Just had a problem about a crontab not being executed for a system user. In /var/cron/log the message

! bad user (cyrus) Mon May  9 08:05:00 2011

In case you have a group of virtual machines which you want to run together on one cluster node (e.g. they are communicating much faster through an internal vmware host network) you may achieve this by a cluster rule.

Just click on "Edit Settings" on the cluster's context menu:
