pbsdsh doesn't work if nodename differs from hostname.

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
If pbs_mom is started with a name that differs from the hostname pbsdsh stops
working across multiple nodes.
My setup has compute nodes with hostnames like compute-X-Y.local and node names
in torque where the .local domain is dropped so the hostlist has entries like
This used to work fine in torque 2 and 3, but on torque 4.0.1 this will make
pbsdsh hang indefinitely (and any mpi launcher using libtm).
Is it possible to have the old behaviour back?
Using the -A flag solved the problem (As proposed by dbeer).
Just to help understand David's question, the -A option was created to help
with multi-mom mode. If you use an alias name the alias must be resolvable. In
our environments we add the alias to the /etc/hosts file.
Yes, on Rocks compute-X-Y is resolvable in the cluster DNS so this works fine
for my torque-roll setup.
