No, this is effectively what we do to start the server. The only
difference is that when using PBS the environment is not passed through
to the cluster. Is that a feature specific to LSF?
This is a feature of LSF, a very useful one. An LSF job inherits the
environment of the user who started it and knows where the home
directory of this user is. We run our pipelines as a special user, and I
am going to run the production Galaxy server as another special user.
I do not know whether LSF is configured like this at Sanger or this is
is generic feature
