Problem:

The following error is generated when running a  job with a "sudo" 
account-id encoded in the job's "owner" attribute:                          
 <Owner attribute error. User does not exist in the system>      

Environment:

Autosys 11 on UNIX

Cause:

"sudo" account-id used is not supported.                                             
 

Workaround:  

                                                                        
You may as a workaround run the job under a different account and then use  
the "sudo" in the command line to switch to the account that you wish to    
run the job under.
