The problem we are seeing is that when a compute node fails, jobs get hosed in the queue and cannot be deleted either by the user or root administrator.  Has anyone else seen this problem?  If so, how did you clear the job(s)?  The only way I have been able to clear the job(s) is to rebuild a new server database by performing the command "pbs_server -t create" and then restarting the whole system normally subsequently with a "/sbin/services pbs_server reboot" scenario.

qterm -t quick
rm /var/spool/PBS/server_priv/jobs/jobid.*
rsh all_nodes_where_job_started rm /var/spool/PBS/mom_priv/jobs/jobid.*
restart relevant moms
start pbs_server
