We are having issues with maui-3.2.6p14 and multiple PBSpro node 
attributes, maui doesn't seem to see after the first node attribute on a 
pbs node specification , for example:

ada759-6:/var/spool/PBS/server_priv # cat nodes | grep matlab
ada746-6 pcpus=4 fpga matlab amd275
ada746-5 pcpus=4 fpga matlab amd275
ada748-1 pcpus=4 amd275 matlab
ada748-3 pcpus=4 amd275 matlab
ada748-2 pcpus=4 amd275 matlab
ada748-5 pcpus=4 amd275 matlab
ada748-6 pcpus=4 amd275 matlab
ada748-4 pcpus=4 amd275 matlab
ada759-6:/var/spool/PBS/server_priv # diagnose -n | grep ada74

The node features column only sees the first attribute specified on the 
nodesfile , nothing else. Jobs that request the second attribute never 
get to run.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
