I guess I'm confused, because that's not quite the same as the behavior
you said you wanted earlier:

Do you want jobs in the test queue/class to run *ONLY* on node124?  If
that's the case, you'll have to set a host list (as well as user/group
ACLs) on the PBS side for the test queue:

# in qmgr
set queue test acl_host_enable = True
set queue test acl_hosts = node124
set queue test acl_user_enable = True
set queue test acl_users = mef2

# in maui.cfg
SRNAME[0] zodiac
SRHOSTLIST[0] node124
