I used to be able to ssh on my Mac Pro 10.6.8 in school and submit jobs (running flow simulations) using the batch command.  The batch command starts a computational fluid dynamics code that is supposed to run for a number of iterations (typically this takes hours). 

 

When I submit the batch jobs now, the runs reach the number of iterations specified but then the run starts again.  The run is executed three times.  I tested this on different MacPro computers I have. 

 

I also tested with "at now" instead of "batch".  The result was the same:  the run was executed three times.

 

If I ssh and start the runs without batch, all is running fine.

 

I tested a small batch submission using line commands and the file batchtest:

 

ssh -X user@machine

batch

batchtest

control-D

 

where batchtest is:

 

ls -l codes

df -k > disks1

 

This worked fine, it did not loop.

 

I would appreciate any suggestions.

 

Thank you,
