[Mauiusers] Scheduling systems to be available at certain times

When I use the post-3.2 style syntax in maui.cfg, I don't get the expected results from showconfig.

My maui.cfg has this

SRCFG[interactive] ACCESS=DEDICATEDjavascript:SetCmd(cmdSend);
SRCFG[interactive] PERIOD=DAY
SRCFG[interactive] STARTTIME=06:00:00
SRCFG[interactive] ENDTIME=16:00:00
SRCFG[interactive] HOSTLIST=underdog,optimus,hi-test,super
SRCFG[interactive] CLASSLIST=interactive

But the output of 'showconfig| grep SR' shows this:

SRTASKCOUNT[0]                    0
SRTPN[0]                          0
SRRESOURCES[0]                    PROCS=-1;MEM=0;DISK=0;SWAP=0
SRDEPTH[0]                        2
SRSTARTTIME[0]                    6:00:00
SRENDTIME[0]                      16:00:00
SRWSTARTTIME[0]                   00:00:00
SRWENDTIME[0]                     00:00:00
SRDAYS[0]                         Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri
SRHOSTLIST[0]                     underdog optimus hi-test super
SRCFG[interactive]                CLASSLIST=interactive HOSTLIST=underdog optimus hi-test super FLAGS=BYNAME  

Notice that:
(1) The ACCESS directive is ignored
(2) SRCFG has a different index than the rest of the SR* paramters

What's up with that?

I don't have a complete solution, but we do have a normal working
hours reservation working. In our case, we've got 28 workstations
(named ch405[a-n] and ch409[a-n]) in a Windows lab that we reboot over
to Linux outside of normal class and lab hours (8:00 AM through 12:00
AM Monday-Thursday, 8:00 AM-6:00 PM Friday, 2:00 PM-12:00 AM
Sunday). Two Torque queues named ch405 and ch409 contain the 14
systems in each group. I don't know that the following is the best way
to do the standing reservations, but it gets the job done. Suggestions
for simplifying it are welcome. As to automatically routing a job to
the overnight queue, we haven't done that. We just tell our users to
submit a job to the ch405 or ch409 queues explicitly if needed, and
jobs by default will go to a permanently-available queue.
