[Mauiusers] Fairness Policy Configuration

I'm configuring small cluster in my lab and I've managed to install properly
both torque and maui. They've been working neatly for over a month now.
However, since it's a somewhat small group that uses the cluster resources,
no fairness policy had been set at first. Now, I'm in the need of it (a very
soft policy, though), but I just can't set anything up regarding this. What
I'm intending to do is to set a maximum of 5 idle job limit per user. As far
as I'm concerned, all what I have to do is to edit the "maui.cfg" file (only
this?) and include somewhere in this file, the following string
However, during the tests I still could put on queue as many jobs as I
wanted. I've also tested other keys such as "MAXJOB" without success.
Summary of actions:
* stop all torque executions (pbs_server and pbs_mom)
* stop maui
* edit maui.cfg file
* start torque executions (pbs_server and pbs_mom)
* start maui
* run a job (usually a sleep command) using the "qsub" command.
Am I missing anything?
Thank you in advance.
