[torqueusers] qsub: Bad UID for job execution

I had this same problem tonight. I am using torque 2.0.0p8 and 
configured my submit hosts in the torque.cfg file. I got the same error 
"Bad UID . . ." until I setup the /etc/hosts.equiv file on the pbs 
server. In my case it seems like the torque.cfg isn't working correctly. 
OR, am I assuming wrong that even though I specify submit hosts (see 
torque.cfg file below) that I still need to setup hosts.equiv?!
my torque.cfg file

SERVERHOST      pbsserverhostname
SUBMITHOSTS    submithost1,submithost2
