be setuid root, operating with various user-
       supplied input.  It probably shouldn't be installed setuid if it is not needed to  support
       Windows hosts.

       See above concerning making initial entries.


       SGE_CERTFILE   Specifies  the  location  of the public key file. By default sgepasswd will
                      use $SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL/common/sgeCA/certs/cert.pem.

       SGE_KEYFILE    If set, specifies the  location  of  the  private  key  file.   Default  is

       SGE_RANDFILE   If  set,  specifies  the  location  of  the  seed  used to create encrypted
                      versions        of        user        passwords.         Default         is
