I would use a standing reservation, something like:

SRCFG[extranodes] HOSTLIST=node024,node025,node026,node027
SRCFG[extranodes] USERLIST=niceguy,friend1,friend2

Caveat: that's off of the top of my head, based on something we did ages ago 
(that worked) but if it breaks your scheduler or eats your cat don't blame 
me. :-)

See the documentation on reservations in Maui at


for more info..

That way you don't need to do anything about setting attributes on nodes; 
although it might be useful to do so to allow them to target those nodes and 
then you'd use the trick that was posted about setting attributes via the 
queue they asked for.
