Usersets are also used to define grid engine system projects and departments. For details about projects, see Defining Projects.
Departments are used for the configuration of the functional policy and the override policy. Departments differ from access lists in that a user can be a member of only one department, whereas one user can be included in multiple access lists. For more details, see Configuring the Functional Policy and Configuring the Override Policy.
A Userset is identified as a department by the Department flag, which is shown in Figure 4–1 and Figure 4–2. A Userset can be defined as both a department and an access list at the same time. However, the restriction of only a single appearance by any user in any department applies.
