I can't seem to get any of this to work properly. I'll post this one
at a time to see if I can get each one to work, first I have this
reservation:

SRCFG[workinghours]
HOSTLIST=arsenic,barium,bismuth,boron,curium,erbium,gold,helium,hydrogen,manganese,neon,niobium,nitrogen,palladium,platinum,radium,radon,selenium,silicon,silver,sulfur,tin,xenon,zinc
SRCFG[workinghours] DAYS=[ALL] STARTTIME=12:00:00 ENDTIME=18:59:59
USERLIST=nobody ACCESS=DEDICATED

I see these errors in the log :

# tail -f maui.log | grep -i ALERT
03/19 13:59:11 ALERT:    cannot select 192 procs in partition '[ALL]'
for SR 'workinghours'
03/19 13:59:11 ALERT:    cannot select 192 procs in partition '[ALL]'
for SR 'workinghours'
03/19 13:59:11 ALERT:    cannot create SR[0] workinghours at depth 1

but in mdiag -r I see :

Then when I try to submit a job using a user other than "nobody" the
job starts running on zinc . Why?
