Dear Torque user community

I have compiled torque on a 64-bit system (suse linux 9.2). This occurred
without error.

I am testing torque on just 2 machines: the torque server and 1 node.

Some details:
1. I have set up a file called "nodes" which holds the ip address of the
node as follows:

1. I have set up the mom_priv "config" file to accept the server.
2. The pbs_mom daemon starts without any error.

I get the following error message when I run pbs_server on the main node:
	PBS_Server: pbsd_init(setup_nodes), token "" doesn't
start with alpha on line 2
PBS_Server: PBS_Server, pbsd_init failed

However, when I remove the nodes file, pbs_server starts without any

What is going wrong?

Many thanks in advance
