Note that if you are using Pete Wyckoff's "mpiexec" that talks to the TM 
interface then (depending on which version of Torque you are moving from) you 
may well end up loosing those jobs as Torque didn't use to save the file 
descriptors for those jobs (IIRC).

Garrick posted his method of doing rolling upgrades previously, see the 
archived version here:


He says:

  Don't restart MOMs on hosts that have running jobs.

You have been warned!

good luck!
