[slurm-users] Odd prolog Error?

Hello all,

Regularly I'm seeing array jobs fail, and the only log info from the
compute node is this:

[2023-04-11T11:41:12.336] error: /opt/slurm/prolog.sh: exited with status
[2023-04-11T11:41:12.336] error: [job 26090] prolog failed status=1:0
[2023-04-11T11:41:12.336] Job 26090 already killed, do not launch batch job

The contents of prolog.sh are incredibly simple:

loginctl enable-linger $SLURM_JOB_USER

I can't sort out what may be going on here. An example script from a job
that can result in this error is here:

#SBATCH -t 2:00:00
#SBATCH -n 1
#SBATCH -p compute
#SBATCH --array=1-100
#SBATCH -o tempOut/MSO-%j-%a.log

module load python3/python3
python3 runVoltage.py $SLURM_ARRAY_TASK_ID

Any insight would be welcome! This is really frustrating because it's
constantly causing nodes to drain.

Warmest regards,
