[Swift-user] errors in file transfer

Hi Mihael,
I deleted the following line in my sites.xml file for NCSA_Abe and the wrapper transfer warnings are gone. 
<profile namespace="globus" key="queue">fast</profile>
I can also find jobs queuing on Abe. However, after quite a while, no job returned. I guess it is because I didn't set a priority and all the jobs are waiting. Is there other way to set priority? I will try again later.
I then tested the IU BigRed with my application. Swift showed me the following error and I don't know if this is because of my setting:
Progress:  Selecting site:1019  Initializing site shared directory:4
Execution failed:
        Could not initialize shared directory on IU_BigRed
Caused by:
        org.globus.cog.abstraction.impl.file.FileResourceException: Error communicating with the GridFTP server
Caused by:
        Server refused performing the request. Custom message: Server refused GSSAPI authentication. (error code 1) [Nested exception message:  Custom message: Unexpected reply: 530-globus_xio: Server side credential failure

530 End.]

The log for this search is at :
In the sites.xml, the entry for the BigRed is :
 <pool handle="IU_BigRed">
    <gridftp url="gsiftp://gridftp.bigred.iu.teragrid.org"/>
    <execution provider="coaster" url="gatekeeper.bigred.iu.teragrid.org" jobManager="gt2:fork"/>
    <profile namespace="globus" key="queue">fast</profile>

Thank you for help!

Those are more like warnings, not errors.

The real error should be displayed towards the end of the run. Anyway,
it says:
"org.globus.gram.GramException: The provided RSL 'queue' parameter is
