Odds are the problem is due to something missing or different in the
environment when running under the batch system vs running the program

Maybe using '-V' with qsub to import your current environment settings
will help.  Maybe checking your shell's initialization files when
running under a non-login and non-interactive situation (eg, running
rsh with a command).

In any event, whatever makes the abaqus program know how to use the
license server on the master node must be replicated in some way under
the batch system.

Hope this helps,
