Issue:
U2000009 Job '' with RUN# '' ended on return code '205'.
Resolution:
Detailed Description and Symptoms

?Setting up a job for the first time on a UNIX machine.  When I do a simple "ls" command or something similar, it ends with a return code of 205.  There is no information on this return code.


Investigation

?The return codes come directly from the OS, so this is an operating system problem.


Solution

?Exit code 205 means that the Job cannot switch to the user's home directory. Usually this is associated with a permissions error on the executable, or the temp or out directories.
