No, doesn't work either.  Neither nodes nor nodes and ncpus is working for

The first lines of the jobscript looks like this:

#PBS -q workq
#PBS -l walltime=01:02:00
#PBS -l ncpus=1
#PBS -l nodes=1
#PBS -l mem=10MB
#PBS -m abe

Here is what checkjobs says about it:

eckjob -v 4743.altix3

checking job 4743 (RM job '4743.altix3')

job is deferred.  Reason:  NoResources  (cannot create reservation for job '4743' (intital reservation attempt)
Holds:    Defer  (hold reason:  NoResources)
PE:  1.00  StartPriority:  1
cannot select job 4743 for partition DEFAULT (job hold active)

Any further ideas?  Is there a default configuration for PBSPro 7.1 (and 
maui) which should work in any case?

Thanks in advance,
