As far as I can judge from the sources (of 2.3.0, not synced with
2.3.1 yet), this happens when your host that is trying to talk with
MOM is not in the 'okclients' tree.  What are you specifying as
'$clienthost' (or '$pbsserver')?  Is it coincides with the name of
the host trying to talk with MOM?  What do you see in the respective
MOM's log?  There should be the line "request type %s from host %s
rejected (host not authorized)" in the MOM's log (if MOM is in the
state, where the log is not closed; as I see, it should be logging
in this phase).

Ahh, I just saw the sources of 2.3.1: mom_server_add() no longer
calls 'tinsert(ipaddr,&okclients);', so $clienthost/$pbsserver
will not behave as usual.  Try the '$pbsclient' directive --
it should work in 2.3.1 in the sence that the given host will
be added to the 'okclients' tree.

Looks like a regression to me, but it is too late in Russia to
judge for sure.  Will return to this tomorrow, if some other
person would not confirm or reject my suspicions.
