Failed to determine the logged in user
1.) The account being used to run the job (using sudo or otherwise) does not have rights to the /tmp directory. CCS agentless job runs use temporary scratch files to store the job run commands in. If the account cannot Read and Write to the /tmp directory this error will occur.
2.) The account used for sudo has an expired password.
1. Ensure that the account has full rights to the /tmp directory on the target server.
2.) Reset the password for the sudo user on the UNIX server.
