Your openpbs server log may tell you why maui wasn't able to set the
job's hostlist.

I hope you have openpbs firewalled because that means any user "liu"
anywhere in the world is your server admin.

Maui needs to also be a manager.  You need to add the username that is
running maui.

Since you are using ancient OpenPBS, maui needs to directly query
pbs_mom on each node.  These nodes are rejecting connections from maui.
Is maui running as root?
