Hi Garrick and others, my situation go on, an now
grid1 is listed in the server_priv/nodes file.
I delete the "$restricted    grid1" line 
and MOM, SHED, and server are running.
[root at grid1 root]# ps ax|grep pbs
 2309 ?        S      0:19 /usr/local/sbin/pbs_mom
 2313 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/sbin/pbs_sched
 2317 ?        S      0:00 /usr/local/sbin/pbs_server
 2889 pts/0    S      0:00 grep pbs
In fact, when I submit a job, this job is in queue, but dont start unless 
(like root) I send a command qrun job# then the jobs run successfully.
I don't configure a the pbs schedule it is by default, and I only start 

thanks again,

It's perfectly fine that the server is also a node.  Just make sure that
both pbs_server and pbs_mom daemons are running.

It's unclear to me whether the scheduler is running.  According to the
logs earlier, it wasn't.

Nope.  'create node' is unsupported in qmgr.  You simply add the node to
server_priv/nodes and restart pbs_server.

Don't use $restricted unless you are on OSX with a broken bind()
