[Mauiusers] Questions regarding "tasks" and the cfg file.

out of curiosity, if you remove the lines you singled out in your  first email from your maui.cfg (nodecfg[argo17-1] and classcfg[dedicated]) which you think may be causing the problem, does the system then work?

I have six queues defined in torque: one route queue called batch and five
execution queues (two of the queues are staff/faculty and the other three
are only for students). The job is being submitted directly to "dedicated"
which is one of the two staff/faculty queues. By the way, my id is in the
acl_user entry for the queue dedicated. Here's the script

#PBS -N hello_world
#PBS -q dedicated   <------------
#PBS -l nodes=argo17-1
/home/homes51/mhoma/a.out

argo17-1
     state = free
     np = 4
     properties = Linux2.i86pc,dualcore,amd,smp,dedicated <------
argo18-2                                        ---------
     state = free
     np = 4
     properties = Linux2.i86pc,dualcore,amd,smp,dedicated <------
argo18-3                                        ---------
     state = free
     np = 4
     properties = Linux2.i86pc,dualcore,amd,smp,dedicated <------
                                                ---------
list queue dedicated
Queue dedicated
        queue_type = Execution
        max_queuable = 48
        max_user_queuable = 24
        total_jobs = 3
        state_count = Transit:0 Queued:3 Held:0 Waiting:0 Running:0 Exiting:0
        max_running = 1
        resources_max.ncpus = 6
        resources_max.nodect = 3
        resources_max.walltime = 00:30:00
        resources_default.neednodes = dedicated   <-------------

As you can see, the property dedicated associated with the three nodes is
associated with the queue dedicated.
